For Some Canned Food Companies, BPA Still Rampant

Nadia Prupis, staff writer

There's good news and bad news for health-conscious consumers: of 252 brands that make canned foods, less than 50 percent use bisphenol-A (BPA) lined cans for some or all of their products—but just barely, according to a new survey by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) released Wednesday.

Good suggestion! If at all possible make the switch. I rarely purchase canned anything, preferring frozen veggies to canned for instance, but am even more aware now than I ever was that buying canned is bad unless the can is glass. smile

This is just one manifestation of how much effect the un- (or very light) regulation of companies is doing to us.
Bpa is also used in cash register receipts. Note that even though it's a known carcinogen, The Owners do not remove it from contact with humans. They could, but they choose not to.
