Campbell's Soup and BPA

"Eww Eww Toxic"! That's the new jingle for Campbell's soup.  No more  "M'm M'm Good," we now think "Eww Eww Toxic" is more appropriate.

According to experts, Campbell's Soup Company still uses toxic Bisphenol A (BPA) in their canned goods, despite the fact that it's proven harmful. Let's not let the company that markets directly to kids with products like Dora the Explorer "Kidshape Soups" get away with ignoring parents. Especially when parents have questions about a toxic chemical linked to breast cancer, infertility, early onset puberty, ADHD and obesity.

Sign on now to MomsRising.org's open letter to Campbell's demanding a response! http://action.momsrising.org/sign/2011_BPA-Campbells1/?akid=2897.1887819.GwC586&rd=1&t=2

UPDATE:
Campbell’s Soup Company markets their products directly at parents and kids (complete with Toy Story characters in their soup), but it seems they can’t be bothered to respond to parents when they ask about toxic chemicals like Bisphenol A (BPA) in their packaging.

Momsrising members, along with the Breast Cancer Fund, wrote Campbell’s in April asking about their use of BPA in their packaging.  When Campbell's didn't reply, more letters were sent in. Still no public response to the questions. Their silence only means we need to get louder.

It's now time to double the number of signatures on the open letter to Campbell's demanding a response to one key question: What are you doing to phase out BPA in your cans and what safe alternative are you replacing it with? With more signatures, we hope to put Campbell's (and the media) on notice that we are not backing down.

Please join by signing the petition today: http://action.momsrising.org/go/1078akid=2897.1887819.GwC586&t=3
