First time we've tried this product. She had about 4 or 5 spoonfuls and stated her throat was 'itchy'. Nasal congestion, wheezing, labored breathing.

She's fine now. I'll post more details later.

Reported it to Campbell's and FAAN.

I did a search on Campbell's soups here and I guess posters have received mixed responses from the company.

I'm sorry for your daughters reaction. I hope that she is feeling better. Does she have any other allergies besides pn / tn? any beans or veggies?

Wow Gail. I am glad she is OK. Odd Potato soup? I'll wait for you to post more for my
questions. Did you need epi pen? Sounds like you did. Wow. I'm glad she is OK and you were ON TOP of things.

I am glad she is okay.
(Wow, though-- what on earth???)
We stopped using Campbell's entirely when DH broke out in hives from chicken and wild rice soup.... [i]repeatedly[/i] [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img].... His only candidate FAs for that kind of reaction are walnuts and soy. Neither of which appeared on the label. (It almost had to be TN xc. The amount of soy to do that would have to be GROSS contamination.)
DD hasn't ever tried any canned soups.

I hope Mariah is OK!
About 6 months ago, I ate a Campbell's soup, don't remember what kind but it may have been Cream of Potato. My stomach sounded like a washing machine shortly after, which is a reaction clue for me.
I came here and did a search on Campbells, and decided from the posts I read, that it must have been all in my head. But I no longer buy Campbells because of this incident.
I am PA only.

She's allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. Some other environmental things too that wouldn't apply here.
I saved the can and will send it to a lab for ingredient analysis. FAAN is helping arrange this.

Forgot to include a 1/4 inch bump on her upper lip.

Several years ago, Campbell's had a cross contamination warning for cream of mushroom soup that may have contained shellfish.
I think they are a cross contamination risk.

Gail,
I'm so sorry she had to go through that! Glad to hear that she's O.K. though.
Maybe this will make their labeling or cross contamination precautions better though. We can only hope that something good comes out of it!

Ay yi yi - DS loves their Tomato and Chicken Noodle (what a slap in the face to this Jewish mother, LOL).
Do let us know what happens - this is really scary. I never considered them to be a risk for PA/TNA.

O.K., sheepishly adding...
I let my dd talk me into buying her the Campbell's Dora soup about a year ago. She tried it and was very blotchy on her cheeks and around her mouth after eating just a couple of spoonfuls. I took it away.
I wasn't sure if it was due to allergy or high salt content or what (you know, the wonderful "mystery reaction"...is it environmental....or what?!), but I did stop giving her Campbell's soup after that just to be safe. In your case it sounds like it was definitely the soup, and after reading all these responses, it wouldn't surprise me if dd's reaction was due to the soup too!
Dd is PA and TNA.
