Australian Unit Of Heinz Is Phasing Out Product Packaging Containing BPA

July 1, 2010: 04:19 AM EST
The Heinz Australian business unit announced that it has begun to phase out use of bisphenol A (BPA) in baby food packaging. Canned foods are the first priority, Heinz said. The phase-out coincides with an announcement by Parliamentary Secretary for Health Mark Butler that some big retailers in Australia were phasing out products containing BPA. Heinz said it was taking the action because of consumer concerns, despite declarations from Australian and other international food officials that BPA was “completely safe” to use in food packages. The company cited a U.S. FDA opinion, for example, that “the benefit of a stable source of good nutrition outweighs the potential risk from BPA exposure.”
