A Change! Score one for us!
I had a positive experience with a company today re: their labeling. I purchased a store brand (Meijer) of chocolate chips - specifically because there was no warning label on them. I was suspicious, though, after hearing of the Nestle choc. chips new label. I called the store headquarters which gave me the name of their chocolate supplier, Kargher Chocolate. When I told them of my son's PA they recommended I return the chips to the store unopened!! Turns out they also make a PB chip and use peanut flour as well in their factory. I told them they needed to make a change in their labeling and gave them my name, etc. They explained they are a supplier for many stores, and it was up to the individual stores to make the labeling change. I called Meijer again... and just received a call back from their office asking me how I would like the label to read!!! They thanked me for bringing this to their attention and they are willing to change the label to "May contain..." ASAP!! Glad to see speaking up has its benefits. Hope to spare some other little one from a reaction.
