Bisphenol A (BPA) is a chemical used in thousands of materials, including some plastics. We use BPA in the linings of our beverage cans and in other packaging such as metal caps. The linings protect the quality and taste of the beverage inside.
Extensive reviews have been conducted by regulatory agencies not only in Australia but also Canada, the European Union, Japan, New Zealand and the United States. These organisations include our local Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ) along with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (U.S. FDA) and European Food Safety Authority (EFSA). Each agency has determined the trace levels of BPA found in can linings poses no risk to consumers.
