When it comes to canned soup, surely Campbell will immediately come into mind. But that was before the revelation that the canned soup products contained higher than average bisphenol A (BPA) last year. In case you don’t know, BPA is associated with cancer which have more or less rendered fear for people who were fond of the canned soup line.
However, it seems that Campbell is on the verge of shooting down such fear with reports that they are about to phase out the BPA lined cans although it would have been more convincing if they had mentioned what alternative form of packaging they were going to use. Biodegradable packaging perhaps?
Exposure to BPA, is a well-documented health issue. BPA, a material used to make the epoxy-resin linings of metal food cans for all sorts of products, has been linked in lab studies to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, early puberty in girls, type-2 diabetes, obesity, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and more.
