Sieben seeks ban on chemical in children's containers
A revived movement to keep Minnesota children safe from toxic chemicals is beginning in the Legislature.
Three bills are aimed at removing chemicals such as formaldehyde and bisphenol A from products children use.
"As a mother, I know parents are concerned about the chemicals their kids are exposed to," Sen. Katie Sieben, DFL-Cottage Grove, said Thursday, Feb. 14. "The last thing a parent should have to worry about is harmful chemicals in their kids' food."
