Please remember to check the package every time, because product recipes change frequently and ingredients are periodically added and replaced.

How do you determine serving sizes?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) determines serving sizes, which we are required to list on our packages. Of special note is the 1/2-cup serving size for condensed soup. This is the “as packaged” serving size, which translates to 1 cup as prepared. All of our product labels include the nutrient information for a single serving.

What are you doing to reduce the sodium content in your products?

One way we reduced sodium across our portfolio is by using alternative ingredients such as potassium salt. Potassium salt can replace a portion of the sodium, provide a savory flavor to foods and help consumers incorporate more of this essential mineral into their diet. Eating foods with potassium can help maintain a healthy blood pressure, which contributes to heart health. Potassium can help blunt the effects of sodium on blood pressure. Current Dietary Guidelines recommend that adults eat at least 4,700 mg of potassium and no more than 2,300 mg of sodium daily. If you want to reduce the amount of sodium in your diet, we offer more than 500 products across our Snacks and Meals & Beverages divisions that meet FDA’s strict criteria for being called “healthy,” which includes a limit on sodium per serving. In our Meals & Beverages division, we offer lower sodium varieties of Campbell’s soup, Swanson stock and broth, and V8 beverages to help consumers meet their unique dietary needs. Our Snacks division also offers consumers lower sodium options with products like Cape Cod Lightly Salted chips, Kettle Brand Unsalted Chips, Snyder’s of Hanover Unsalted Mini Pretzels, Emerald Natural Almonds and Walnuts, and more. To learn more about how we view sodium in our products, review our Position on Sodium.

What is Campbell’s position on trans fatty acids in food products?

We believe that a healthful diet is based on both variety and moderation, and that our diverse product line — including soups, broths, gravies, sauces, juice beverages, canned pastas, and baked goods — can be enjoyed as part of an overall balanced plan. We follow all government regulations regarding product labeling, including the new requirements and schedules that have been issued by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) concerning trans fat.

Ingredient

GMO – Are foods made with GMO ingredients safe?

We are comfortable using these genetically modified crops because scientists and the FDA, who have been studying genetic engineering for many years, agree that food ingredients made with these methods are safe and aren’t different from other ingredients. Learn more. We know many of you want to know which ingredients we use are derived from these crops. For a comprehensive list of ingredients that we use that may be derived from crops grown from genetically engineered seeds, please visit WIMF.com. These ingredients are NOT used in all products.  

GMO – What are GMOs?

GMO is short for “genetically modified organisms.” It is sometimes called genetic engineering or bioengineering and refers to a process where desirable traits or characteristics are introduced into an organism.

GMO – What is Campbell position on labeling for foods that contain GMOs?

Campbell has chosen to communicate the presence of GMOs by printing the disclosure statement on the labels of its U.S. products.

GMO – Why do we use GMOs?

In America many farmers who grow canola, corn, soybean and sugar beet choose to use genetically modified seeds and have done so for nearly twenty years because it reduces costs and improves yields. More than 90% of these four crops in America are currently grown using genetically modified seeds. These crops are used to make a wide range of different ingredients that are used in foods we eat every day, ranging from vegetable oils to sugar.

HFCS – Are you going to stop using High Fructose Corn Syrup?

Many people have told us they would prefer to avoid high fructose corn syrup, which is why we will continue to move away from using it in new products we launch and explore opportunities to remove it from certain existing products. More than 80% of the products we offer for retail sale in the United States do not contain high fructose corn syrup including Campbell’s Sauces, Campbell’s Homestyle soup, Swanson broth, Prego Italian sauces and Slow Kettle Style soups.

HFCS – How does Campbell label High Fructose Corn Syrup?

If High fructose corn syrup is used in a product, we will list it in our product ingredient statement.

HFCS – What is High Fructose Corn Syrup or HFCS?

High Fructose Corn Syrup or HFCS is a liquid sweetener. High fructose corn syrup contains the same number of calories as table sugar and has been widely used in the food industry for more than fifty years.

HFCS – Why do you use HFCS in your products?

Although we have significantly reduced our use of the ingredient in recent years, we do use high fructose corn syrup when it is right for the recipe, mostly to help deliver a smoother texture than other sugars can provide, or to keep the cost of a product affordable.

MSG – Do you make any soups, sauces or broths that don’t contain added MSG?

For people looking to avoid MSG, we make nearly 600 different product varieties that don’t contain added MSG. These include soups, broths, salsas, cooking sauces, canned pastas and others in our Meals & Beverages portfolio and crackers, chips, pretzels, popcorn, nuts, and other savory snacks in our Snacks portfolio.

MSG – How do I know if my Campbell product contains MSG?

If a Campbell product contains monosodium glutamate (MSG), the ingredient will be listed in our product ingredient statement.

