A survey at the European level was initiated on the quantification of bisphenol-A-diglycidyl ether (BADGE) in canned fish in oil in order to assess the exposure of BADGE at the European level. A total of 379 canned fish samples were collected from all 15 member states and Switzerland and analysed for BADGE in fish. The purpose of this investigation was to analyse a large number of samples whatever the nature of the source of BADGE. The scope of this study was to cover all European countries and their representative canned fish products. The analysis of the fish showed that about 3% of the samples contained BADGE at a level superior to to 1 mg per kg. This quantification of BADGE in fish is currently being combined with a European intake study to provide data on consumer exposure.
