NORTH FORK, CALIFORNIA -- On the day of March 28 2009 I made this soup for dinner for me, my friend, and my brother. And after my brother had finished his and I was on my last bite, my friend found a fly foot or wing in her soup. I went back to the bowl to see if I could find anything else and I found a fly wing.
I called the company and they said they couldn't do anything about it until Monday when we could talk to the cooks. But my friend and I feel really sick and have been throwing up parts of the fly, and I don't know should I call poison control or the health department.
SEFFNER, FLORIDA -- Do you know how many times through the years I've tossed a can of Campbells soup into the garbage after my mouth finds something unidentifiable in it??? This time it was a piece of silicone type, fatty looking, boogery looking thing I had to pull out of my mouth. This soup is not fit for a pig to eat! I really thought I had learned my lesson with this company the last time I ate this swill, but noooo. I had to buy another can, but I assure you, I would rather die than eat another can of CAMPBELLS SOUP!
Why hasn't the health department closed this company down for the protection of the public? I'll bet the CEO would not even eat his own company's soups pulled from random shelves for 6 months, but then again, who knows? Its obvious that they don't care about what its patrons put in their mouths. Why would they care about what goes into their own? Maybe they enjoy eating pig swill. Maybe that's what kind of people they are behind closed doors. Who knows what's been in their mouths?
NORMAN, OKLAHOMA -- With flies in our burritos, Mercury in my Mac N Cheese and who knows what else is out there (nutshells in a salad wrap), I thought that a "feel good" P.S.A. type of informative would be in order. Ordinarily, I try to stay away from canned soups unless I am coming down with a cold and need some chicken noodle soup for the ZINC it contains to sooth my sore throat. As for the "garden variety" of soups such as tomato soup, I'll pass even if it came with a grilled cheese 'sammie'. I am much too mature and sophisticated for that kind of meal. *joking*
Anyway, my overeducated Sister in all of her wisdom brought a case of this stuff for my Mom who very seldom eats soup so she (Mother) sent some home with me. Let me preface this by saying that due to age and maybe a few too many "Cosmos" here and there, my taste buds aren't that sensitive anymore so I need to "tighten up" my foods with various spices and probably way too much salt!
I had the Chicken Tortilla something soup (don't recall seeing any pieces of tortillas in it) and considering that it was a canned soup it had some hint of flavor but obviously not enough for me. I guess the lack of MSG does make a difference. I couldn't get enough salt in this stuff and the hot sauce didn't help much either.
Like I said that's my problem and I am not saying that this soup isn't any good. It probably is to those that can TASTE it. They could add a few more chunks of chicken. Not sure what the price is for these soups but for a quick lunch, they should hit the spot.
MERCHANTVILLE, NEW JERSEY -- Look, I like quick easy meals. Bought some chunky soup on sale, won"t pay full price - 1/3 of can was carrots. What? I'm not a rabbit. I want soup that's labeled in front of can, not carrot soup with other ingredient. All their soup is the same - carrots, carrot, carrots. What about something like celery? String beans? Peas? Are these vegetables too expensive?
I was horrified when I tasted the New recipe Cream of Mushroom Soup a few years ago. I used to love making Tuna Noodle Casserole with it and now I never make it because the soup tastes terrible. I LIKED the lumps in my soup - creamy does not equal BETTER! I tried other brands but apparently Campbell's makes many of them or they followed their lead because they have all ruined their creamed soups by changing the recipe and making them Smooth... yuck!
I would like to issue a complain on your products that you add MSG or hidden MSG in. As most people know.. MSG is a poison and thousands of people get very sick after eating products that contain MSG. We need to get it totally banned from all products. Please discontinue its use so we can again buy Campbell products.
MONTICELLO, MINNESOTA -- This has been one of my favorite soups in the past. However the last two cans that I bought have changed my opinion. There wasn't one single piece of chicken in either can. Very little corn and mostly carrots and potatoes. I'm not sure how either of them passed any inspection if you even have inspections. Very disappointed and not likely that I will buy that kind of soup again.
TALLAHASSEE -- The company claims to have added Sea Salt but something makes it taste like sulfur. It is awful and that is all I taste. Why couldn't they just cut back on the salt - use the sea salt but not add the other awful taste. I could have added any additional salt I wanted but now I can't fix it - all I taste is sulfur.
