I’m at a loss for words on this one…

January 23, 2008

As a member of the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network, I regularly get emails about product recalls due to undeclared ingredients.  A few are informative and sometimes they apply to a product that I occasionally buy.  Many are regional or about an allergy we don’t have.  However, this one really stood out in ye ole in-box…

**THE FOOD ALLERGY & ANAPHYLAXIS NETWORK SPECIAL FOOD ALLERGY ALERT NOTICE**

PECAN ALLERGY ALERT

Dreyer’s Grand Ice Cream is recalling 1.75-qt. packages of “Dreyer’s Slow Churned Light Caramel Delight” ice cream and “Dreyer’s Slow Churned Light Butter Pecan” ice cream due to undeclared pecans.

How can Butter Pecan ice cream have undeclared pecans?  Doesn’t naming the flavor “Butter Pecan” imply that pecans will be present in the ice cream, or at the very least you stand a strong chance of having pecans in your ice cream?  Does Butter Pecan ice cream generally have “artificial butter pecan-ish flavor”?  Has it really come to this, people?  Do the lawyers think we’re that stupid?
