BPA here, not there

April 23rd, 2012 at 12:38 pm

Just to follow up on another post, I did some quick research on which brands offer BPA-free can linings, and which do not.

For the record, Muir Glen, Amy's and Whole Foods STILL USE BPA can linings. Trader Joe's only offers BPA-free for corn, beans and canned fish and poulty but BPA chili, soups and tomato products.

Hain Celestial, which owns Healthy Valley, Earth's Best and Wesrtbae, and ConAgra, which owns Hunts, helathy Choicdr and Heinz, have STARTED using BPA free cans for certain products, but not all.

    At Trader Joe's is it just the regular types of beans or the green beans, too, that are BPA free?

  2. PatientSaver Says:

    The article i referenced didn't make that distinction, but i would assume all beans.

    You can find a bunch of websites that address this by searching "BPA-free canned food brands" or probably "Trader Joe BPA free foods."

    I have quite a few Amy's soups ...

    I've found many sites that say Muir Glen went BPA-free (started transitioning in late 2010); here's one:!-Tomatoes-BPA-free

    Oh, and Robin, here's an article that purports all TJ beans except baked beans are BPA free. The same is true of Eden Organics.
