Post subject:  Unexpected Shellfish or Fish Sources

With my previous thread on that one brand of bandages containing shrimp protein, thought it might be smart for us to start a list of unexpected shellifsh or fish sources.

Here's a start:
- Microdermabrasion kits - some of these kits use crustacean shells as the rough substance to remove dead skin.
- Omega 3 - a lot of people still don't realize that it's very often fish-derived.

I heard once that Pringles uses anchovies, somehow...gross huh? Sorry I think anchovies are gross period. I couldn't find it online, so....may not be true.

Definitely the bandaid source takes the cake, lol.

Foods commonly containing fish (from above link): caesar salad dressing, worcestershire sauce, ceviche, caviar, gelatin, cioppino, nam pla, bouillabaisse, fume, surimi, pissaladiere, omega 3 supplements, and caponata.

Good grief - sardine in chips?

I don't get why they even go there with their recipe.

At least they have a 'contains' statement - since the sardine is pretty far down the list.

Fish oil in Mr. Christie Snack Paks ABC Cocoa cookies.

I checked the other flavors of the Mr. Christie Snack Paks and only saw fish listed in the cocoa ones.

Our daughter was reading ingredient labels as we shopped today (she is my double checker). She read a box of cookies that had a peanut free symbol on it and put it down saying these have fish in them. I didn't believe her and looked, I still didn't see where it said fish (back to how miniscule companies label). Well after re-reading the entire ingredients sure enough there was fish oil listed. There was no allergy warning on the box separate from the ingredients. Is refined fish oil not allergy causing? In my head, fish is fish and 1.gross, 2. I'm not taking any chances.

The box says "REFINED FISH OIL (COD LIVER OIL)" What the!!! I mean really, in chocolate cookies, do they NEED the fish! I don't care if it is refined, I don't want to take a chance on ANY fish oil, what are some companies thinking!!!!


OMEGA-3 EGGS
I have read that Omega-3 eggs are eggs that are produced when are hens fed a diet suppimented with ground flax seed BUT...I also have read that ....
"Some liquid omega-3 egg products do contain fish oil to increase the amount of omega-3 fatty acids in the product. "
My question is, if eggs now may contain fish - will that be shown in ingredients listings if used in food products, or will they just have to list EGGS??

Good question!

Re: Mr. Christie cookies, take the time to send a quick e-mail (no stamp required!) to the company and let them know that by adding the fish oil, they are limitting their target customer base. $$$ is what companies listen to.

Done :D :D
I let them know their efforts to make peanut/nut free products are appreciated BUT do they think we could also eliminate fish! I've never worried about cross contamination when buying cookies....with fish before!!!!!!!!!!!
