Companies Graded on Getting Chemical BPA Out of Cans

Some companies are responding faster than federal regulators to consumer concerns about bisphenol-A (BPA) -- and some are not.

H.J. Heinz, ConAgra, and Hain Celestial have begun using BPA-free linings in some of their cans. They have set timelines for eliminating the chemical from all products. Each of these companies received an “A” in a report from Green Century Capital Management, an investment advisory firm, and As You Sow, an environmental group.

USA Today reports:

“Many others -- such as Coca-Cola, Del Monte, Safeway, and Walmart -- got failing grades for failing to commit to getting rid of BPA, or bisphenol-A,, linked to a variety of health problems in hundreds of animal experiments and a small, but growing number of human studies.”
