Stop poisoning people with your soup!

Progresso soup cans are lined with bisphenol A (BPA), a hormone-disrupting chemical that studies show is linked with cancer, obesity, heart disease, and other life-threatening diseases.

A recent study conducted by researchers at Harvard tested individuals who ate Progresso Soup. Levels of BPA spiked in their blood samples.

This poison is being consumed by our children! It is time for Progresso to step up and follow the lead of other industry leaders like Campbell's soup and remove BPA from their cans.

After all it should not be difficult for Progresso to find an alternative BPA-free can since their sister brand from General Mills, Glen Muir Organics, already removed BPA from their cans.

No one should be subjected to poison in their soup. 

Please join me in telling Progresso to take BPA out of soup!

      I would rather pay extra for BPA free, my only recourse is to discontinue purchasing Progresso soups, which we really enjoy. Please go BPA free.

      During the winter months I buy about 5 cans of soup per week and at least 3 cans a week other months. I often buy Progresso soup, but was not aware of the BPA. I wont be purchasing it again until this is removed!
