Hall of Fame for M&M Meat Shops for many reasons:
- binder with all products with a easy to read box that lists the major allergens - as soon as you look at the page you know if it has your allergen (the staff open the book to the correct pages for me as it is by number of the product)
- box labels are easy to read and include May Contains
- staff are very helpful - despite our 20+ list of allergens, they always help me to find items that we can eat
- staff carry items to my car (on big load days!)
- drinks are available (that is on my daughter's HOF for them)

I wrote to them today to thank them. I want to do this with more companies who label clearly and include May Contains.

I don't shop there, but was planning to get food there for a party that ended up being cancelled. I was very impressed with the info on their website. Will definitely kep them in mind for future parties.

I have been unable to cook much lately so their dinners really helped us out! We have used their appetizers for parties too.

DS can't eat all their food of course but I emailed their HO thanking them for their great allergen labeling. What has been labeled as safe ds has in fact eaten with no incident. Their allergen binder is great and staff always take the time to go over with me every single package we buy. :thumbsup

you used to be able to get them to print up a list of which products are free of your allergens. It came in handy when ^we first started shopping there as some of the safe products are things I never would have checked. I just assumed unsafe. I don't know if they can still do it....and not every store knows how.

You are right - they did print me a list of items without tree nuts but the darn print was so small I couldn't read it! So I just forgot I had it...
