In this most recent study, Health Canada, the federal department responsible for helping Canadians maintain their health through the assessment of the safety of drugs and consumer products, examined 78 canned food products for the presence of B.P.A. B.P.A. is used in making epoxy resins, which are used as protective linings on the inside of metal lids and containers.
The canned goods tested included tuna, soups, vegetables and tomato products. The agency said that it would continue to work to “limit human exposure to B.P.A. to the greatest extent possible.”
