Safeway Grocery Stores have Nut Butter Station
I am fairly new here and more of a lurker than anything, but I am coming out of lurkdom to share this alert. I'm not sure if this has been posted yet, or even if I am posting this in the correct area. But I wanted to make sure the word got out about Safeway stores.
I was just at our Safeway grocery store that I have been shopping at for almost a year now. The store is being remodeled. Well, today I noticed something that sent me into disbelief and shock. A Nut Butter making station that is set up in the store! This means that basically they are processing nuts of all kinds right next to the canned goods and literally just steps away from the produce isle!
I tried to ask someone about when the station would be functioning and no one knew...nor did it seem like they cared.
I'm seriously appalled that ANY store would process nuts inside their store and right out in the open where people are shopping!
Today was the last day that I will shop at Safeway and I will be transferring our prescriptions from there as well. We can't take a risk of my son (who has a severe allergy to peanuts) will take an antibiotic and have a reaction for a particle floating around in the air.
I am also going to be contacting Safeway via phone and in a letter about the situation. And let me tell ya, they will miss us with the amount of business we give them from the pharmacy alone (my son is also an asthmatic).
