News Flash! Allergy Hour, the supermarkets and what to do?

alarm-clock-artIf any of you lovely people are on Twitter tonight from 8.30pm it’s #allergyhour – the topics for tonight are allergy safe Hallowe’en treats and the biggie: strategies for ensuring supermarkets act on our needs.

It comes after I discovered to my horror that Sainsbury’s (at the very least the stores near me) have discontinued DS-gluten free bread in favour of their own brand stuff – so NO egg free, gluten free bread at all now on their shelves. In this pic not ONE bread product is egg free.

DS-gluten free has already suspended production of some of its pizzas (see here https://yesnobananas.wordpress.com/2012/11/09/same-old-same-old-pt-ii/) after the supermarkets stopped stocking them, and Kinnerton was forced to stop production of its nut free milk chocolate bars for the same reason.

It’s a slippery slope… the question is what we can do about it?

Join in the debate on Twitter tonight from 8.30pm-9.30pm and bring any other questions to the party! Follow @allergyhour and tweet using the hashtag #allergyhour to take part….
