BPA: Are Your Dollar Bills Contaminated?

From CBS News:

Potentially toxic BPA (bisphenol A) has been found on dollar bills in a recent investigation conducted by the Washington Toxics Coalition in Seattle.

All but one of the 22 bills tested were contaminated with the pollutant.

The bills were likely contaminated due to their proximity to receipts, many of which have a thermal ink coating with BPA in it.
