    LOL.
    Wanna take a bet that the milk people get sued by the govmt for violating labeling laws if they don't put this on there...

    Yeah, I'm certain they didn't put it there out of common sense. Some stupid labeling labeling law is clearly at play, but it makes for teh funniez.

    But they'd let them put in aspartame and NOT tell us. :/ Pretty pathetic.

    It has to do with a requirement to list the top 8 allergens. So if it contains wheat, it will say "contains wheat". But gluten is not an allergen, so there's no way from reading the label whether they are hiding gluten within a "natural flavoring" or "spice blend".

    I bought a container of feta cheese recently that stated it was from cows not given bgh, but in tiny lettering at the bottom of the label it stated that there is no proof that milk from bgh treated cows blah blah blah. It's almost always easy to tell when the gub'ment has its stinky little fingers in something.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Nowhere else to moan, but looks like I've now added full blown food allergies to the pile of crap. Now to work out the cause. It would be nice if my antihistamines actually worked though

    Damn sinus infection. Damn antibiotics.
    Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, steak in one hand, chocolate in the other, yelling "Holy F***, What a Ride!"

    And now I have a viral infection on top of a sinus infection. What did I do to offend the gods of primal and cause them to abandon me?!
    (No, Q, I haven't taken any C today. I'm seeing if even my regular pills stay down.)
