Bisphenol-A, or BPA, is a substance used to make the epoxy resins linings of metal food and beverage cans. In recent years, BPA has been the subject of many conversations about food safety. In this video, Dr. John M. Rost, Chairman of the North American Metal Packaging Alliance, Inc. (NAMPA), discusses what BPA is, how and why it is used in food packaging, the results from recent scientific studies supporting its safety, and the position of regulatory bodies around the world that continue to approve BPA as safe for use in food contact applications.
