ISO chopped/diced tomatoes NOT in cans

hi hounds,

i've got a dilemma. i used to regularly buy pomi chopped tomatoes. around this time last year, they went out of stock (see this thread: they came back in stock for a while; i stocked up. they are out of stock again.

pomi in canada is distributed by molisana. i called molisana's HQ and they don't even know when the pomi chopped tomatoes are coming back. apparently, there is a problem in italy with the packaging. this seems odd to me since the pomi strained products are fine. i even asked molisana to let me buy any remaining cartons of pomi chopped tomatoes from their warehouse! molisana has advised me to call every month to find out what's going on ...maybe they'll have a positive update for me one of these months?

fwiw, pomi is owned by an italian company called boschi. i don't write or speak italian and therefore can't contact boschi ... otherwise, trust me, i would!

in the meantime, i need to find a substitute ... but i want to AVOID chopped/diced tomatoes in cans (trying to stay away from BPA). does anyone know of any product that fits the bill?
