Endocrine-disrupting chemical Bisphenol-A [BPA] was found in 67 percent of canned food products of top brands – including Campbell’s and Del Monte – according to a new report. Some companies have since announced a phasing-out of the toxic chemical.
“Our findings were alarming,” wrote the authors of the study, titled Buyer Beware. Of the 192 cans examined, 129 tested positive for BPA-based epoxy, though quantity levels were not included in the analysis. In addition, the study reported that“some retailers and brands have replaced BPA with PVC, made from vinyl chloride, a carcinogen.”
