Statement: All PYREX plastic lids are BPA-free

    TORONTO, July 14 /CNW/ - All plastic lids manufactured for use with 
PYREX(R) glass bakeware, prepware and storage dishes are 100% free of
bisphenol A (BPA), it was announced by Rosemont, Illinois-based World Kitchen,
LLC, which is licensed by Corning Incorporated, Corning, New York, to
manufacture and distribute PYREX products in North America.
    All PYREX plastic lids are made from a proprietary elastomer compound
that is free of BPA, a chemical compound that was the subject of a recent risk
assessment by Health Canada.
    PYREX plastic lids are sold with a wide range of PYREX bakeware, prepware
and storage dishes, including measuring cups, mixing bowls, bakeware, Pyrex
Portables and a full line of PYREX storage units.

    Versatile PYREX glassware is an ideal medium in the kitchen. Non-porous,
it won't absorb food odors, food flavors or food stains. Non-reactive, it is
perfect for prepping and marinating foods in acid-infused tomato, lemon and
vinegar sauces, and then oven- or microwave-baking foods in the same PYREX
dish. Leftovers can then be stored in PYREX glassware, either in the
refrigerator or freezer.
