I’ve written about BPA for years. Not only am I not a fan of BPA, but I have worked to rid our kitchen of it. I have also made blogs to inform people about some of the suspected health issues that could be associated with exposure to the chemical found in plastic. There are three big areas where people come into contact with BPA:
1) Aluminum and tin can linings, which includes soda cans
2) The #7 polycarbonate plastics, the hard clear kind
3) Smooth and slippery thermal receipts
The newest convert to the BPA-free bandwagon is Amy’s. Here’s what Amy’s website says about BPA:
“Q. Does Amy’s use cans with BPA liners?
- We are pleased to announce that as of March 1, 2012, Amy’s has completely transitioned to cans using no BPA in the formulation of its liner. Even though BPA is omnipresent in the environment from a multitude of sources, testing levels on our canned products with the new liner are showing reduced BPA levels of less than 1 part per billion.“
This is good news for people trying to avoid PBA.
