That's just false. Where do you get your info from?

Default Campbell's

I just recalled... Campbell's and probably some of the other makers had a plastic container design where you can directly heat the soup from that container itself. All you needed to do was remove the plastic lid, then tear off the metal covering, then replace the plastic lid before doing so.[/quote]

I've seen the Campbell's soup packaging like that and I love that the food container serves as a dish, too. The way food is packaged can make mealtime a snap and also leaves less waste to deal with.

It's only dangerous if you have improperly canned it at home without pressure cooking at high temps, then it can conceivably have deadly botulin - but cooking won't destroy the toxin once it has formed. Or some other type of heat-resistant bacteria is possible with low-acid water-bath processing.

So don't eat home-canned soup right from the jar.

The point of vacation and camping is to eat good food right?
As others have mentioned, there is low sodium stuff. And it couldn't possibly be worse than some restaurant or "quick bite" joints.

And it depends on the vacation. For example, if at a convention, I want to spend more time doing convention stuff that I won't be able to otherwise. Unless the food's a unique experience, then I'd rather just eat the cheaper food I brought rather than line up for stuff like McDonalds or Subway that's everywhere anyways.

I think Meaning might have been referring to condensed soups rather than ready-to-eat.

If a tree falls in the forest and there's nobody there to hear it....

DON'T DO IT WHERE PEOPLE CAN SEE YOU!!! That would make it less unclassy.
