Comments

  1. Good report! Thank you for caring enough to inform the public about these ‘accidents’. People need to know about these kinds of things whether they are vegan or weather they are meat-eaters. I suspect, though, that it was a labeling ‘error’ by the designers of the products who were ‘hastily’ working for manufacturers and had nothing to do with Whole Foods Market at all.
