Allergy Aware

Good news from the FDA, via the Washington Post. Companies who make products which contain common allergens (i.e., dairy, nuts, shellfish, etc.) will now have to declare those products on the food labels. While many companies do that now, it should help those with food allergies avoid those foods in the future.

It should also make it easier for vegans to identify many more of those products with “hidden” animal ingredients in them, thus making it easier to avoid those that do. Good news indeed.

Cloneburger, anyone?

It’s things like this that make me glad I went vegan. Cloned food. No thanks!
