    I appreciate the care and forethought that you have put into creating an honest and open allergen statement. I would ask you to continue to press those suppliers whom are not forthcoming in regards to the possibility of cross contamination from their production facilities.

    Unfortunately the severity of symptoms requires us to go up the chain to determine food safety. Some customers will feel comfortable with what you have been able to declare while others will not. We are all too familiar with the adage, “No food is 100% safe.” and this is why we must always carry and auto injector and be prepared to use it.

    Allergies seem to be on the rise and those allergens which patients historically outgrew, now seem to stay with us for life. This means our numbers will grow and it is to everyone’s best interest to have products which are marketable to those with food allergies as others often ask for a list of safe treats to purchase for celebrations.
