    Consumers are clipping coupons at a higher rate than anytime since the 2007 recession, according to tracking from Coupons.com. The biggest amount of activity has been seen in the food categories (CPB, KRFT, CAG, PEP) of soup, cheese, rice, and pasta - although personal care and beauty items (PG, AVP, EL, UL, CL) are also in focus.

    More on Campbell Soup (CPB +1.5%): After the mega-buyout of Heinz yesterday, Campbell's Q4 report (I, II) is getting viewed in a different light with its iconic brands and proven resiliency to economic turmoil making it somewhat similar to the ketchup maker. The main difference? The company is further along in revitalizing its brands and striking into new areas. If investors are buying CPB on M&A speculation, the wait might be long.

    More on Campbell Soup's (CPB) FQ2: The double-digit Y/Y rise in revenue was largely due to the acquisition of Bolthouse Farms, although price and sales allowance gains also contributed. Execs say brand building in the key soup category was helped by innovation not just advertising. The company confirms its previous FY13 sales growth guidance of 10% to 12% and says it expects EPS of $2.51 to $2.57 for the fiscal year. (PR)

    The FDA is proposing two new food safety rules for foodborne illness prevention. The first rule would require food makers to develop a formal plan for preventing their food products from causing foodborne illness, and for correcting any problems that might arise. The second proposes enforceable, scientific-based safety standards for the production and harvesting of produce on farms.
