I saw Roger Clemens bagging groceries at Whole Foods the other day. He swore at me, when I said the Red-Sox were better...

have written to Justin King of sainsburys supermarket and am awaiting his reply.
I am asking for my local supermarket's managers report on my visit to the store.

I had a reply from my letter to justin king, the chief executive of sainsburys supermarket.
he had received the report from my local store manager.
He then went on to list the changes that sainsburys are working on at the moment.
Undating their 'free from' lists , which lists foods, such as nut /dairy/egg/wheat/gluten free.
And of course the work they have to do to comply with the new labeling laws that have to be in place by nov this year.
thirteen allergens, will have to be clearly identified in the ingredients list, and in the allergy box below the ingredients list.
in the case of anything with milk, they are even going to put what type of animal the milk comes from( I wonder why they thought that was important?)
They are also reviewing and extending their cross contamination labeling. ( hmmmm)
Its a shame that he doesnt realise that the so called 'free from ' food prouducts on the shelf are totally unsuitable for those with IGE allergies. esp those with nut allergies.
I get the impression that justin thinks that the problem is all for my local branch manager to solve, the problem being me! , and I have to say that this manager is very very helpful.
However, as I did take pains to point out in my previous letters, I am not the only one who has this problem.
and the whole point of the so called freefrom or allergy free foods, is that they are not allergy or freefrom foods AT ALL.
I wonder what my next step shall be?
I will send a copy of this letter to the anaphylaxis campaign, as I have the rest.
But somehow I wish that I could meet this person in the flesh in his shop and push my shopping list in his hand and time him !!!
