Bisphenol A for Thanksgiving

A Minnesota based group has proudced a report that claims the chemical BPA has been found in several different kinds of canned foods frequently used to prepare meals at Thanksgiving.

The Breast Cancer Fund and the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy contend that the chemical bisphenol A has been linked to adverse health effects and was detected in tests of specific brands of Cream of Mushroom Soup, Turkey Gravy, Evaporated Milk, Corn, Green Beans and Cranberry Sauce.

Kathleen Schuler is a senior policy analyst at the Institute for Agriculture and Trade Policy (IATP) and co-director of Healthy Legacy, two of the organizations behind this recent report. She visited KFAI and spoke with Mike Fischbein on The Takeaway.
