Nor did I. But FAAN seemed very interested in Campbell's and asked me several questions. I could be wrong, but it seemed to me that were not surprised. They are helping me expedite laboratory testing.

No reason to be sheepish. I mean, just like other posters have stated, who would have guessed . . .

Please keep us posted on the lab testing results. My PA son eats campbells soups often. Chicken with rice, chicken noodle o's, chicken and stars, chicken noodle and his favorite, potato soup. I cook with cream of mushroom often. He's never seemed to have any reaction. I recently went on their website and found information about allergens and they seemed to be on top of things just looking at that. It's hard to know who to trust anymore! Please keep us posted.

So sorry, Gail. I hope things are better soon!!
In August I contacted Market Day for their Peanut Free list. I noticed that none of the Campbell's products were listed. I asked about it and the representative stated that Market Day does not feel that Campbells are a "safe enough company" to recommend to people with peanut allergies.

I've always avoided Campbell's myself because I can't tolerate all the msg they put in their soup.

Gail W,
I'm sorry that Mariah went through this...hope she is doing better.
Thank you for your perseverence in following up by sending it to the lab for testing.
It's disturbing to hear that others also seem to have problems with Campbell's...

Gail W., I'm so sorry to hear that Mariah had a reaction. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] But glad to hear that she's doing okay.
Canadian specific, I've never had a problem with Campbell's soups; although would say that we don't eat them a lot and out of the two kids, it would be my non-PA daughter that does eat them more.
SO glad that you're following up with FAAN and having the product sent for testing - something I think a LOT of us forget to do or just leave be after our child has had a reaction.
Anyway, please keep us posted.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I think it is wonderful that FAAN does this for us. I'm eager for the results.

Hi All,
Just to share.
I was just now starting to make chicken pot pie.
I had made this for the first time about a week ago using Campbell's cream of chicken. I was telling my PA daughter that I was trying a new recipe for the gravy because I did not have any cream of chicken soup.
She then told me that when she ate the pie last time her mouth got itchy but it stopped when she drank water.
Then she reminded me that a while ago I made gravy out of Campbell's cream of celery soup and the same thing happened.
I'm so mad!
As far as we know she is only PA.
She did say that Campbell's tomato and chicken noodle soup were ok although she doesn't really like the chicken pieces in the soup.

I've never had a problem with Campbell's soup either... though I am also in Canada so maybe our soup is manufactured in a Canadian facility?
Hope you get some answers about what happened.

Thank you everyone for your kind responses.
Mariah regularly has Campbell's chicken noodle soup, but this was the first time she'd tried the cream of potato soup. Either she has developed a new allergy (perhaps soy?) or there was cross contamination.
Part of my delay in sharing details is because my husband and I were not completely in agreement on what to do. I was ready to give the epi, and he wanted to see if she responded to benadryl.
The short answer is that no, we did not give her the epi-pen. My DH and I agree that had he not been home when this happened, that I would have given the epi-pen and called 911. But he was home and he's a physician . . . and he kept a very close eye on her. Her symptoms, in fact, resolved with benedryl.
It's uncomfortable to have not been in agreement with DH. <> We are usually very much in agreement. The outcome was good. That's really all I can say here on the subject.
FAAN told me to put the can in a ziplock bag and put it in the freezer. They will "meet" and decide whether or not to send the can in to testing. She indicated that she thought that they would probably want me to send it in, but that they will instruct me how to do that this week after they "meet". The testing is done at a laboratory at the University of Nebraska, and FAAN sets it up.
FAAN also instructed me on how to report it to the FDA, which I did on Friday.
So I'll wait and see what FAAN tells me what to do next.
Thanks again for all your good wishes. Mariah is fine, though a little scared. Me too. It's been 7 years since she had a reaction from ingestion. Who would have guessed it would be from canned potato soup.
I promise to keep posting updates.
