Hello all! Instead of waiting for Vitamix to develop a non-BPA container, I bit the bullet and purchased the Waring CAC90 container (as recommended by Trayd76 below). And yes! It works perfectly on my Vitamix 5200!!! Yay!
The CAC90 is expensive, but my gosh, it's built like a tank...solid stainless steel...and will last a lifetime (or longer)! There's an added plus too...the pouring spout doesn't drip at all! The stock Vitamix plastic container always dripped making a mess.
Sure...I wish it was glass so I could see and adjust the ingredients, but that's a nit. Once you make a few recipes, you know what's needed. It's so nice pouring blended veggies from a solid metal container rather than plastic.
Here's where I purchased the CAC90...the cheapest online price I found:

@Rendirae @Trayd76 Yes! The Waring CAC90 container works on the VItamix base (I have a 5200). See my April 27th (post near the top of this comment list) for details. Pricey, but worth it!

@Trayd76 @Thomas Fleming Thanks so much...great info! Let me know if you need a buyer for the extra Waring container!

@Trayd76 Cool. Does the Waring work as well as the Vitamix? I.e., do the blades perform the same?
Mother Jones just published an excellent article that describes testing whereby Tritan "BPA-Free" plastics leach estrogenic compounds, In fact, the main ingredient, TPP, is even MORE estrogenic than BPA. Chalk to up to marketing, biased-science and high-paid lawyers for the public not knowing.

I just sent an e-mail to Vitamix with the above link asking for a no-plastic container! Everyone...please do the same!
Also...I tried signing the petition, but it always resulted in an error. Is it still active? I'll try again later.
Keep bugging Vitamix!
