Ah that sucks I eat Brunswick sardines almost every day.
Thank you for allowing us the opportunity to respond to your concerns regarding our Brunswick Sardines in Spring Water.
No, it does not as the can is made of aluminum, only when the product is canned in a steel metal container a anamel coating is apply inside the can.

damn, looks like you just can't escape it! However for those of you living in the UK check out Waitrose's fish bar: sometimes they sell four large sardines for less than a pound!
Imported cans (any metal) and steel cans may still have BPA based liners.
Salmon cans are mostly made with a PET based laminated coating (which has no BPA).
I don't know about their BPA status but Trader Joe's has canned sardines that are good and are packed in water rather than oil, so no worries about bad seed oils or anything. I eat a few cans a week.

Vital Choice sells Portuguese sardines packed in organic EVO and packed in BPA free "tins" at 24 for $90. They are a little pricey but their BPA free tins also hold a bit more than a normal sized sardine tin so you get a bit more bang for your buck. I also remember reading that Vital Choice claims their EVO brand tests out slightly better than their spring water brand. I think they said it had something to do with the EVO protecting the oils in the fish from oxidation and leaching (all sardines are cooked in the can after packing).
The can does not have a liner, so I presume BPA free.
If I could find fresh sardines, I'd buy some but in the US it's not easy. Even Whole Foods does not usually carry them
Plancheta of sardines, yum!! I wish!!