MSG – How would I know if MSG is added to this product?

We follow all government regulations regarding the labeling of our products. In the case of MSG, the term Monosodium Glutamate will be clearly listed in the ingredient statement.

MSG – What is MSG?

Monosodium glutamate (MSG) is the sodium salt of a common amino acid. MSG occurs naturally in many foods, such as tomatoes and cheeses. It has been used safely as a seasoning in cooking for more than 100 years. It adds a savory or umami flavor and when used in conjunction with salt it creates a clean savory taste.

MSG – Why use MSG in products?

MSG is lower in sodium compared with table salt (sodium chloride). It contains only 13% sodium compared to 39% sodium in table salt. This means a small amount of MSG can be used instead of salt to create an appealing savory flavor. This is particularly useful when making great tasting foods which have reduced sodium and fat.

What is hydrolyzed vegetable protein?

Hydrolyzed plant or vegetable proteins have naturally occurring glutamate. These flavor-enhancing proteins are derived from corn, wheat, soybeans, or other vegetables.  During preparation, the proteins are completely broken down into amino acids, which are an essential part of our diets. We list hydrolyzed plant proteins by their common names in the ingredient statements on our product labels. We do not include them under the broader listings of “spices” or “natural flavors.” We recommend that consumers always evaluate a product based on the ingredient listing on its label.

Allergen

Can you provide me with allergen information for Campbell products?

We are committed to providing accurate and reliable ingredient statements upon which you can make your purchasing decisions. As ingredients in our products may change, we recommend that you check the label on our products for the most current and accurate ingredient and nutritional information.  We follow all government regulation related to allergen labeling.

How does Campbell label dairy, casein, and whey ingredients?

We follow all government regulations regarding product labeling. When dairy products, including milk, butter, casein, whey and cheese, are present in any quantity, they will always be listed in our product ingredient statement.  We recommend that consumers evaluate each product based on its ingredient statement. To prevent possible cross-contact between products, we use an extensive and effective sanitation procedure between processing operations.

How does Campbell label soy protein ingredients?

We follow all government regulations regarding product labeling. When soy, soy lecithin, or soy proteins are present in any quantity, they will always be listed in our product ingredient statement.  We recommend that consumers evaluate each product based on its ingredient statement. To prevent possible cross-contact between products, we use an extensive and effective sanitation procedure between processing operations.

How does Campbell label the top eight allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, dairy, eggs, fish, wheat, soy, and shellfish)?

We follow all government regulations regarding product labeling. When any of these top eight allergens is present in any quantity, it will always be listed in our product ingredient statement.  We recommend that consumers evaluate each product based on its ingredient statement. To prevent possible cross-contact between products, we use an extensive and effective sanitation procedure between processing operations.

Gluten

Do you have any gluten-free products?

Campbell offers nearly 100 different products across our portfolio that are gluten-free. These include Campbell’s Tomato juice and a wide variety of our Pace salsas, Prego Italian sauces, Swanson broths and stocks, and V8 juices. We have a strict two-step process for validating a product as gluten-free and ensuring that it meets FDA’s criteria for the claim. First, we verify all the ingredients are gluten-free, then we analyze the finished product to make sure it meets all relevant requirements. In addition, many of our products are made without gluten-containing ingredients but are manufactured on shared equipment that have not been tested for the presence of gluten. These products may be suitable for people looking to reduce gluten but not for those who may have celiac disease. These products can be identified by the lack of gluten-containing ingredients on the label, even though the labels does not make a gluten-free claim. Please check our lists below. Every ingredient in every product on this list has been verified gluten-free. • Campbell US Gluten-Free List • Pepperidge Farm Farmhouse Thin & Crispy Cookies

• Wolfgang Puck US Gluten-Free List • Wolfgang Puck Canadian Gluten-Free List

Do you have any gluten-free soups?

Please check our lists below. Visit often for the most up-to-date gluten-free list. Every ingredient in every product on this list has been verified gluten-free. • Campbell US Gluten-Free List • Wolfgang Puck US Gluten-Free List • Wolfgang Puck Canadian Gluten-Free List

What process does Campbell use to ensure products are gluten-free?

We have a strict two-step process for validating a product as gluten-free and ensuring that it meets FDA’s criteria for the claim. First, we verify all the ingredients are gluten-free, then we analyze the finished product to make sure it meets all relevant requirements. In addition, many of our products are made without gluten-containing ingredients but are manufactured on shared equipment that have not been tested for the presence of gluten. These products may be suitable for people looking to reduce gluten but not for those who may have celiac disease. These products can be identified by the lack of gluten-containing ingredients on the label, even though the labels does not make a gluten-free claim.

Why are only some of Campbell products gluten-free?

