Survey of bisphenol A and bisphenol F in canned foods
Bisphenol A (BPA) and bisphenol F (BPF) have been determined in a range of canned foods. Sixty-two different canned foods were purchased from retail outlets in the UK from January to November 2000 and the contents extracted and analysed by GC-MS for BPA and BPF isomers. The following canned products were analysed: fish in aqueous media, 10 samples; vegetables, 10; beverages, 11; soup, 10; desserts, five; fruit, two; infant formula, four; pasta, five; and meat products, five. BPF isomers were not detected in any of the canned foods with detection limits of 0.005 mg kg-1 for the 2,2′ and 2,4′ isomers and 0.01 mg kg-1 for the 4,4′ isomer. BPA was detected in 38 samples with a detection limit of 0.002 mg kg-1. Of these, BPA was quantified in 37 canned foods at levels from 0.007 mg kg-1, with one sample of meat containing a mean level of 0.38 mg kg-1. All other samples contained <0.07 mg kg-1 BPA.
