The big idea: Putting Campbell's soups on a low-sodium crash diet. Since 2006, the Camden company has reformulated more than 85 recipes. By August, 48 varieties - including the children's favorite Chicken & Stars - will be "healthy" under FDA labeling laws, with 480 mg of sodium per serving. The key was a unique sea salt. Campbell has exclusive access to the magical crystals, and where they come from is a closely held secret. The company will not divulge the sea salt's country of origin, or even its continent.

Firefighters had their hands full when they turned out yesterday for a blaze in a Juniata plant that cleanses oil of toxic PCBs. First, they faced the challenge of a fire in sodium metal - a nasty chemical that can react explosively when wet. Beyond that loomed the question whether the blaze might release cancer-causing PCBs - polychlorinated biphenyl, a colorless, odorless pollutant when discharged. And as firefighters moved their deluge gun into position, a blocklong plume of irritating sodium hydroxide fumes rose southward from the PPM Inc. plant on Whitaker Avenue near Hunting Park, leading officials briefly to evacuate two neighboring businesses.

To ensure that eggs are free of salmonella bacteria, which can cause food poisoning, they must be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 to 165 degrees. That means that the yolk and whites have to be firm. ORGANIC FOOD LAW Confused about what "organically grown" means?

Headed out for some physical activity and want to perform like the Eagles' red-hot Duce? Well, drink bottles of water or chug sports drinks, but please, don't guzzle pickle juice. As many fans know, pickle juice was one of the drinks of choice for some of the Eagles players this weekend, a weapon that some say helped them romp the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium, where the mercury on the field climbed as high as 171. But nutritionists issue a stern warning to the amateur athlete - pickle juice can be downright dangerous.
