Campbell’s Putting Salt Back In Soup

Campbell Soup Co's (CPB.N) incoming CEO Denise Morrison is bringing back the salt as she tries to entice people to buy more soup. The move to add salt and flavor in more than two dozen soups after a health-inspired low-sodium push failed to lift sales is one of several steps that Morrison -- who has run the company since March -- announced on Tuesday at an annual investor meeting at the company's headquarters in Camden, New Jersey. Campbell is overhauling soup products, coming out with bread shaped like Goldfish crackers, and will be, in Morrison's words, "a beehive of activity" in fiscal 2012 as it tries to spur growth after several winters of weak soup sales that have weighed on the company's share price/Reuters.

Question: Do you watch the amount of salt that's in your diet?
