BPA in Your Food: Your Right-to-Know
Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical known to cause birth defects and linked to breast cancer, prostate cancer, obesity, diabetes and numerous other serious health concerns.
Last year, California added this toxic chemical to the state’s Proposition 65 list, notifying canned food makers that they would need to start warning consumers about BPA in their products by May 2016.
Now, having had more than a year to prepare for the warning law to come into effect, canned food makers say they still need more time to comply with the law. So the state has proposed extending the rule that lets canned food companies deny consumers their right to know about BPA in their products.
We deserve the right-to-know when our food contains toxic chemicals like BPA! Tell state regulators that we demand to know when canned food contains BPA.
