Can you tell me what Hain-Celestial makes? I'm not familiar with this name. Is it a Canadian company? I'm in the US.

Among other things, they make Earth's Best baby food *on shared lines*. Talk about putting millions of babies at risk of developing nut allergies!
My favorites:
General Mills
Krispy Kreme (if only they weren't so fatty!)
IM Healthy (editing to add this-I forgot about them somehow)
Nestle (I just don't like Nestle USA in general, for a variety of reasons)
Con-Agra (like pulling teeth trying to get info)
Hidden Valley (won't give any information at all)

Wouldn't it be cool if handed out awards every year to the worst and best companys? Called in the media, had a trophy and actually try to "present" it to the CEOs??? I think that might bring some attention to our cause!

1. Hersheys
2. chocolates
3. Nabisco
1. Lindt (I had a reaction before they even started to label) My husband thought it was all in my mind because the label didn't say anything about peanuts. Shortly after they started to put (contains peanuts) stickers on all packages because "they got some complaints". I hope no "complaining people" died from their reactions.
2. Giardeli (don't know spelling) always break out no matter what the label says.
3. I don't trust Peperidge Farms cookies because 3 years ago I ate a Milano cookie (with the chocolate in between and I bit on 2 pieces of hazelnut. And they were not small either.

Okay... here goes.
1. General Mills
2. Keebler (man, I [i]never[/i] thought I'd say [i]that![/i] )
3. Hershey/Dare (it's a TIE!!!)
1. Kraft/Nabisco (Ahh, yes--those friendly CSRs with the "you don't need that information" line...)
2. Hain-Celestial
3. Con-Agra
But hey, things change. Four years ago, Keebler would have been on my second list!
