Good Allergen Labeling

It is so easy to find poor labeling for allergens and allergies on food packages. There is a brand that always brings a smile to my face when I am at the supermarket--Amy's Kitchen. I like Amy's frozen entrees and I love their allergen labeling.

The box of Mattar Tofu I enjoyed yesterday states:

"Individuals with Food Allergies: This product is made in a facility that processes foods containing wheat, milk, tree nuts and seeds. Amy's Kitchen does not use any peanuts, shellfish or eggs."

Wouldn't it be fantastic if all food manufacturers included that level of detail on the packages? That would be great! It would make shopping a snap.

Which food manufacturers are your favorites for allergen labeling?

I love this allergy advisory. Clear, simple, thoughtful. Yes, they should ALL be this way.
