Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
About California Prop 65
WARNING: Many foods and beverage cans have linings containing bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical known to the state of California to cause harm to the female reproductive system. Jar lids and bottle caps may also contain BPA. You can be exposed to BPA when you consume foods or beverages packed in these containers. For more information go to: www.P65Warnings.ca.gov/BPA.
Do KOIOS cans contain BPA or have a coating with BPA in it?
All KOIOS Beverage Corp products meet the guidelines set by the FDA and are completely safe to consume. Recently, media reports have raised questions about the use of bisphenol A (BPA) by can and bottle manufacturers. While can linings may contain trace amounts of BPA to prevent spoilage and protect food and beverages from direct contact with the can, these trace amounts are virtually eliminated during the curing process. The FDA website reports on a four-year study completed in 2014 that reaffirms that BPA is safe at the current levels occurring in foods. The European Food Safety Authority also updated their approval of BPA for food contact in 2014, concluding that BPA “poses no risk to human health from foodstuffs because current exposure to the chemical is too low to cause harm”.
In addition, plastic bottled water and soft drink containers are made from a plastic known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which does not contain BPA.
You can subscribe to receive BPA consumer updates direct from the FDA here.
The North American Metal Packaging Alliance also maintains a website specific to the issue of BPA in can coatings and the effort underway to find an alternative.
