This may be a no-brainer, but I bought this after being told it was nut free, I checked the end of the ingredient statement - no allergen info and started eating ALMOND GRANOLA!!!

I am trying to find out how to notify the FDA about the undeclared almonds, but it's kinda difficult. Fortunately, dd is allergic to almonds not me and I found it to be ABSOLUTELY DELISH!!! lol - she wasn't with me and she isn't severe to almonds...even though it might be obvious though that granola on a yogurt parfait should have nuts it DIDN'T SAY so I'm all irritable about it. And the ppl told me it didn't either! :( Y'all watch out!

Egads - that's the same yogurt parfait that almost killed a woman in British Columbia. Unbelievable if Starbucks didn't improve the labels in the U.S., too.

Here's where we discussed it:

We also did an article about the whole case in Allergic Living mag. earlier this year.

Not like they weren't warned it's a problem!

This is really crap, you know? I just bought another one to double check the label cuz I am working and not with dd....the label says at the bottom of the ingredients:

May contain pits.

This product is manufactured in a facility that processes tree nuts, soy, and wheat.

What the hell???? I mean seriously why doesn't it say "Does, in fact, contain nuts." That's what misled me so much the last time because I have eaten nut free granola plenty of times, and the almonds in it are sliced and not that obvious in the chunky granola!!!! I am going to contact again. Scary world for all of us.... :(
