Brilliant news! Well done.

am so glad you pushed. if they have accepted liability does this mean a change of label or warning? if not, this needs to be more wildly known.

am so glad you didnt give up and pushed with this, and that they have finally accepted they are at fault.

I didn't see any of your earlier threads about this, but I'm delighted to hear that they have admitted liability.
The attitude of the restaurant chain and the local authority is shocking.

If you blog about it, I will Tweet. As will most other MN Twitterati. wink

There is a MN blog area, but I dont know anything about that. I have a wordpress blog. They are pretty simple to set up.

But I think you might get more of an instant following here.

I'll tweet, do anything to help.

Glad to see all the hard work and perseverance paid off - and thank you on behalf of all of us. Hopefully situations like yours where you take a stance and don't let go until decency (although clearly they could have been much more decent every step of the way) will change how food safety is viewed and help all of us

Blog away and I will tweet, have dairy free children myself

ilovemydogandMrObama Sat 16-Feb-13 15:59:45

I don't get Twitter, I really don't, but have a dairy allergic/soya allergic child. Is it a known brand or the restaurants own?

Had a battle once with Waitrose about their non labelling of non packed bakery goods. They got rather snotty and said that weren't under any 'legal obligation' to provide information, which is actually wrong as they have to give notification of allergens with milk and soya being such.

Marking my place to see the link to the story. Well done OP!

freefrommum Sun 17-Feb-13 00:46:46

ilovemydog sadly they don't legally have to list ingredients or allergens for bakery goods currently but that will change in 2014 with new EU legislation. This will also affect cafes/restaurants etc.

ilovemydogandMrObama Sun 17-Feb-13 10:13:07

Yes, I know that there isn't a legal obligation, but the context was that DS grabbed some bread and needed to know whether it had soya in it. There was no list of ingredients anywhere in the store and I was concerned about a reaction.

Am hoping that with the horse meat scandal that supermarkets will be more responsive as far as accountability and that people are reasonable in wanting to know what's in their food and where it came from! smile

freefrommum Sun 17-Feb-13 17:53:46

Completely agree. I've never understood why or how bakery items were excluded from the labelling laws - seems ridiculous to me! Roll on 2014...

ClaireOB Sun 17-Feb-13 18:32:10

Well done for keeping going on this!

Hazelwhirls Sun 17-Feb-13 20:06:37

Thanks for your perseverance with this BB - reassuring that we can make progress even when there isn't a food sample. It's been a good week for food allergic people - particularly in the middle of 'Horsegate'.

This is shocking! Well done for getting something done, they should be punished more though.

It's ridiculous what some places do. Weatherspoons puts butter on their sides of vegetables, I asked for a side of plain veg for DS and he'd eaten half before I noticed but they're allowed to do it even though its not on the menu because it says it contains dairy on the allergy info (which I didn't look atconfused). And how a bowl of veg smothered in butter is only 65 calories ill never know

I remember this - well done on persevering. Very pleased you got a result!
