Which Tupperware Products Have BPA In Them?September 4, 2009
AUTHOR’S NOTE: As of Spring 2010 (ish) all new tupperware products are BPA free. If you are wondering if your particular product contains BPA, please check the photos below. If your product is not shown here, it does NOT contain BPA. If you bought it since Spring 2010, it does NOT contain BPA.
A while back I posted about Tupperware and BPA, regarding Tupperware’s attitude toward BPA. Since I posted that, I am getting around 5 searches a day hitting my blog regarding Tupperware with many of them specifically trying to find out which lines of Tupperware have BPA in them. Thanks to Tupperware’s Types of plastics in Tupperware products and Recycling Codes pages, we know that the following product lines contain BPA.
Vent N’ Serve
Heat N’ Serve
Rock N’ Serve
Ice Prisms: Bowls, Pitcher and Tumbler Set
Microsteamer (base only)
Microwave Cooker – Oval (cover only)
Microwave Luncheon Plate
Quick Chef (base only)
This line contains many more items, like a martini shaker and glasses, coasters, stir sticks, and oil bottles. The bowls and the pitcher/tumbler set are the most common that you will find.
Tumbler Bouquet and Pitcher Set (Pitcher only)
Note: I’m not sure if this is the correct Pitcher. It was listed in an August 2008 advertisement as “Tumbler Bouquet and Pitcher Set” but it is the only one I could find.
Keep in mind that not all of these products are offered anymore. And many of them were offered in different color combinations, depending on your location and season.
None of Tupperware’s children’s products contain BPA.
Tupperware’s microwave products are supposed to be heated on medium microwave heat, not high. This is why they won’t replace products from microwave damage. Plus, when you use high heat, the chemicals in the plastic can migrate to your food. Don’t be lazy – change the heat setting before nuking Tupperware!
Hopefully this helps. If you do have any other questions about Tupperware and BPA, please ask me, or even better, Contact Tupperware!
Also, why don’t you Contact Tupperware and tell them you don’t want BPA in Tupperware products and that you would be more likely to buy it if you knew it was BPA free (if that’s the case anyway). Maybe mention to actually make their products BPA free, and not just TELL US they’re BPA free (!SIGG!). We are consumers, hear us roar!
