Dollar Store Canned Goods
Dollar stores’ private-label canned goods are highly likely to have traces of BPA in the linings, according to a report released earlier this year by ToxicFoodCans.org and partner organizations. BPA is said to be harmful to children and disruptive to the reproductive system, according to nonprofit organization Environmental Working Group.
It’s important to note that some major grocery chains and big-box retailers also carry BPA-coated cans, according to ToxicFoodCans.org. As always, it’s best to do your research to find the safest brands before you buy. That way, you can still stick to your grocery budget and buy foods that are safe and healthy.
