Campbell’s likes to present itself as a health-conscious, family-friendly product. But its soup cans are another story: Campbell’s uses a chemical linked to a host of health problems, including behavioral disorders, obesity, infertility, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.
Campbell’s soup cans are made with a chemical called bisphenol-A, or BPA — and because the chemical is in the cans, it can easily leach into the soup. Perhaps most insidiously of all, studies show that children face the worst health risks associated with BPA — no wonder 11 states have banned the use of BPA in children’s products like baby bottles and sippy cups.
Healthy Child, Healthy World is a non-profit that empowers parents to protect their children from harmful chemicals. The folks there were appalled to learn that Campbell’s makes its cans with BPA, so they started a petition on Change.org demanding that Campbell’s stop using BPA. Please sign the petition today.
Other major manufacturers like Hain Celestial, H.J. Heinz, and ConAgra — which owns brands such as Chef Boyardee, Hunt’s, and Healthy Choice — have started using BPA-free can linings for certain products and are committed to removing the chemical from all packaging.
However, Campbell’s has refused to make any such commitments. The company still clings to the argument that BPA is safe — an argument that has been proven wrong by hundreds of scientists and dozens of studies.
Campbell’s executives need to know that consumers care deeply about this issue and expect them to take action. Placing tremendous public pressure on Campbell’s will also show other companies that it’s in everyone’s best interest to phase out BPA for good.

Thanks for being a change-maker,
