Friends of the Earth in Germany, BUND, have tested canned drink products, and found Bisphenol A in all of the tested can linings, and traces of Bisphenol A in almost half of the drinks. In one beverage 3.9 micrograms Bisphenol A per litre was found. The test included among others Sprite, Red Bull, Nescafe, Coca-Cola, Becks Beer and Faxe beer cans.
BUND calls for a ban of Bisphenol A in products that come into contact with food. The Bisphenol A content in these cans are unlikely to pose independent health risks, but BUND highlights the health risk consumption of canned drinks adds to consumers' cumulative exposure to Bisphenol A.
