The Vermont Senate is expected to take a final vote this week on a bill that would phase out the chemical bisphenol-A in some types of packaging.

The bill would ban use of the chemical in reusable food and beverage containers, as well as infant formula and baby food containers.

Planned Parenthood of Northern New England says BPA has been linked to a high number of health problems, including infertility, miscarriage, and breast and prostate cancer.

The American Chemistry Council maintains that the chemical is safe and helps keep food safe and fresh.
