Parents Sue Baby Bottle Companies

Several makers of baby bottles are the target of a federal lawsuit, filed by four Ohio parents.

The lawsuit claims bottles made by five companies, including Playtex, Evenflo and Gerber, contain a harmful chemical associated with child health problems and that the manufacturers didn't warn their customers. The chemical bi-sphenol a or BPA, is used in the making of plastic baby bottles and has been known to seep from the bottles and sippy-cups into liquids.

The lawsuit seeks an unspecified amount for damages. The companies involved have not commented.
