SIGG bottles contained BPA - Page 3

post #41 of 201
I was pretty mad when I read about it too. I went to Sigg's website and read their all their info and decided to email Sigg. (liners@mysigg.com) They will replace old water bottles with their new ones. I mail my old ones back and they will issue a credit w/free shipping to use on their website. Still not sure I want new ones but we'll see...

I am opting out of the replacements. I ordered Klean Kanteens last night for all of us and will get rid of the Siggs.

DH thinks I should email Sigg and tell them they have lost my business, so I think I will do that.

So, weigh in here. Should I throw out my Siggs or donate them? They are in good shape, only one has a dent. Which is the better choice?

Aren't they recyclable? If so, I would choose that.

I was trying to decide between some (cute) Siggs or KK. Guess KK has my business. I'm about to buy one for each member of my family. (After payday next month we each get a different color.)

That makes me mad. I also questioned about their liner but I got a sigg because the top style you could cover it and keep it clean.

Just info - To those talking about using glass jars, the canning jar lids also have BPA in them so you would want to use ones that had a different type of lid.

Also the KK do leach as well, though its elements that are in the stainless steel at very small amounts.

What does stainless steel leach?

This really ticks me off.
I had slowly been moving away from Siggs, because I always worried about denting and the liner cracking. I just bought one for my son though cause he really loved the design, I hope it's the new one.

Fortunately, I have never like kk or sigg. You put water in them, even with ice (which is hard to get in) and ita warm in about 15 minutes... and the bottles always sweat. Bleah.

I really like those thermos ones.. but talk about pricy...

Nope.

The plastic "freezer lids" for Ball jars are made of #5 polypropylene (No BPA). They are water-tight, but I'd do a trial run before tossing one in the diaper bag. Just an FYI!

Theoretically, trace amounts of the metals could transfer. I don't think "leaching" would be an accurate term though. But unless you're heating it or putting acidic food in it, it's unlikely anything would transfer. Either way, I don't think it's not cause for concern.

I can't believe this. First Avent, and now Sigg.
WTF is wrong with these companies?

Putting ours in the recylcing today.

treehugger.com has this article
http://www.treehugger.com/files/2009...w-bpa-free.php
which lists the ceo's email address and suggests folks contact him with concerns:
steve.wasik.ceo@sigg.com

just sent him an email, which thus far has not bounced back. called his attention to the fact that there is a thread here on MDC which has been viewed by 1,478 people so far about BPA in the older sigg liners.

I don't have FooGoo cups but I have the similar "Funtainer" straw cups. They are fine for my older kids but my 4 yo ripped the straw so many times I think he used up all the replacements for his and the other kids. He was trying to get it off I guess. Plus now the gasket is gone from the top of his (I don't know how he got that out?) so it leaks unless it is kept upright.

So if you have a 3 or 4 yo who is into "investigating" things pretty thoroughly like mine DS was, this might not be the best cup for him or her. DS is 5 now and is okay with them. I will be sending one of the older kids' along with him to lunch.

I received an email response from the CEO of Sigg that said while he has great confidence in the old Sigg liners, he is passing my concern onto their Customer Service Dept. and they will contact me directly to advise me how to exchange the old bottles for the ones with the new liners.

Omgosh! I loved siggs so much and always recommended them over kk. My kk had rusted after 3 uses. And i usually don't buy products we eat or drink out of from China. I got a bunch of free KK's as gifts so we've been using those, but I seriously have 8 siggs. I better be getting replacements.
