    I have never seen it, what does the ingredients list say? Is it really just chicken breast or does it also come in flavors like tinned tuna?

    How can you know whether or not the tin is lined with BPA...

    What is BPA?

    BPA is a kind of plastic that, when in contact with food or heated up (as tins are, for the sealing, cooking, and steralising process) release toxic chemicals into the food that can cause, amongst other things, cancer and hormonal changes.

    This is a great blog, Australian based, about it http://www.bpa-free.com.au/

    It's bisphenol, a nasty plastic chemical that apparently leaks into what it contains, baby bottles and now most water bottles are BPA free because of the links to all types of cancers and apparently has something to do with hormones? but it is still in most tinned food, and plastic containers -
    Australia is yet to have proper screening or labeling laws which hopefully will change soon ( Canada and I think most of Europe have banned it which is why at least most of our baby's bottles are free of it)
    The only way I know for sure that a can does not have BPA in it is if it says so, a lot of organic canned foods do, choice did a big study on it last year , I'll see if I can find it!
