It is interesting to note that the labeling laws between Canada and the US,differ so greatly. I once contacted a company I believe it was either Kraft, or Quaker Oats. I called the 1-800 number, was asked where I was calling from. When I stated the province, I was given a number in Canada to call. Even with the labeling, there are still recalls on foods because they company failed to mention peanut/nut, or may contain ect.

I've found labelling unhelpful in the past. Certainly, with the 'may contain...' additions on a lot of labels recently, I feel better warned, but the mfgs are still using the catch-all 'vegetable'(oil,protein,etc)too much for my peace of mind.
