Raw, adjective: 8. brutally harsh or unfair: a raw deal

Erghh. I was waiting for this.

You know that SIGG bottle you bought last year after the whole Nalgene-chemical-drama went down? Yeah, well it turns out the Swiss-made reusable water bottle is laden with chemicals, too. I knew it was just a matter of time.

Salon has a good round-up of coverage of the discovery that SIGG bottles made before August '08 include the endocrine-disruptor BPA. Read some of the outrage and then decide whether you're going to send yours back or just suck it up.

Bummer. I had a feeling the first time I looked into my SIGG that there had to be something fishy going on. Too good to be true.

A Very SIGG Deal (Salon)

I was so f'ing mad about this. Between my husband and I, we accrued three of 'em. All with the BPA lining. I agree that in the back of my mind I thought, "what is in that lining, and why buy aluminum that has to be lined when you can just get stainless steel?" Shoulda got Kleen Kanteen, I guess. (I just hate when people use K's in place of C's, so cheesy.)

This is proof to me that I am just a sucker for the next item on the list of "Stuff White People Like." Still ticks me off though.
