Do you remember discovering SIGG water bottles? I certainly do…in fact; I believe that was my popular Holiday gift of choice a few years back. Thanks to some excellent blogs and a little bit of investigating I have learned that the manufactures of SIGG bottles are in some hot water. They revealed that bottles produced before 2008 have a liner that contains Bispenol-A (BPA). Bottles manufactured after 2008 have a BPA free liner. The bottles my children have been using are pre 2008 production. I am very disappointed and angry with myself for believing these bottles were the “healthy” option to traditional plastic bottles. I also find it interesting they have been sitting on this information for a year. (?)

I am no longer using our old SIGG bottles and will not be buying SIGG products in the future. Perhaps the leaching is minimal, but it is more of a confidence issue for me. I would like to hear your thoughts.
