Gail, sorry I missed this. I'm glad she is ok.
Remember, even if FAAN doesn't want you to send it in, you can do it on your own. I think I still have all the info from when I sent a product in for testing. I think I'd do it just for peace of mind.

UHHHHHHHHH!! ! ! !
I just got off the phone with the lab in Nebraska. The can is 'compromised' because I threw it in the garbage. Even though we have a nut-free house, they cannot accept it. <>
This is very frustrating.
I'm going to the grocery store that I bought the soup and see if I can find another can from the same lot.

Sheesh you'd think Campbells themselves would want to know....... I guess that is a pipe dream.
Glad your daughter is OK.

For those who have had reactions to Campbell's soups - are they the red/white condensed soups or the larger, fancy don't-dilute ones? Could there be a difference in the ingredients?

Gail,
I'm sorry. That is frustrating! I hope you can find another from the same lot. Good luck.

That is just so frustrating. I guess I can understand their logic, but still...
I know you want answers, as do the rest of us. I'll be watching this thread closely.

Can FAAN request an unopened can from the same lot from Cambells to send for testing? I would hope that Cambells would be proactive and be checking this out by testing the soup from that lot as well as others. Did you get any response from Cambells?

If that lot is already on store shelves, it might be possible to contact members who are in your geographical area and have them look for a sample for you.
(Just thinking about how to get you another can if they prove to be already gone at your local store.)

I got another can from the same lot. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] I sent the original opened can that Mariah ate from plus the new unopened can to the lab. They wanted both so that they could compare lot numbers. Phew. . . They will get it Wednesday. I'll let you know what I find out.
Thanks everyone.
Mental note to self: If Mariah has another reaction, save the food for testing. [i]Don't throw it out in the trash can![/i]
