Net sales weren't hot at Campbell Soup during the second quarter of the company's fiscal year, and Walmart Inc. might be to blame.

The Walmart factor dates back to November and caused Campbell shares to plunge more than 7 percent after the food giant said that soup sales in the U.S. fell 9 percent from a year ago.
