Campbell Soup Co.

Workers exposed to asbestos

As a processed food and snack company, Campbell Soup Co. is one of the largest manufacturers in this industry across the U.S. While the company is most commonly associated with the flagship canned soup products it manufactures, it produces a significantly wider range of food. It was founded in 1869, which means that it has a very rich history. Campbell Soup Co. has 2 divisions at the moment, namely Meals & Beverages and Snacks. The net sales of the company are $8.5 billion at the moment, whereas the number of people who work for it is 14,500. Unfortunately, Campbell Soup Co. exposed workers to asbestos during the last century due to using machinery and equipment that contained the toxic mineral. If you were employed at this company and developed a disease related to occupational asbestos exposure, contact us, and we will obtain financial compensation for you.

Claim Evaluation

Campbell Soup Co. employees exposed to asbestos

Since 2000, the company began having claims filed against it by former employees who alleged they came to struggle with terrible diseases as a consequence of having been exposed to asbestos while working for Campbell Soup Co. They state that they had to work in close proximity to equipment that was manufactured with asbestos. A lot of the asbestos exposure seems to have taken place at the plant located in Camden, New Jersey. Unnervingly, the plant is one of the 96 asbestos exposure sites in the state.

Even though the company was aware of the dangers of asbestos exposure, it continued using the mineral until it no longer had a choice, namely until 1980. Another important location where asbestos exposure is known to have occurred is the company’s mushroom plant facility in Ganges, Michigan. These are the occupational groups that may have been exposed to asbestos by Campbell Soup Co. during the last century:

Asbestos related cancer eligible for filing a claim

If you developed one of the following cancers as a result of occupational exposure, you are eligible for compensation. If you are too ill, a family member can help you with the legal process. In the unfortunate event that you pass away before recovering compensation, your surviving family members will receive compensation on your behalf.

Lung Cancer Mesothelioma Throat Cancer Esophageal Cancer Bronchial Cancer Gastrointestinal Cancer Colorectal Cancer

If, however, you struggle with non-cancerous pleural diseases such as asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, pleural plaques, pleural effusion, diffuse pleural thickening, COPD (emphysema & chronic bronchitis), pleurisy, lung nodules, lung spots, asthma, pneumonitis, tuberculosis, rounded atelectasis or lung scarring, please seek a second or even a third opinion as the rate of misdiagnosis is very high among the victims of asbestos exposure.

Secondary asbestos exposure, a serious concern for the family members of Campbell Soup Co. workers

Although the chances of experiencing secondary asbestos exposure if you shared your home with a Campbell Soup Co. worker during the last century are quite small, there is a certain risk. Because employees were not required to change their clothes when they left work, they may have brought asbestos fibers in the house, from where family members could have inhaled or ingested them. Furthermore, when coming in contact with the employee who still had their work clothes on, their children and their spouses may have breathed in and swallowed toxic fibers from their clothes.

If you lived under the same roof as a Campbell Soup Co. worker before 1980 and came to struggle with a disease that has a link to asbestos exposure, we advise you to contact our law firm, as our area of practice is toxic exposure, and we can also help you recover compensation for secondary asbestos exposure. After explaining your situation and sending us the documents we need, we will evaluate your case, and if we find that you are eligible, we will file a claim on your behalf, which is bound to bring you the money you deserve for your suffering.
