n what can be considered a victory for the countless Americans who do not wish to consume food that contains toxins, food giant Del Monte has announced that it will start using packaging that does not contain bisphenol A (BPA).

The canned goods firm, which is based in San Francisco, said that the switch would start with its tomato and fruit products. By May, almost 100 percent of its vegetable products should be in line with the new policy.

Del Monte is not the only firm to have made such a move recently. Campbell Soup announced that it would be transitioning to BPA-free cans in the US and Canada by the middle of next year, switching to polyester or acrylic-based linings instead. Around three-fourths of its soup products should already have made the switch by the end of this year. General Mills has also reluctantly agreed to start labeling GMO products, largely in response to a few state laws mandating such labels.

Are food companies finally listening to consumers?
