Escalon packs some product for Trader Joes
« on: December 08, 2006, 03:05:58 PM »
Just got off the phone correcting a billing order from Escalon's web site, and I inquired about more product in 28 oz. cans. She said they've actually reduced what is offered, due to 98% of their business being in foodservice.

However, I was told by the Customer Service rep. that Escalon packs three products for Trader Joe's:
Marinara sauce (in cans);
Trader Giotto's Marinara;
and a starter sauce, she couldn't recall the name fully at the moment.

It was a bit rushed, so I've missed writing down a few things, I think the starter sauce might be in glass.

Thanks for posting the info Al.  :D

A while back someone posted that TJ had some Escalon products but we didn't know exactly which products they were.


Now we have a better idea.

I was in TJ's last night and every TJ tomato product I looked at had citric acid in it.

Picked up two different cans of Trader Joe's Marinara last week.  The left is the Trader Joe's Marinara and the right is Trader Giotto's Tuscano Marinara.  Neither have citric acid but the left one caught my eye because it is made with unpeeled tomatoes.

Does anyone know if the Escalon has the "Made in a Facility that processes fish and soy" notice?

I've never seen a fish warning on any product.

I've never seen a fish warning on any product.

there are fish and/or shellfish warnings on many products , two types of warnings, the food contains or the food was processed in a plant with fish/shellfish .   Condiments are the worst and there are even warnings on some vitamins.  I'm allergic to both fish and shellfish so I read labels

If i'm remembering correctly the Tuscan Tomato was for sure Escalon's. The green label Marinara used to list citric acid, so that's changed.
FDA has new labeling requirements for allergies and a few other things.
The contamination mentioned on the label most likely comes from processing plants for the herbs and/or the imported olive oil.
