Large BPA-free dog food storage containers?

I have been searching online and I have been having a difficult finding ones that are large enough and BPA-free. 

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Large BPA-free dog food storage containers?

  • I hope you get some responses. I just bought a container from Petsmart. Doesn't say BPA free, but I keep the food in the bag inside the container.

    Are newer ones still made with BPA? Or do I have to worry now?

  • I am not sure if the newer ones are made with BPA or not. Huh?  I just feel safer if the package says "bpa-free."

  • You could do the Gamma Vittles Vault. I believe they come in a variety of sizes.

    The Vittles Vault is manufactured from FDA approved high-density polyethylene (HDPE), which is used throughout the ?human? food industry. The gaskets are made from FDA grade styrene butadiene rubber (SBR), and are lightly lubricated with an FDA grade silicone.

    Found online regarding the safety of plastics and BPA:

    If you want a plastic bottle, the safest bottles to use are made of high-density polyethylene, or HDPE (identified by the number 2 in the recycling triangle symbol on the bottom), low-density polyethylene, or LDPE (#4) or polypropylene (#5).

    Awesome. Thanks.  It is backordered, but that would fit in my pantry.

    I don't know if any of the TX locations are close to you, but they may have it in stock in the store.  I just saw them in the store near me last week. 

    Sneak attack!
