Writing to Oprah or Good Morning America
I am seriously thinking of contacting Oprah and/or Good Morning America to ask them to do an expose about soy and peanut allergies. I might contact other shows, as well.
I know a producer at GMA, so it's possible it might get done. I don't know anyone at Oprah, so that is a total shot in the dark.
I am just so FED UP with soy flour and soy protein showing up in EVERYTHING these days. And if it doesn't have soy flour, it has a peanut warning on the label.
We work from an increasingly shrinking list of packaged food products we can safely buy. It is really starting to get to me. My kids asked me the other day, "Mom, if it continues like this, what will we be able to eat?" The answer, unfortunately, is not much that is packaged.
Would you guys want to participate in a letter-writing (or email writing) campaign to some TV shows to illustrate how many people are affected by these allergens showing up in foods where they do not belong?
Somebody in the food industry has got to start being held accountable for this. It just isn't right. What is soy flour doing in bagels, bread, rolls, Twinkies, pancake mix, and donuts? What can we do to help stop it?
