Question about BPA in cans

Answered on August 19, 2014

So the first thing is we have a bunch of this wild and local canned tuna and I called up the company to see if the cans contain bpa. All he was able to say though is that they don't use plastic liners? Does that mean it's BPA free?

The other thing is that I just found out that Eden's canned tomatoes actually DO contain bpa.. Is that true!?!? Because we have a bunch of that stuff and I just thought everything produced by that brand was all BPA free.

Yep, they switch to less-tested bis-phenol derivatives, and charge more for their "healthier" BPA-free product. There's a sucker born ever minute they say.

I suspect that a lot of them just use BPS instead.

i submit for your consideration; just as no testing was done on the effects of BPA prior to it being used to line aluminum cans, so it is with the stuff some companies use instead of plastics containing BPA. switching to these may be no better.

BPA is not the only compound (likely) causing hormonal response, it's just one that has been singled out. Also, cans need to be BPA free, but so do the lids - not always the case.
