As part of an effort to eliminate potentially toxic BPA from thermally printed receipts, Appvion has introduced a new paper that uses Vitamin C instead of BPA.  The new Appveon paper is yellow so it should be relatively easy to tell when it is being used.

Unfortunately, this paper is 10-20% more expensive than current paper, which may limit its adoption in the absence of government regulation requiring its use.
