I just went shopping at Zehrs and noticed their new line of PN free products. They are right at the front of the store with other bakery items but they are clearly marked as PN free. The products are made in a PN/TN free facility :banana
But, as I was going around the store I notices signs saying PN free, safe for school, etc. I looked at these items and most were PN/TN free but every once in a while I noticed food on those shelves were baked in store and therefore not PN/TN free. After getting really annoyed with seeing item after item under these signs that were not PN/TN free I asked an employee about it. I was told they move things around and forgot to move the sign. The employee did move the sign for me after I explained that some ppl may believe they are safe when in fact they are not. She seemed to only humor me at the time and as I walked away she almost put the sign right back in the same spot until she saw me watching :banghead
But, on a positive note the products that are PN/TN free are tasty and I think kids (and adults) will enjoy them :swing

I have seen these labelling irregularities as well. It's frustrating as heck, but just proves that EVERY label has to be checked carefully, not just a sign above a shelf. :(

Agreed Becky. Even if I buy two or three of the exact same item I read every package and not just one and then grab two more. Who knows what line etc. different products may be made on or changes made after one line was run.
