Evidence continues to pile up that BPA (Bisphenol A) is finding it’s way into our food.  The levels of BPA found in some of the food products recently tested skirted close to what scientists believe are dangerous levels, especially for children. Canned Del Monte Fresh Cut Green Beans Blue Lake had the highest amount of BPA for a single sample,  Progresso Vegetable Soup BPA levels ranged from 67 to 134 ppb. Campbell’s Condensed Chicken Noodle Soup had BPA levels ranging from 54.5 to 102 ppb. The study also showed that buying metal cans while helping does not always keep you safe from BPA exposure. It also found that some products labeled BPA free still had BPA found in them.
