Consumer Reports has found that major canned food companies including Campbell’s Soup are using cans that leach Bisphenol A (BPA) into food.
BPA is linked to many health risks including reproductive abnormalities, neurological effects, heightened risk of breast and prostate cancers, diabetes, heart disease and other serious health problems.
Children are particularly sensitive to the toxic chemical and the testing revealed that just one or a few servings of canned food would exceed scientific limits for daily exposure.
Even foods labeled “organic” and “BPA-free” were contaminated.
Campbell’s could become an industry leader and commit to stop using BPA and stop poisoning their customers, but so far they haven’t. Many large companies including Target, Wal-Mart, Nalgene, Babies R Us and others have already committed to ending their use of BPA.
Why is Campbell’s still putting toxins in its soup?
Send a letter to executives Campbell’s Soup asking them to take proactive action and commit to phasing out their use of BPA immediately.

Please stop poisoning my food.
I am sending this letter today via change.org because I am shocked to learn that your products contain Bisphenol A (BPA).
BPA is linked to many health risks including including reproductive abnormalities, neurological effects, heightened risk of breast and prostate cancers, diabetes, heart disease and other serious health problems.
Many companies, including Wal-Mart, Target, Nalgene and Camelbak have already committed to eliminating the use of BPA in their products.
You should do the same immediately.
Your motto is “nourishing people's lives everywhere, every day.” Please stand by that and stop using BPA.
Even one more day of putting toxic chemicals in the foods we eat is one day too many.
Please, make an immediate commitment to end the use of BPA in all of your products, or switch to alternative packaging, as quickly as possible.
I look forward to your prompt response.
