Found Nuts in Shoprite Cake, what should I do???
Hi all!! I needed a little advice. I daringly purchased a Store made cake at shoprite yesterday for my husband's birthday. Before I bought the cake I spoke with a person in the bakery department. I explained that my two children both have a deadly peanut/ nut allergy. We went over the ingredient list together, She assured me it was nut free. She even went on to say, that they don't use any nut products in thier cakes because so many people have allergies now. I handed out the cake, My one daughter started eating hers, I was eating mine. I found a few walnuts in mine. I started emmediately grabbed thier cakes and called the store after making sure my one daughter was OK. My one daughter is allergic to more than peanuts but not all nuts. My other daughter hasn't yet been tested for other nuts. I spoke with the store manager and he was very nice and apologetic, he told me he would talk to the bakery departmentt and the owners about possible putting warning labels on the cakes. Is there anything else I need to do?????? (Besides thank God that my kiids are OK) Thanks for reading!!!
