BPA Bombshell: Industry Database Reveals 16,000 Foods with Toxic Chemical in Packaging

EWG has created the first easily, searchable database of nearly 16,000 processed food and drinks packaged in materials that may contain the hormone-disrupting chemical bisphenol A, or BPA.

The information on this list came from a food industry website listing thousands of food and beverage items and categories. But the website, which the industry made little effort to publicize, is a chaotic jumble of information - incomplete, inconsistent, poorly organized and hard to use.

Consumers have a right to know what's in their food - especially when it comes to an ingredient, such as BPA, that has been linked to cancer, infertility, brain, nervous system and cardiovascular abnormalities, diabetes, obesity and other serious disorders.

* The product names in the industry database are often an incomprehensible jumble of abbreviated words. To make the information more useful for consumers, EWG has used the UPCs provided by these companies to find the corresponding product name in LabelINSIGHT®. Please note, UPCs were not provided for every product and, therefore, some names remain as abbreviations. We will continue to update this information as we get more data.

† Disclaimer. EWG strives to ensure the accuracy of the information it publishes in order to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. However, the brands, product names, and findings reflected in this report may be incomplete or contain inaccuracies given that they are based on a list made publicly available here by third-party trade associations representing the food industry. Further, the information in this report reflects what EWG reviewed and analyzed as of May 27 2016, which may no longer be current. EWG therefore cannot guarantee the accuracy of the information and findings in the report and makes no representations or warranties about any of the products referenced therein. Please contact EWG at [email protected] if you see places where updates may be needed.
