Last night for dinner, we had cheezeburgers. I ran to Shaw's supermarket on the way home from work and picked up the store brand Hamburger Buns. As always, I read the package to make sure that they were safe for my peanut and sesame allergic son. At dinner, I passed out the buns, and was serving dinner and my son asked my wife, "mom, what are these?" Sure enough, there were sesame seeds on the bottom of the bun...it was obviously a result of cross contamination. We lucked out, it was our 7 year old that found them...needless to say, we'll never buy those again. Just wanted to let you all know.

Did you call Shaws and let them know? I'll look around and see if I can find the name of the guy I always contact. I'm absolutely shocked at that!
I can't find it. KStreeter, do you have it?

Dadoftwo: I have not found any buns/breads that I can buy to eat in my province. Even if they don't have sesame seeds, they run on the same equipment and much like peanuts, the protein is in the products that do not contain the seeds.
The only place I've bought buns/bread in about 15 years is Atlantic Superstore, which BrendaJ was nice enough to post about shortly before my east coast vacation. They do not use peanuts or sesame seeds in the products they make *in store*.
Good luck to you and your family.

We shot off an email to them...haven't heard any reply as yet. We'll see what they say.
