The products that will be packaged in non-BPA lined cans include all varieties of Campbell’s soups and gravies, Swanson broth and SpaghettiOs pasta, Campbell said in a statement.
The company said it is on track to have 75 percent of its soup in non-BPA lined cans by December 2016 and is currently testing alternatives to BPA coatings used on other packaging, including aluminum cans used for V8beverages and metal screw top lids on glass jars.
Campbell said the company is on track to transition all products to a non-BPA solution by the middle of 2017.
