Oh, I tried, I really did. I wanted to LOVE Trader Joe's but here's the thing--every single thing I picked up to put into my basket said, "Made in a facility that also processes tree nuts." That even included a vanilla bean from Madagascar!
There was not one thing I could buy with impunity. And I wanted to. Really. The prices were so great, $2.99 for organic strawberries which were $4.99 at Whole Foods.
Is it because they work directly with producers and don't manufacture products themselves so they can't say exactly how a product was handled or produced and need to cover their bases by placing the "made in a nutty facility" label? Maybe. But a disclaimer on every product?
I'd love to hear from them about this. I know they have a gluten-free program, why no nut-free section?
