Food Roulette: Hidden Allergens in Foods

I was going to post an article about some gluten free corn dogs we had picked up a few weeks ago, but in pulling up the name in a web search, found out they were by no means gluten free.  That lead me to this article by the Chicago Tribune about Allergen threats in foods.

What is the most disturbing part about all of this is how many food recalls occur because of hidden allergens and are not reported to the public.  Even reading labels isn’t enough to be safe.  For those of you with severe allergies, please take care of yourself and be careful with what you eat.
