EWG's Top Findings

Certified organic product [read more]

Certified organic product

Certified organic food is produced without the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilizers, and free of genetically engineered ingredients. Certified organic meat and dairy must also be produced without antibiotics and artificial growth promoters or hormones.

Manufacturer likely used the toxic chemical BPA in can lining [read more]

Manufacturer likely used the toxic chemical BPA...

BPA, an endocrine disrupting chemical, is used to line the inside of nearly every canned food sold in the United States. Research shows that BPA readily leaches from the cans into the food. For more information visit: http://www.ewg.org/bpa/

Company reports using BPA-free cans for some products, but has declined to state for which of its products this applies

Excellent source of naturally occurring vitamin A [read more]

Excellent source of naturally occurring vitamin A

Vitamin A is an essential nutrient that is naturally occurring in dairy, fish, eggs, fish and meat products and, in the form of vitamin A precursors, in orange and yellow vegetables such as carrots and pumpkin. Vitamin A is also frequently added for fortification of packaged food. EWG recommends children and pregnant women limit consumption of highly fortified foods to avoid overexposure since getting too much of certain forms of vitamin A can lead to health problems. Read EWG's report on getting the correct amount of vitamin A, zinc and niacin: http://www.ewg.org/research/how-much-is-too-much

Contains 40% of the Institute of Medicine's daily sodium (salt) recommendations based on adequate intake [read more]

Contains 40% of the Institute of Medicine's dai...

This product contains a high percentage of the Institute of Medicine's recommended adequate intake for sodium of 1500 mg a day (IOM 2005). This value is much lower than what the FDA requires be listed on food labels -- 2400 mg. Americans average 3,400 mg of sodium a day. Most of this sodium comes from processed foods where sodium is added to mask the lack of freshness by enhancing the flavor, texture or palatability and extending shelf-life (IOM 2010). Many of these uses are for the manufacturers benefit and not the consumer's health as excess sodium intake is linked to high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and kidney disease (IOM 2010).

Product has been classified as having moderate processing concerns
