Progresso lines its soup cans with bisphenol A, or BPA. Scientists have long warned of BPA's link to cancer, but a new study has found that it's related to obesity and diabetes as well.

We all know that bisphenol A (BPA) is damaging. Everyone needs to stop using this crap!

The link went directly to the share page. I haven't eaten Progresso products since Trader Joe's opened close to us.

These companies care only about money.
Thank you for signing the petition "Progresso: Stop poisoning people with your soup!"

If Congress won't act, pressure the major companies one by one to voluntarily be socially responsible--alternate options equally cheap exist.

I understand how arduous it is to work outside the home and take care of a family.
Having said that, it is not difficult to open a can/carton (without preseratives) of broth, add some fresh or frozen vegetables, a few herbs and heat.

Why are working mothers, not having their children help in the kitchens? I'm not talking about making a pie from scratch.

thanks for posting - I stopped buying canned soup years ago for that very reason - I now make my own in batches and freeze portions for later use they're great for weekend lunches - far healthier and tastier too! - petition signed

Why would a legitimate company line cans of food with poison?

Boycott Progresso until they shape up. I like their tomato and lentils soups--bye, bye, good soup.

I called Progresso a few months ago re this very topic. They were a bit wishy-washy but did say they were trying to make a change....
