[[size=24]color=indigo][size=18]I would like to highlight the problems caused by Bisphenol A (BPA) and phthalates .
please read the following.

Pet Chew Toys May Contain BPA and Phthalates (Study) – Which Brands Don’t ©

Many pet parents buy chew toys for their dog for Christmas or just for fun. The Internet has inspired more safety-conscious choices, but there’s a new threat that many may not be aware of.

Recent Texas Tech University research indicates dogs that chew on some “plastic” toys may be exposed to Phthalates and Bisphenol A (BPA). No studies have been done on dogs to determine if these chemicals are as harmful as they have proven to be for humans. However, considering many dog chew toys contain much higher levels of these chemicals than children’s toys do, and pets are often even more sensitive to chemicals than humans, it may be wise to be cautious.

Health problems linked to BPA and Phthalates in humans include some cancers, infertility, and reproductive disorders. Canada, the US and the European Union have banned harmful Phthalates and BPA in many children and infant products (such as baby bottles).
