Alert! Older SIGG Bottles Contain BPA

Alert! Older SIGG Bottles Contain BPA

We've written here before about SIGG water bottles — promoting them as a great alternative to plastic water bottles. So we were pretty shocked when we read this morning at Inhabitat that SIGG bottles made before August of last year contain BPA in their liner. Shocked and mad.

We've been drinking out of SIGGs for well over two years now. We ditched the good ol' Nalgene in favor of them.

Here is the press release.

So, before we got too upset we did read the release carefully, and were a bit relieved to read this: "These [bottles manufactured before August 2008] have been thoroughly tested and showed 0% leaching of BPA."

Still, we're not comfortable drinking out of these old SIGGs anymore. What should we do? What are you going to do with your older SIGGs?
