For foods and ingredients that may have an incomplete ingredient list,
consumers can refer to Chapter 2, Annex 2-2, and 2-3 of the 2003 Guide
to Food Labelling and Advertising at

The next time someone wants to feed our daughter, I think I might print these lists and ask them if they can tell the food is safe by reading the "exempt from listing the ingredients of ingredients" lists.

When are we going to get clear labelling laws like the US?

That's a good incentive to get them to *not* feed your daughter!

There definitely needs to be better labelling. If the info is too much to print on the package, at least companies should have to have it available online or something.
