A brand new report found 67% of nearly 200 food cans from dozens of brands and retailers tested positive for the toxic chemical bisphenol A (BPA), a hormone disrupting chemical linked to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, and type-2 diabetes.
Kroger and Campbell’s Soup are food industry leaders who have the power and a moral responsibility to get toxic chemicals like BPA out of food packaging. Kroger is the largest supermarket chain in the United States, and Campbell’s is one of the most iconic food brands, sold in 120 countries around the world.
Both companies have pledged to reduce their use of BPA in food cans, yet a new report found that most of their cans sampled still tested positive for this harmful chemical. According to the report Buyer Beware: Toxic BPA and regrettable substitutes found in the linings of canned food, every single one of the Campbell’s Soup cans analyzed tested positive for BPA, and 62% of Kroger’s did as well! Meanwhile, some other leading brands have already eliminated BPA from their can linings.
Studies have shown this hormonally active chemical can migrate out of cans, get into the food our families eat, and make its way into our bodies, where it may be harmful to our health. BPA clearly has no place in canned foods we buy for our families!
Tell Kroger and Campbell’s Soup: it’s time to eliminate and safely substitute BPA in their food cans!
