More about The Clown – poor Ronald has found himself in a quandary after announcing there are wheat and dairy derivatives on their fries. It looks like three parties have sued The Clown over the announcement. To fight these suits it’s become priority number 1 to get a scientist to test the foods to prove there are not allergens present…and the scientist found no allergens present. So which is it Ronald? This blog I found seems to have a pretty good report on the most recent news.
The Case of the Disappearing Pizza – tonight was a pizza night, and we hired Pizza Hut. While I was putting my pizza together on their website I decided to check for new food label information. I was handsomely rewarded. They are now admitting to egg in the pizza sauce, and acknowledge that peanuts and tree nuts can possibly exist in products manufactured for them. It seems pretty obvious that this is a CYA claim along the lines of, “if we say everything has everything in it then we can’t be breaking the law.” Come on Pizza Hut, do the work, find out for sure. It might be worth a customer or two. I enjoy this statement the most, "Please check with the store manager." If you only knew what I knew about what store managers know about food allergies!
So I jumped over to our other pizza of choice, Papa John’s. Their site has the same statements as it always has. Well good! At least we still have the Papa…or do we? There’s a voice in my head telling me it’s more likely their legal department just hasn’t fully grasped what the new food labeling laws mean.
The saga continues...
