American Heart Association's Endorsement Of Campbell Soups Leads To Consumer Lawsuit

August 15, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
Campbell Soup Co. and the American Heart Association were sued by a consumer who alleged the AHA has committed fraud by certifying the company's products as healthy. AHA certifies more than 30 of Campbell's Healthy Request soups as "heart-healthy" although a can of soup contains at least six times more sodium than what the organization recommends, according to the lawsuit filed by New Jersey-based consumer Kerry O'Shea. Excessive sodium intake contributes to higher blood pressure, which can cause heart attacks and strokes.
