List of BPA-Free Food Cans

Get Your Food Minus the Chemicals

Last year I told you about a Consumer Reports study, which detected bisphenol A (BPA) in the inner lining of most canned goods. And while the FDA has yet to ban the use of BPA in food packaging, it did announce earlier this year that the industrial chemical may pose some concern. As a result, the government agency is investing $30 million into a more comprehensive study on the effects BPA has on infants and adults.

In the meantime, those of you who are worried about your exposure should make sure your to-go containers and water bottles are BPA-free. Unfortunately, most canned goods are still made using BPA. In these instances it might be best to seek out foods packaged in glass, paper, or freezer bags. As I said earlier, most canned goods are made with BPA, but not all of them! The eco-conscious folks at Treehugger were kind enough to round up a list of seven companies making BPA-free canned goods.

  1. Eden Organic canned beans, grains, and chilis
  2. Vital Choice Marine Stewardship Council (MSC) cerified salmon, albacore tuna, sardines, and mackerel
  3. Oregon's Choice MSC certified albacore
  4. Eco Fish albacore tuna
  5. Wild Planet skipjack and albacore tunas
  6. Trader Joe's canned corn, canned beans, canned fish, canned poultry, and canned beef
  7. Edward & Sons Native Forest and Nature Factor goods of fruits, vegetables, chutneys, and coconut milk
