The Skinny on BPA

BPA is a chemical used in the resin lining that coats the inside of metal product s, such as food cans, bottle tops and water supply lines. The use of polycarbonate plastic and epoxy resins for supplies in contact with food, like water bottles and sandwich containers, is recognized as safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, the European Commission's Scientific Committee on Food, the United Kingdom Food Standards Agency, the Japanese Ministry for Health, Labor and Welfare, and other regulatory authorities worldwide. In fact, scientific studies conducted as recently as the fall of 2014 by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) refuted the negative reports surrounding BPA.

It's used to make highly durable and lightweight products that are resistant to stains and odors and can handle hot and cold temperatures. It's also an environmentally responsible substitute for disposable water bottles. We have many water bottle and BPA-free plastic containers to choose from at Quality Logo Products!
