Polycarbonate Products
April 30, 2008

The Container Store is aware of reported scientific evaluations and media attention regarding the potential hazards of polycarbonate plastics, which are classified under the plastic recycling code #7. Although there are items in our assortment which are marked with the #7 recycling code, not all of the items that fall under this code are made of polycarbonate and contain an industrial chemical called Bisphenol-A (BPA).

We understand your concerns on the subject, and the health of our customers is very important to us. So, please know that each and every product we carry at The Container Store meets all requirements set out by government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

All of our polycarbonate food storage products are clearly noted as such on their product page. If it is not marked as polycarbonate on the product page, it is BPA-free.
