Petruzzi Pizza gets SLAMMED by FDA
« on: August 31, 2012, 12:54:52 PM »
I actually was researching some drugs for work and I decided to type in 'potassium bromate' which led me to this. There are some legitimate concerns in here but some of these allegations are crazy. Do they really have to put "contains: wheat" under their pizza in their menu?

atom,

If the company is subject to FDA rules and regulations, then, yes, the label must list wheat since it is an allergen.

The warning on a bag of Southwest Airlines peanuts: "Processed in a plant that processes peanuts and other nuts."
Pizza is not bread.
