What about BPA?

Bisphenol A, commonly abbreviated as BPA, is an organic compound with two phenol functional groups. Bisphenol A is used primarily to make plastics, and products containing bisphenol A-based plastics have been in commerce for more than 50 years. It is a key monomer in production of epoxy resins and in the most common form of polycarbonate plastic. Concerns about the use of bisphenol A in consumer products have been regularly reported in the news media since 2008.
In regards to BPA and Tupperware, of particular importance is this excerpt from our 2008 report:
"Tupperware has also conducted studies through independent testing laboratories to confirm the safety of our materials and has found the migration levels of BPA in our polycarbonate products to be well within acceptable levels specified by the governmental regulatory agencies."
Polycarbonate is not used in Tupperware children’s toys.