Some of our recipes require food starches, and others do not. However, many of our products are made without gluten-containing ingredients but are manufactured on shared equipment that have not been tested for the presence of gluten. These products may be suitable for people looking to reduce gluten but not for those who may have celiac disease. These products can be identified by the lack of gluten-containing ingredients on the label, even though the labels does not make a gluten-free claim.

Packaging

BPA – Does the packaging of your food contain BPA?

Steel cans are among the safest, most convenient, affordable and environmentally sustainable forms of packaging in the world. Our cans are coated on the inside with a thin layer of plastic to separate the food from the metal. This helps keep the food safe and preserves its nutritional value. This lining contains a very small amount of a substance called bisphenol A or BPA. Extensive studies around the world have found that BPA is safe to use in packaging. However, we understand that some consumers would like to avoid BPA. In the U.S. and Canada, we began to ship cans which have linings made from acrylic or polyester materials in March 2016, and today we are proud to say all of our soups are now being packaged in non-BPA lined cans. We are in transition to introducing non-BPA coatings to V8 beverage cans, microwaveable bowls and screw-top lids on glass jars. We also make a wide range of products in pouches and cartons that don’t use BPA. For example Campbell’s Organic soup, Swanson broth and Campbell’s sauces.

How do I read the codes on my Campbell product?

The date code is a series of letters and numbers that tell you how long the product will maintain its top quality and flavor. The letters represent the first three letters of a month (such as Mar for March or Nov for November). The numbers after that tell you the day of the month, followed by the year. For example, the code could read Jun 13 2014. This means for optimal flavor, texture, and quality, you should use the product by June 13, 2014.

How do I remove the label from the can?

Simply soak the can in warm, soapy water for 20 minutes, and the label should peel away easily.

How does Campbell support recycling and/or biodegradable materials?

Like you, we know that the small choices we make, such as the packaging we use, can make a big difference over time. Across our brands, we are working to make our packaging more sustainable. For example, beginning in Fall 2019, V8 Fusion and V8 Blends moved from shrink-wrapped labels to wrap labels, which can easily be removed in the recycling process so the plastic bottle itself can now be recycled with ease. We also cut packaging waste for our Kettle Brand chip bags by 43 percent! This change will keep 2 million pounds of plastic out of landfills each year. To help our consumers better understand how to properly dispose of and recycle our packaging, we are beginning to add the How2Recycle label to many of our brands. Of course, recycling is subject to local guidelines, so we suggest you check your town’s rules to confirm what materials are recyclable in your area.

How long can I keep my unopened product in my pantry?

That varies based on the product and the storage conditions. To ensure the best flavor, texture, and overall quality, we recommend using the product before its “Best Used By Date,” printed on each container. However, if the product is not stored properly, the shelf life will be shortened. To maximize the shelf life, we recommend that you store non-refrigerated items in a cool, dry place where temperatures rarely exceed 70° F, and that refrigerated products be kept in your refrigerator at approximately 40° F.

What does the “Best Used By” date mean?

This date indicates the product’s expected shelf life. We recommend using the product before this date to ensure the best flavor, texture, and overall quality. Example:

Where can I find the “Best Used By” date on the product?

Depending on the product type, the “Best Used By” date is printed on the end of the can, on the lid and/or neck of the jar or bottle, or at the bottom of the back of the pouch.

Company History

How did SpaghettiOs pasta get it’s start?

Donald Goerke invented SpaghettiOs pasta in 1965. Goerke, who worked with Campbell’s Franco-American brand, had been challenged to create a pasta dish that kids could eat easily with a spoon. He tried all sorts of shapes before deciding on the O, and he soon became known as the “Daddy-O of SpaghettiOs.” The product was promoted with the catchy jingle, “The neat, round spaghetti you can eat with a spoon: Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs!” The kid-friendly pasta transitioned to the Campbell’s brand in 2004

How do you make your soup?

Great question! For many of our soups, it takes just four steps: 1. Prepping. We select and prepare the finest ingredients, such as washing, peeling, and dicing vegetables. 2. Mixing. We carefully mix ingredients, such as chicken stock, before adding them to the can. 3. Cooking. Ingredients are added in a particular order – for example, noodles first, then chicken, broth, and other ingredients – to create the best flavor. We seal the can and cook it at a temperature to make sure the product will remain safe under normal conditions at the grocery store and in your pantry. 4. Packaging. We label the finished soup can and box it up before sending it to your grocery store.

Where did the Labels for Education® program go?

During the past few years, we had been assessing the impact of these programs and through this, we saw that participation in Labels for Education declined considerably. Sadly, it was at the point where we had no choice but to make the very difficult decision to end the program. The Labels for Education program has officially ended, we want to thank all the schools and families that have made the program so special over the years.
