BPA-based epoxy can linings help protect the integrity and safety of canned food.
BPA: Making products convenient and durable
BPA is a critical component for making polycarbonate, a high-performance, lightweight, strong, and heat-resistant plastic.
- In March 2013, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) updated its current perspective on BPA, stating that “BPA is safe at the very low levels that occur in some foods” and “the use of BPA in food packaging and containers is safe.” FDA’s current assessment is based on review by FDA scientists of hundreds of studies, including the latest findings from new studies conducted by the agency’s National Center for Toxicological Research (NCTR).FDA's updated assessment once again confirms the safety of BPA in food-contact materials based on the best available science. Visit the FDA website for more information on FDA’s perspective.
