Out Tax Dollars At Work: Des Moines Iowa Hazmat Team Discovers Salt In Campbell’s Soup


DES MOINES, IOWA – A Des Moines woman found a suspicious substance in a can of Campbell’s Soup on Tuesday and the fire department sent out a hazardous materials crew.

Des Moines fire inspector Ted Jefferson said the substance in the can was not hazardous but it certainly surprised the homeowner and the hazardous materials team.

“It was salt,” said Jefferson. “It wasn’t supposed to reach retail shelves.”

Police took a report from Tama Jepsen in the 3100 block of Southwest Fifth St. at about 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

A police report said she found an unknown substance in the can.

“It was a test can for the soup company,” said Jefferson.”It’s for quality assurance purposes. The test can apparently signals machines to change the product it is canning. But somehow it got in with the rest of the cans.”

Jepsen declined comment. The police report did not specify the flavor of soup.
