It's nice to have the information, but... seriously?

But it also says "soy and wheat". I imagine that's a standard stamp on foods that many people have reactions or allergies to no matter what the content is. You'd be surprised how little it takes for a celiac person to react.
..And you know someone would sue if it wasn't listed and they reacted.

Wouldn't you think that one could build up an immunity through tiny exposures like these? I guess not always.
Well, obviously we have giant butterflies in CA. They's climbin' in your windows, They's snatchin' your people up, tryin' to steal 'em. So y'all need to hide your kids, hide your stars, and hide your coaches cause they're grabin' everybody out here.

Around 200 people in the US die every year from food allergies...it only takes milligrams to kill

Very true, sadly. It's increadible how tiny amounts can kill people in worst cases. Anyone here suffers from any allergies? Dust is my kryptonite.

Comedian Orny Adams had a performance that I just watched, called "More Than Loud."

Very funny stuff. It makes fun of SillyAss celiac disease, gluten, peanut allergies, warning labels, millennials, men and women, and how boomers', and early generation Xers' upbringing differs from today's kids' upbringing.

Like Don Rickles, only more pleasant.
