Can history overview

A French inventor Nicholas Apperts in1810 who sold the patent to 2 English entrepreneurs in 1813 for commercial application and sold the first canned products to the British army has invented tin cans. Metal canning developed during the 20th century. For instance the American Can Company became the largest can producer in the early 20th century.

Cans are made primarily of metal including steel, aluminum and tin and cans are widely recycled, over 50%.

Can and health safety and BPA

Since the beginning cans have used material such as lead (no longer in use) and tin (for anti corrosion property) that can be harmful to the health if ingested. Recently some cans are lined with thin layer of white plastic containing BPA. Most BPA in can is found when the inside of a can canned is coated with a thin layer of white plastic/epoxy lining to protect acid food such as tomato from contact with metal.

Companies are starting to eliminate BPA coating from their product such as Campbell’s soup.

See link to article from treehugger and list of companies that are not using BPA in their canned product:

Canned Jewelry and BPA

While BPA is toxic compound when ingested, Canned Jewelry does not use cans that have been previously coated with white epoxy lining just to be safe.
