STOP the use of BPA in food cans from our Grocery Stores.
This petition had 1,829 supporters
The majority of food cans found in major Canadian retail stores contain bisphenol A, or BPA, a chemical linked to health concerns. Bisphenol A (BPA) continues to be widely present in the lining of many food canes in our grocery stores and that the biggest retailers do not yet have concrete plans to substitute BPA with a safer alternative.
This means that Canadians are putting their health at risk when they consume canned foods !!
It is alarming that 95 % of Canadians have BPA in their bodies, and research shows that dietary sources of BPA (like canned foods) contribute to significantly to our body burden of BPA.
BPA is already banned in baby bottles and sippy cups because it is toxic. Canadians should not be putting their health risk when they eat canned food…. Ask the federal government to ban the use of BPA in food can linings by signing this petition.
