I start this blog entry with…UGH! Those of us dealing with our child’s food allergies have heard over and over, check and double check ingredients of every food you buy every time you buy it. Campbell’s is a well-known company and I generally trust their labels. I was a bit discouraged though on my most recent trip to the store. Campbell’s has a new line of soups out called Select Harvest. It’s marketed as a healthier choice, without MSG or artificial flavors. Be careful! Their Chicken Tortilla soup contains peanut oil. It’s listed in the middle of the ingredient list, but it is not in bold type nor is there a warning statement anywhere else on the label. I know Campbell’s did their job by listing it in the ingredients. I just thought that by now, bigger companies would at least put the top allergens in bold letters, if not have a separate warning statement.
It’s a good reminder that it really is important to read every label every time.
