Food contact materials represent a possible source of contamination of the packaged products, through monomers or additives that can migrate from the packaging, especially the plastic ones, into the product. This type of contamination is an important problem related to the safety of food products, carrying out a lot of research in this regard. These chemical contaminants include Bisphenol A, with the highest volume produced worldwide, which is used as a plasticizer or intermediate product in obtaining polymeric materials, especially in polycarbonate material, but also in obtaining epoxy resins used for inner surface coatings of cans. The release of this compound is influenced by certain factors, among which the most important are the following: temperature, contact time and light exposure. The aim of this research article is to determine the levels of bisphenol A in different packed food and to verify compliance with the limit established by the legislation in force.
