LEGO has recently released Friends drinking bottle 850817, but there's no mention anywhere (not on the product itself, not on the product's web page) as to whether the product contains BPA (Bisphenol), a dangerous chemical (especially for children) commonly used in bottles.

Question: Does this product contain BPA?


Edit: This is not a duplicate question because it concerns a drinking bottle released in 2016, not vintage LEGO bricks. In addition, please note that the bottom of product 850817 has a recycling symbol with the number 7:

How Can You Tell if a Container Has BPA?
A resin code of 7 appearing on plastic containers indicates that the container may be made of a BPA-containing plastic. (U.S. Food and Drug Administration)

Remember the BPA scare? It's all but a crime to release a product that even thinks about having BPA. But I did the search anyway, and no, there is not any in this or any other LEGO product I can find to date. LEGO is pretty good about nontoxic products, drinking use intended or no. I mean, they're made for kids. Good question though.

    This question is not about Lego bricks, it is about a drinking bottle. – Gruber Apr 12 '16 at 8:36
  • I checked the bottle, too, just also mentioning that source. I talked to a friend from LEGO team, and no, no drinking products of theirs contain BPA. – Caleb Woodman Apr 12 '16 at 15:09
