Any acceptable cans?

I'm wondering if anyone knows for a fact if any canned foods are packed without Bisphenol-A or any other kinds of potentially harmful compounds in the can lining?

Sean, it looks like Europe is moving toward getting rid of BPA, although baby steps - they've just banned it in baby bottles: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bisphenol_A#Europe - although the UK is sticking with the standard "levels are too low to worry about" crap. :(

If only there were articles like this for the UK, and the rest of the world.

Oh, man, do I love Muir Glen. Have lately tried to avoid canned tomatoes by and large due to the BPA (and acidic foods supposedly being the worst for leaching) but now that I've read this I'm getting excited to have a heavier rotation of homemade tomato sauces! Thanks. :)

muir glen is also ditching the bpa soon, too. thank goodness because next to my own home-canned tomatoes, their organic fire roasted tomatoes are the BEST for sauce!
