Are you referring to BPA (bisphenol-A) in can linings?
I am not familiar with BTA in can linings. If you were referring to BPA, then yes Hy-Vee's canned products do use BPA in the lining of their cans.

BPA is one of the most extensively tested materials in use today. BPA has been safely used in consumer products and researched and studied for over 40 years. The weight of scientific evidence supports the safety of BPA and provides reassurance that there is no basis for human health concerns from exposure to BPA.

Researchers from government agencies, academic facilities, and industries worldwide have studied the potential for BPA to migrate from polycarbonate plastics into foods and beverages. These studies consistently show that the potential leaching of BPA into food is extremely low, generally less than 5 parts per billion under conditions typical for uses of polycarbonate products. At this level, a consumer would have to ingest more than 1,300 pounds of food and beverages in contact with polycarbonate every day for an entire lifetime to exceed the safe level of BPA set by the U.S. EPA (Environmental Protection Agency). Therefore, human exposure to BPA from polycarbonate plastics is minimal and poses no known health risk.

Please feel free to ask any additional questions. Happy holidays!

Hi,
I am glad to know I am not risking our health in buying Hy-Vee's canned goods. Hy-Vee's canned foods have been a part of my grocery list and will be forever part. I am working mom and having these are some kind of a help in our meal. Thank you for the guaranteed safety.
