New Study Finds BPA in Many Foods

A new study looked at three samples of each of 31 types of canned or plastic-packaged foods, along with an additional four examples of fresh meat and eight different types of pet food. All were analyzed for the presence of bisphenol-A (BPA).

Fully 60 percent of the different food products had measurable quantities of BPA. Pet food actually contained less of the pollutant than most of the foodstuffs intended for human consumption.

According to Science News:

“Topping the list: Del Monte Fresh Cut Green Beans sporting 26.6 to 65 nanograms of BPA per gram of product; Progresso Light Homestyle Vegetable and Rice Soup with 15.6 to 22.7 ng/g; two more Progresso soups with 4.46 to 11.7 ng/g; Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Noodle Soup with 4.46 to 7.05 ng/g; and Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and Meatballs with 4.31 to 5.04 ng/g.”
