Soy Wonder Soy Butter
As you can probably tell, yesterday was NOT a good PA day!
When I went to pick up Soy Wonder Soy Butter, I noticed a new product on the next shelf - Peanut Wonder. (Soy Wonder prominently states "contains no nuts" on the label.) I called the company to find out if they are made on shared equipment, and after calling several different people, I finally got the "right" person. He said yes, they are made on the same equipment as they are essentially the same product, just made with different ingredients. He did not know what the cleaning processes were between runs, etc.
Needless to say, I almost bit his head off. I brought to his attention that the label promotes this as a nut-free product, so allergic people are likely to trust it. His reaction - "Wow, you're right." My message to his supervisor has yet to be returned.
Fortunately Kevin has never eaten it since he hates it, but I was planning to make Cayley's Mom's cookies with it.
Good thing my computer was out of commission for most of yesterday, as you all would have needed flak suits to read my messages, had I been able to type them! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
