Baby bottles release millions of microplastic particles, study finds

Polypropylene baby bottles were found to release millions of microplastic particles, which was made worse by hot liquids, according to a new study.

Researchers from Trinity College Dublin published findings in Nature Food on Monday. They found that polypropylene bottles release as many as 16.2 million microplastic particles per liter and hot water ramps up the release to 55 million particles.

According to the study, bottle sterilization and prepping exposes infants to about 1 million microplastic particles on a daily average.
