Dear Campbell's

I am one of many people with a potentially lethal allergy to a common ingredient that is not one of the "big eight" allergens as defined by the FDA. Often, the ingredient I am allergic to (peppers) isn't listed in product ingredients lists at all, but is lumped under the ambiguous, aggregate term "spice". As you can imagine, this makes it particularly difficult to know what foods are safe for me to eat. I am writing to you to request that you consider disclosing the full ingredients of your products on the label, in order to help those many people with non-standard, life-threatening allergies shop safely.

Thanks for your consideration,



Dear Ms. Palmer,

Thank you for contacting us about our Campbell's soup products.

Unfortunately, we're not able to supply you with a definitive list of products that do not contain peppers in natural flavorings at this time.

Product recipes change frequently and ingredients are periodically added and replaced. This makes it difficult to maintain an updated list of products that either contain or lack a particular ingredient. If you have questions about a specific product, please refer to the ingredient statement on the package for the most current information.

Thank you for visiting the Campbell Soup Company website.

Hi, I would be glad to reference the ingredients labels on your products if you would so kindly explicitly list all the ingredients ON said label, which was my initial request.

Don't you love those circular conversations? Written by robots, no doubt. Unfortunately, I don't think they will ever put all the ingredients on the label, you might be an industrial spy trying to recreate Campbell's soup in your basement....

Hope you're feeling better.
