corn (not the mini ones) in jars instead of cans?

I have now officially joined the "BPA-free packaging" club :-) and although I've found great options for canned beans (Eden) and tomatoes (Pomi), I've yet to find any brand that packages corn (regular,not creamed) in BPA-free cans. Even Eden uses BPA in their tomato-product cans although thankfully not their beans.

I've seen those little miniature corn ears packaged in glass jars, which would be ideal, but that's not what I'm looking for. I like to have canned corn on hand in the pantry at all times to be available for making chili whenever the mood strikes. Plus it is less expensive than frozen, of course.

I used to buy DelMonte's canned corn with no salt added but after seeing them come in as one of the worst offenders as far as BPA levels in their canned goods, I refuse to buy any canned DelMonte product ever again.

Anyone know any brands of corn packaged in glass jars instead of cans? Or should I just default to using frozen corn instead?
