(KATU) — The Canadian government has listed a common ingredient in plastic bottles, toys and other items as toxic.

Bisphenol A, better known as BPA, is commonly used in plastic water bottles, plastic toys and other plastic items. It has been used for the last 50 years in numerous products.

In 2008, concerns about the effect of BPA had on unborn children, female reproductive systems and as a link to some chronic diseases such as diabetes and heart problems led many companies to turn away from using the substance in their plastic products.
