The levels of bisphenol-F-diglycidyl-ether were quantified as part of a European survey on the migration of residues of resins into canned fish. The contents of BFDGE in cans, lids and fish collected from 15 European Member States and Switzerland were analysed in 382 samples. BFDGE was detected in 12% of the fish samples, 24% of the cans and 18% of the lids. Only 3% of the fish contained BFDGE in concentrations considerably above 1 mg/kg. In addition to the presented data, a correlation was made with the levels of BADGE (bisphenol-A-diglycidyl-ether) analysed in the same samples.
