Is BPA in food harmful?
Very small amounts of BPA can transfer from packaging into food and drinks, but these levels of exposure are not considered to be harmful. Independent experts have worked out how much BPA we can consume every day over a lifetime without coming to any harm, and the amount people actually absorb from all food and drink is significantly below this level.
Independent studies have shown that, even when consumed at high levels, BPA is rapidly absorbed, detoxified, and eliminated from humans and, therefore, is not a health concern.
