Would it not be best to have the products independently tested? Tupperware could tell you anything. Why use BPA in some products and not others? If it's not safe they shouldn't use it at all. I thought too that, well if i don't buy Tupperware I'd just be using other plastic products anyway but they don't cost enormous amounts of money. So if I'm going to spend that kind of money it would be "because" the products are safe.

After the pressure we applied on the company, Tupperware began publishing their own materials list - I don't see "Vent n Serve" on it, could these be the "Heat n Serve" line? If so, they contain BPA, like the Rock n Serve products.

What about Vent n Serve? Everything says Rock n Serve or Heat n Serve. There is a line called Vent n Serve. Any info on this?

@Anonymous (most recent): None of the items you describe are made of polycarbonate plastic. #7 does not always mean polycarbonate, and in the case of disposable packaging, it pretty much never does - PC is too expensive. In these cases #7 means that the plastic is made up of layers of different plastic types, and thus falls into this "Other" category.

yet, are you all still not using ketchup, mustard, mayo, salad dressings, quick/prepackaged snacks (puddings, jello & fruit, single serve yoghurt...)? Before tossing a great product look at the quick, dispossable items in your fridge and kids lunch bags,

OK, so does Tupperware children's set (spoon, travel case, cups, etc.) contain BPA or not? Please clarify as it looks like they're BPA free until I read the post witht he results of your phone calls to Tupperware...

I just spoke with a Tupperware Representative from Canada and he told me that anything from Tupperware that is microwavable has BPA in it. He also told me that the following itms have BPA in them: Prep Essential Cold Cut Keeper, Prep Essential Snack Storage, Stuffables, Season Serve Container, Crystal Wave Divided Dish, Quick Shake Container, Fridge Smart Container.

Listing update, 2/28/08: Removed this statement:

"Note [2/22/08]: We have received multiple comments from readers questioning the stated BPA status of Tupperware items. All of our research is collected from customer service representatives at the companies in question or from posted information on company websites; we will call Tupperware to confirm or correct this information and update this post accordingly, also documenting the outcome in a new post on Z Recommends. Please don't throw away your Tupperware until we get a chance to confirm or correct the information we collected from the company!"

For our statement about our findings on Tupperware, read this.

2008-02-26T12:50:00.000-06:00

I love my Tupperware and to think it is not safe...well, I just don't want to think about it!
Anyway, I am from Canada and on the Tupperware.ca website there is a statement from Tupperware about polycarbonates in their products. I did not see the same statement on the US Website. It is found under "Product News" found at the bottom left hand corner. While they do not deny that some of their product is made from PP#7, they do maintain that their baby bottles and childrens products are safe???? I guess we just have to exercise caution...but really, who do you believe these days???

2008-02-21T23:39:00.000-06:00

because of the chart on http://www.bisphenolafree.org I also thought that many of the children's items were BPA-free and have recently purchased many Tupperware items for my babies, thinking they were safe. I would really like to know which is the correct info so that I can either get rid of the products or continue to use them and know that my kids aren't being exposed to BPA.

2008-02-21T23:29:00.000-06:00

I was under the impression (from a list by checnet.org) that Tupperware's bowls, children's feeding lines, impressions line, and other products are made from POLYPROPYLENE. There are only a few products that are not BPA free. Could you please verify this info? Please check this out www.checnet.org/healthehouse/pdf/plasticchart.pdf
