While I try to avoid food packaged in plastic, or to eat food from plastic, or to cook on non-stick coatings etc. I think if you are making the effort to limit exposure as much as possible, you will already be doing a good thing for your body. So the odd thing still stored in plastic might be hard to totally get rid of. If you are still concerned you can always take it out of the container it comes in and move it to a glass jar - just remember to keep it in a dark place.
And even if plastic is bpa free there are still other chemicals that are required to make plastic products.

Met my 2012 goals by losing 24 pounds.
2013 goals are to get fit and strong!
So what really matters is the time the product spends in a plastic container?
I mean, the leaking of stuff.., it takes time so as long as we try and move it to "safer" container, we should be alright, right?
