TORONTO, Sept. 19 /CNW/ - Today Energizer Canada, Inc., a subsidiary of
the US based Energizer Holdings, Inc. and the maker of Playtex Infant Care
products announced it is launching the VentAire(TM) Advanced bottle, in a
bisphenol-A (BPA)-free material, currently shipping to Canadian retailers
The new VentAire(TM) Advanced bottle is made out of BPA-free clarified
polypropylene, a durable and translucent plastic. The bottle design offers
benefits for infants as it has been clinically shown to reduce colic, gas and
spit-up better than competitors, as shown in a clinical study of over 11,000
feedings. In fact, eight out of 10 moms in the study confirmed that their baby
showed fewer signs of colic using the VentAire(TM) Advanced system versus
three leading brands(*).
"The VentAire(TM) Advanced bottle was designed with a unique
micro-channel bottom vent to prevent air from mixing with the liquid ensuring
that infants don't ingest excess air," said John Rousso, director of research
and development, Playtex Infant Care. "And, its unique angled shape supports a
semi-upright feeding position, which is recommended by pediatricians to help
prevent ear infections."
Playtex Infant Care is committed to providing parents with BPA-free
products. The Playtex(R) Drop-Ins(R) Original Nurser System has always been
BPA-free and now with the addition of the VentAire(TM) Advanced line-up,
Playtex now offers two BPA-free infant feeding alternatives for Canadian
"As a leader in infant care, Playtex is responding to consumer demand by
providing parents with a full line of BPA-free products that also provide
superior feeding and comfort benefits for infants and toddlers," said James
MacIntosh, General Manager, Energizer Canada Inc. "Canadians can find Playtex
(R) BPA-free products on shelves now. Consumers should look for the
BPA-free/Phthalate-free icon on Playtex(R) Infant Care products."
