BPA Free

B&C Plastics Ltd. does not produce
material containing BPA.

Ongoing BPA Concerns:

BPA, or bisphenol-a, is a chemical used to make polycarbonate, which is a type of plastic. It is commonly found in clear rigid containers including baby bottles and reusable water bottles. It is also found in the lining of most canned foods.

Recent research suggests that BPA is toxic to animals and may impact human hormones. According to the Washington Post, a draft report from the U.S. National Toxicology Program expressed concern that BPA could cause behavioral changes in infants and children and triggering the early onset of puberty in females. On April 18, 2008, the Canadian government banned the use of polycarbonate in infant bottles.

Scientists are still debating BPA’s potential impact on humans. Issues in question are whether or not polycarbonate containers leech a significant amount of BPA, whether adults are impacted by BPA, and levels of toxicity.

B&C Plastics Ltd. has never produced polycarbonate or used BPA.

Polycarbonate food containers containing BPA are often marked with recycling #7. However, not all products labeled #7 contain BPA. For more information please visit the articles on the following web sites.
