Great American Cookie Company
I bought all my children cookies today at the Great American Cookie Company. My PA child asked if there were peanuts and I was appalled to realize I had not asked. I asked the man behind the counter and he said, "Oh yeah, we use 100% peanut oil in ALL our cookies." THERE WAS NO SIGN DECLARING THIS! I talked to the manager and suggested they put up a sign, that there might even be a requirement legally and she was VERY defensive. She said, "No, we don't have to. Most people ask before they buy the cookies!" But what about the ones, like me, who lost their thoughts and didn't?!! What about people who might be taking care of a child with a peanut allergy and are not used to asking about it?! She told me she would talk to the owner but reiterated that most people ask before they buy them. AGH! What can be done????
