Products with BPA linings or seals
NOTICE: On December 30, 2017, the temporary regulation that allows for manufacturers to report products packaged in containers with intentionally added BPA to OEHHA will expire. After December 30, 2017, OEHHA will no longer accept this information and will remove from its website the list of products packaged in containers with BPA. Manufacturers that need to provide warnings for exposures to BPA that is used in food packaging should refer to the general consumer product warning provisions of the regulations for acceptable methods and content for exposures to BPA. A Question and Answer document for businesses regarding the warning regulations can be found at Proposition 65 - Clear and Reasonable Warnings - Questions and Answers for Businesses.
Beginning on January 1, 2017, if you want your food or beverage product to be covered by the point-of-sale BPA warning, you need to give OEHHA the following information in a searchable, electronic format to facilitate posting information on the lead agency website:
A list of all food products for which a warning is being provided in which bisphenol A was intentionally used in the manufacture of the can lining or jar or bottle seals. The food product must be identified by:
- Brand name
- Product description, including the federal Food and Drug Administration product category for the food
- Universal Product Code or other specific identifying designation (if no UPC is used on the product)
- Where bisphenol A is no longer used in the manufacture of the product packaging but the product is still available in commerce, the last expiration or “use by” date for the product where bisphenol A was intentionally used in the can linings or seals
