Is Eating Canned Food Bad for You?
Canned tomatoes and sauces
The FDA, based on its most recent safety assessment, has deemed levels of BPA in canned foods safe for human consumption, but watchdog organizations still warn that BPA negatively affects health. In response to consumer demand, the tomato industry has changed its practices, and today at least 90 percent of all retail processed tomato products do not use BPA. This may be especially important with acidic foods because they leach out the BPA more than other foods—when BPA is present, canned tomatoes and tomato sauces tend to test higher in BPA content, according to Consumer Reports.
