I heard back from the FDA yesterday. She took a report and said it is up to her supervisor whether it gets investigated or not. They wanted information off the can, which I did not have, since Campbells required me to send them the can when it was tested.

I realize this thread is 5 years old now but I wanted to comment in case any others like me are still finding this as a source. I found alot of threads like this one dated from about 2003 to 2007 but I can't find any recent ones. The FAAN has even given Campbell's an award. Which should mean that their soup is safe to eat for us with allegies. I'm here to say that STILL not the case.
I'm 35 and have had peanut allergies my whole life I'm well aware through both testing and trail and error what things I'm allergic to and what degrees of severity each reaction will be. I get anaphylaxis from Peanuts, green beans and peas. I get a less severe mumps, itching, shortness of breath from Tree nuts and chick peas and a mild reaction to coconut but I am not allegic to things cooked in peanut oil (as lond as the oil is refined and not pressed/"gourmet").
Everytime I have a dish that contains cream of mushroom soup I have a reaction that falls into that second category of reactions (mumps,etc). Which means no caserole for me. I'm not allergic to mushrooms, I eat them regularly on pizza and fried at the BBQ joint. I'm also not allergic to soy or dairy or any other thing I haven't listed. For a long time I though I just hated soup but I've realized that it's about a 50/50 shot that I'll have a reaction to anything but Chicken Noodle. I've had reactions to cream of mushroom this year (2011) so campbell's labeling, cross contamination or/and allergen warnings are still not effective as of now.I hope this helps others, you're not crazy it really IS the soup!
