I read a couple magazines at the gym tonight and was pleased to see that many of the ones geared towards parents give advice for how to avoid BPA and phthalates. Time magazine also recently published a great article about BPA and how much it increases in your blood from eating canned soup (1200%!!!). When my first child was a newborn in 2005, this information was nearly impossible to find. I’m happy to see it becoming more mainstream.
Speaking of BPA, I posted a year ago that Muer Glen tomato cans were lined with BPA, but that the company planned to phase out those cans (see undated post on their website as well). I bought a can to see and sure enough, the lining is now copper instead of a plastic looking white. Nothing printed on the cans mentions a change, but I wonder if the cans no longer contain BPA.
