Hi Stacy,

I own this processor, and am also interested in whether it contains BPA, so I sent an e-mail to Cuisinart. This is the first line of the reply I got:

"Thank you for your inquiry. Lexan is the type of plastics used for Food Processors. The plastics are none [sic] BPA free."

I am guessing that this means it contains BPA.

Mine arrived from Amazon the second week of December 2012 and it says "BPA Free" on the outside of the box. I guess they are shipping new-stock now.

The thing is, even if a product is BPA-free, doesn't mean it's safe. They often replace BPA with BPS, which is worse. Sad but true, there is no "precautionary principle" when it comes to chemicals in our products.

I just bought a new food processor and they claim the parts are BPA free, but did not say what type of plastic the new ones are made of. Regardless, try not to put hot foods in them, as that's usually what worsens the migration of plastic outgassing.
