Hostess' new nut allergy warnings
I spoke with a Hostess rep this morning and voiced my concern regarding the new nut allergy warnings on all their products. She stated that regardless if the product is produced in a facility with other nuts, the warning will be on the box. She said that the consumer could call with the product number off each box, and I told her that I doubt most people would do that, rather I would just stop buying their product.
I stated my sadness because the cupcakes have been a staple of ours for the last 10 years in school, for parties, etc. I also stated that if the company just searched "Hostess nut allergy warnings" on the internet, they would see the frustration from other parents.
I am urging anyone interested to calling and file a formal statement, as I did. She said that someone would be calling me, and I hope they do, as I really want them to understand the consequences of this blanket warning for our kids. I guess I'll be replacing the boxes of cupcakes in my son's classroom with Divvies cookies.
The number to Hostess is (800)483-7253.
