BPA and Label Warnings


What happened to the BPA free icon?

Bisphenol A (BPA) is an organic synthetic material that after extensive study, the Federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says is being safely used in food packaging. Despite this, California added BPA to the list of more than 800 chemicals and substances under California Proposition 65. Of significant note is that California added BPA with zero tolerance, even though the FDA says it is safe. Some product packaging distributed by Crown Prince may have traces of BPA, although most of our products are packaged in cans that no longer use BPA in the can lining. Since BPA is ubiquitous in the environment, traces may be detected in items that were labeled “BPA Free”.

All products distributed by Crown Prince meet or exceed all Federal food safety and purity standards.


Why is there a “[California Proposition 65]” warning on cans of Crown Prince Smoked Oysters and Crown Prince Smoked Baby Clams?

Under California Proposition 65, lead and cadmium are listed as chemicals known to cause birth defects or other reproductive harm. These two products have been tested and found to contain amounts of lead and cadmium slightly above the Proposition 65 limits, but well below the FDA guidelines. See below for how our products compare to California Proposition 65 and FDA regulations regarding lead:

Why is there a California warning on Crown Prince products?

In order to comply with California Proposition 65 regulations, Crown Prince decided to provide a warning on all of our products to cover the possible presence of chemicals such as Bisphenol A, which has been added to the chemical list with zero tolerance even though FDA has found that Bisphenol A is being used safely in packaging that contacts food.

All products distributed by Crown Prince meet or exceed all Federal food safety and purity standards.
