KENNEWICK, Wash.-  Starting July 1st bottles and cups sold for children under age three will no longer be allowed to contain the chemical Bisphenol-A or BPA.

It's the first step in a law passed last year banning the chemical in certain products.

Next July sports bottles containing BPA will come off the shelves.

Many scientists say the chemical can affect brain development, behavior, and the prostate gland.
