Breast Cancer Fund Tests Canned Food, BPA Found in Many Items

Posted on November 15, 2011

According to the morning news, products tested by the Breast Cancer Fund have shown signs of containing bisphenol A also known as BPA. The items tested by the Fund’s researchers consisted on varied canned foods used in Thanksgiving dinners.

The reports from the Breast Cancer Fund claim that BPA is directly linked to health effects like infertility, breast or prostate cancer, type 2 diabetes and even some neurological disorders.

This chemical has already been severely restricted in a few U.S. states and Canada although it has been used in food-can liners for many years.  Reports show that the presence of BPA can have something to do with the canning processes at the various facilities responsible for the products. Sometimes even transportation and storage conditions may make a difference in the contents of the products.

The items tested by the Breast Cancer Fund include Campbell’s Turkey Gravy, Green Giant Cut Green Beans (by General Mills), Campbell’s Cream of Mushroom Soup, Libby’s Pumpkin (by Nestle), Carnation Evaporated Milk (by Nestle), Del Monte Fresh Cut Sweet Corn (Cream Style) and Ocean Spray Jellied Cranberry Sauce.

As a Los Angeles product liability lawyer, I urge all readers to be aware of using such products on your everyday diet. Personal injury lawyers can assure you, there are many cases related to permanent injuries caused by contaminated products that can be fatal. Remember to return to this blog regularly so you will always know what food products are being recalled.
