About a month and a half ago, I wrote this post “Sigg: not so super, after all?” I don’t get attached to brands much, but somehow I had developed an affection for my Sigg.
The news that Sigg’s original liners had been made with BPA felt like a sneaky little trick had been played on me. Sure, I understand that the company says it never claimed its liners were not made of BPA, but rather that its liners didn’t leach BPA. (I wanted to provide you with the CEO’s exact words in explaining this issue, but it looks like his letter has been taken down from the site now – strange.)
I’ve since sent my old Sigg bottles back (we had four in our family) and requested ones with the new liner. This voluntary exchange program was likely a major logistical nightmare for the company, but to its credit, I did receive new bottles this week by courier and it was a pretty quick and easy process from my end.
But still … I don’t have the same warm & fuzzies for this brand like I used to. How about you?
