Tell Kroger & Campbell's: It's time to can BPA!
Despite the consumer demand for products free of bisphenol A (BPA), a new report found that 67 percent of tested food cans from dozens of different brands and retailers tested positive for BPA -- a toxic chemical that has been linked to breast and prostate cancer, infertility, and type 2 diabetes. BPA may affect our health when it migrates from can linings into the food we eat and then into our bodies.
Kroger and Campbell's Soup are food industry leaders who have the power -- not to mention a responsibility to their customers -- to get toxic chemicals like BPA out of food packaging. Kroger is the largest supermarket chain in the country, and Campbell's is one of the most well-known and iconic food brands, sold in 120 countries around the world.
Despite pledging to reduce BPA in their products, these two companies are lagging behind, while other leading brands have already reduced or eliminated BPA in can linings. Kroger and Campbell's should protect their customers from BPA by removing it from their food packaging. Tell Kroger and Campbell's to join the movement and protect public health.
