Interesting! I didn't notice this until you posted and I haven't gotten to read up on it yet.
DH gets C&EN, which is trade publication for chemists/chemical engineers. THey had an article in this month about the struggle to find a suitable replacement, and how difficult it is proving to be.
DH has talked to a few folks at conferences studying BPS (sometimes used as a replacement for BPA), and they are saying their research is indicating that may be even worse than BPA based on mouse models.
They did point out in C&EN that whatever replacements come onto the market will likely be scrutinized, so let's hope they find some suitable materials that don't end up problematic down the road.
I can't post the C&EN piece as you need a log in for now, but I think in a few weeks I should be able to link once the article isn't current.
eta: I did see recently that WFs has organic beans in tetrapacks now.
