pAbout a year ago, I wrote to Albertsons Groceries, asking if their products were safe. They wrote back and said that if any of their products had a chance of cross-contamination or contained any peanut, they would label it. They also said that "it is federal law, and we abide by that law." If it is federal law, then why don't more companies label correctly?br /
P.S.br /
My apologies to everyone for getting so upset in my post "What's Wrong With Kellogs?!". I guess I was having a - what I call, a bad peanut allergy day.

Can you post the address. I shop at Alberstons but at this time of year they have bulk penauts and treenuts and the dust is dreadful. I can't bring my son in and don't buy any fruit or vegetables from that area. Talks with the manager have been fruitless. Thanks,

Peanut Girl, I cannot help but feel you spoke with someone unknowledgeable about Federal Law. There are no current laws that cover cross contamination.
As a food manufacturer myself (albeit a small one) I know the law covers all items that are in the recipe for that particular product. The law does not cover trace amounts of another product that is residual and inadvertently gets included.
I think a follow-up with Albertson's is in order - should we add them to our labeling campaign?

EILEEN - I think I went to Albertsons.com and emailed them. When you are on their website, scroll down to the bottom and click on Customer Service to email them. Hope that helps!
