New York--Toys R Us has announced it will phase out all plastic baby bottles that contain the chemical bisphenol-A (BIS'-fuh-nawl ay), also known as BPA.

A National Institutes of Health report expressed concern over the chemical, saying exposure may be linked with prostate cancer, breast cancer, and early puberty.

Questions arose recently about whether BPA was harmful to infants.

Company officials say they plan to have the bottles off the shelves by the end of the year.

Wal-Mart officials announced last week they expect their store's assortment of baby bottles to be BPA free by next year.
