Now the question is when will the transition actually happen? Some of their products have already been switched over to BPA-free containers, but they haven’t announced which. For now it’s best to stick with brands that are already confirmed BPA-free. In the meantime, let Campbell’s know that we’re thrilled with their decision, but would like to know more about their planned timeline by sending a letter.
The excitement isn’t over quite yet though. Now we’ll anxiously await the FDA’s long overdue decision about whether BPA should be banned in all food packaging on March 31, 2012. Here’s hoping that the chemical industry doesn’t sway the FDA again with their extreme lobbying efforts…
I’m sure we can all agree that the next chapter of this story will involve learning exactly what materials are being used in place of BPA. Don’t you worry – we’ve got the Extractor on the job!
