A warning from the NIH on the negative effects of metal can chemical bisphenol A on children has caught the attention of parents and threatens the fortunes of both producers as well as the $60B a year can-making industry. Though regulators haven't acted yet, companies such as Campbell Soup (CPB +1.8%) and H.J. Heinz (HNZ +0.7%) have already jumped the gun by taking steps to remove the compound from their products. In the line of fire: SLGN, BLL, CCK, DOW.
