Campbell’s Soup Has a Math Problem | Fooducate

Here’s an interesting read from the Consumerist Blog. Several moms from New Jersey are suing Campbell’s for misleading labeling.

You’d think that the soup on the right has 25% less sodium than the one on the left, but in fact, they both have 480mg. So why the big bold statement? If you read the fine print, you’ll realize that this is 25% less than other regular soups.

To Campbell’s credit, they have been reducing sodium in their soups in the past few years and plan to continue reductions.

But stating “25% Less Sodium” or “30% more fiber” in bold text and then adding a tiny qualifier at the bottom “compared to regular” is the kind of sleazy behavior we all hate as consumers.

And 480mg of sodium is still quite a high count for a single cup of soup.
