Found 10 records similar to Bisphenol A and BPA Alternatives in Selected Canned Foods and Infant Formula - April 1, 2018 to March 31, 2019

Federal

Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used in the production of polycarbonate (PC) and epoxy resins. PC is used in food storage containers such as water bottles, and epoxy resins are used in the internal coating for food and beverage cans to protect the food from direct contact with metal. Under certain conditions, small amounts of BPA can migrate from PC plastic containers and cans with epoxy coating into foods, especially at elevated temperatures. BPA is an endocrine disruptor, and mimics the action of the hormone estrogen, although its potency is orders of magnitude lower than endogenous estrogens.

This notice applies to owners of facilities that manufacture or use greater than 100 kg of bisphenol A per year (alone or in a mixture), release effluents containing bisphenol A, and are involved in the activities specified in the notice. This notice has been in effect since April 14, 2012, for facilities who manufacture or use BPA. Although the initial facilities subject have completed their obligations, this notice is still in effect. This means that new facilities could become subject if they meet the requirement(s) of the notice.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. The Levels of Human Exposure to Harmful Substances indicator presents the concentrations of select environmental chemicals in the Canadian population from Cycle 1 (2007–2009), Cycle 2 (2009–2011), and Cycle 3 (2012–2013) of the Canadian Health Measures Survey. The indicator includes cadmium, lead and mercury in blood and bisphenol A (BPA) in urine for participants aged 6 to 79 years, as well as the concentration of 2,2',4,4'-tetrabromodiphenyl ether (PBDE-47) and perfluorooctane sulfonate (PFOS) in blood plasma for participants aged 20 to 79 years. These results are important to monitoring chemical exposure and to track trends in Canadians over time.

The Canadian Environmental Sustainability Indicators (CESI) program provides data and information to track Canada's performance on key environmental sustainability issues. These indicators present the concentrations of 4 substances (mercury, lead, cadmium and bisphenol A) in Canadians for the periods 2007 to 2009, 2009 to 2011, 2012 to 2013, and 2014 to 2015. Chemical substances are everywhere, including in the air, soil, water, products and food, and can enter the body through ingestion, inhalation and skin contact. Through biomonitoring, the government can identify priorities, develop or revise risk management strategies, and track progress on policies put in place to reduce or control these substances.

Furan is a chemical that can unintentionally form in foods that undergo thermal treatment such as canning. Precursors to furan that are often present in food include ascorbic acid, polyunsaturated fatty acids, amino acids and sugars. This compound occasionally coexists with 2-methylfuran and 3-methylfuran. Furan may pose a health risk to the consumer, as the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified it as 'possibly carcinogenic to humans'.
