What manufacturers DON\'T label properly? U.S. ONLY please
There are many places where people have discussed the "may contain" label or unusual sources of peanut. What I want to know, as I'm sure newcomers want to know is:
What food manufacturers are unsafe in their production processes for PA yet don't and aren't willing to label their products accordingly?
Have you experienced reactions from a product that was not labeled in any way - what was it and who made it?
Please also indicate those that are on shared equipment, shared facilities, etc. if you know.
If we are going to get anywhere with this labeling issue we need to work with these manufacturers specifically as well as what Chris is doing on the national level for legislation.
I would like to limit this to AMERICAN food manufacturers, not Canadian or European. My reason is that certain manufacturers have taken a better position in Canada and I know the UK has a current law of 25% content labeling that they are currently working on amending. Being in the U.S. I want to focus this thread on U.S. produced foods or those brought into this country that need to follow U.S. labeling guidelines.
