The study, which appeared this week in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives, concluded that such packaging is the major source of human exposure to BPA and other endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) such as DEHP (bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate).
Scientists also noted that once participants returned to their regular diets, BPA levels returned to normal.
Trade body NAMPA (North American Metal Packaging Alliance) dismissed the research, saying its most significant finding was it provided evidence of how quickly humans metabolize and excrete BPA.
