[quoteThe child who fell ill had eaten products from four different sources, so it was unclear which if any were responsible for the reaction.

“We don’t really know if the allergen was sesame,” she said. “[The child] has a multitude of health issues so it could have been something completely different.

While the recall is costly, Elliott harbours no grudges.

“These are the people we serve, people with food allergies, just like my family,” she said.

This was really a case of better safe then sorry. At first I was quite disappointed that a company who's main customers are people with allergies would have been so careless about such a deadly allergen....but they chose to voluntarily recall first and examine product second. Obviously they really do care about their customers.
