It almost seems like retail buyers and category managers have to start asking this question with every product that they source.
As information continues to mount all buyers better hope they have a track record of having asked. Originally BPA was used in can liners and baby bottles. Most recently it was found in receipt paper. It’s starting to get pretty clear that we have to ask where this product isn’t versus where it is. And the information continues to mount as to the dangers BPA presents.
Most recently a study published in the journal of Fertility and Sterility claims that BPA or Bisphenol A appears to adversely affect sperm in men.
The next time I’m asked if I want a receipt I’m going to say no. That should interest my accountant when they ask for my receipts during tax season. I’ll just say you go pick them up.
We look forward to and appreciate your comments.
