Some of you might have seen my post in regards wanting to get an answer from Loblaws and BPA in some of there products this is the answer I got...

"Dear Ms. Wiseman,

And this is what I answered back...

"Dear Ms. Weiss,

Thank you for taking time to answer my questions, however I am not satisfied with this answer.  I am in no doubt that all your products meet canadian government regulation; however it is my responsibility as a mother to ensure I feel all food consumed by my child meet my standards.  We used to buy Eden Organic beans not because they are organic but because they are bpa free.  Loblaws has now stopped  carrying this product and I am trying to find a replacement product I can purchase from my grocery store.  We do not but any products that come in packaging that contains bpa.  I have contacted some of the major brands you carry but was also curious to see if your own store brands contained bpa in the packaging.  

Please answer my question does your canned beans such as kidney beans, chickpeas, black beans and other contain bpa in the packaging.

thank you"

Lets see what happens now.

Unfortunately that's a pretty typical response. I guess it's time to start making your own.... =(

I don't see that you've supplied any update on this issue. I wonder what response I'll get to my inquiry today at the Loblaw site as to which of their No Name brand food products contain BPA in or on the food contact surfaces.

we never received anything from them. I have not pushed it any harder as I really did not have time to follow up. I am very curious however to see what you get from them
