Canada has previously taken steps to reduce the use of bisphenol A (BPA), a toxic chemical that causes prostate and breast cancer. It has been widely used in plastics, cans, water bottles and paper receipts. In many cases it has been replaced by similar chemicals such as Bisphenol S (BPS).

A new study provides for the first time evidence that BPS and alternative chemicals found on food labels are moving from packaging materials to foods people eat.

Researchers examined the variety of packaged fresh foods sold in Canada, such as meats, cheeses, vegetables and baked goods. They found relatively high concentrations of BPS on food labels.
