Grocery store bakery???
I was wondering, a big local chain grocer here in CO is King Soopers. I know they're parent company is Kroger, some of you may know. Okay, so my question is about their bakery items. If they are making cakes and selling them and NOT one word is mentioned on their label as *may contain* or *made in a facility*.....but were told by the bakery manager they ARE all made on at the same facility(but no nut warning on ANY label)....who can you report them too? Is there a place even? A friend of mine discovered this after she went to have them make her a cake. The Bakery manager even called the warehouse/bakery and was told by them that they're cakes are make on shared equipment(almond poppy is one of the flavors I am worried about) but there is NO mention of anything nut on their other flavors of cakes....which doesn't make sense. Isn't it against the law NOT to label them as *made in a facility..."??? This came up because we were just at a b-day party and the mom was trying, she really was, saved the label for me to read...she told me how she went to store after store until she found a nut-free label and bought the cake there. So here I am, trusting this store that their cake is safe, when I hear from another friend that it isn't! How do you get the store to change their labels, how do you get them to follow federeal laws??? What should I do next(of course NOT buy cakes from them) but who can I go to, to get this corrected???
