Good News about BPA from Trader Joe's! - Page 2

post #21 of 25
That's really irritating about TJs. How scummy! We've been buying their canned stuff for that reason.

I guess the few canned things we buy, we'll have to switch to Tetrapaks. Those at least don't have BPA.

But cans can be recycled and tetrapacks can't be.

Why can't they just sell tomatoes in glass jars, like they do for the tomato sauce?

But then even some of the tomato sauce jars have lids that have BPA liners, so do we just grow our own and store it in jars other than Mason?

So frustrating.

Well, they can be in a few areas. (Go Princeton!) True that it isn't the environmentally friendly choice. However, in this case I am willing to sacrifice some landfill space for a little less BPA exposure -- we buy very very few canned/tetrapak things.

I guess I should get a pressure cooker for the beans, huh?

Oh, and one more question: are the lids to home canning jars safe?

Unfortuantly, from what I understand, there is indeed bpa on home-canning jar lids We should all write ball and complain!!
