Toxic Chemical BPA Found in 90 Percent of Canned Goods

Common canned foods may contain levels of bisphenol A (BPA) equal to the levels shown to cause health problems in laboratory animals.

A recent study tested canned food for BPA contamination, and over 90 percent of the cans tested had detectable levels of BPA, some at higher levels than have been detected previously.

Contaminated Without Consent reports:

“The canned foods tested were brand name fish, fruits, vegetables, beans, soups, tomato products, sodas, and milks ... purchased from retail stores ... One can of DelMonte green beans had the highest levels of BPA ever found in canned food, at 1,140 parts per billion.”
