Campbell's: It's time to can BPA
A recently released report found 67% of nearly 200 food cans sampled tested positive for bisphenol A (BPA), a hormone disrupting chemical linked to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, and type-2 diabetes. Tell Campbell’s: It’s time to can BPA.
Four years ago, Campbell’s pledged to reduce their use of BPA in canned food, yet a new report, Buyer Beware: Toxic BPA and regrettable substitutes found in the linings of canned food found that most of their cans sampled – and all of their soup cans sampled – still tested positive for this harmful chemical. Meanwhile, some other leading brands have already eliminated BPA from their food can linings.
Studies have shown this chemical can migrate out of cans, get into the food our families eat, and make its way into our bodies.
When they learned about the report, Campbell’s announcedthey are eliminating BPA in North American cans by mid- 2017. Help ensure this is not another empty promise - tellCampbell’s Soup it is time to follow through on their commitment.
