Loblaws Canada No Name French Fries-Allergic To Milk? Avoid These!

By Christys

Loblaws no name crinkle cut french fries
upc# 0 60383 69148 6
 
Nowhere in the ingredient list or on the package does it state that this product contains milk. IT DOES!!
After my 10 month old son almost goes into anaphylactic shock due to a severe milk allergy, I researched the product and discovered unless it states “FRESH CUT” the fries are made with a paste that contains milk. In Canada it is mandatory and REQUIRED BY LAW to list the top 8 food allergens on the package, milk being one of those. Me and my family of 6 will never purchase any product with Loblaws on the package ever again.

    Thanks for the information, I didn’t know that. I will start looking for ones that say fresh cut from now on.

    Did you contact Loblaws about this? If you have not I would HIGHLY reccommend calling them and telling them what happened and that you want the matter resolved immediately and be sure to spread the word to everyone about this product!

    No Name products have been in the news way too often. As the saying goes:”Too much news is bad news.” I don’t trust the brand and never buy anything by it.

    Wow, nice that the company found this and replied here.

    So Christys, hope your child is fine - Did you find out what it was that he got affected by, since it wasn’t the fries?

    It would be nice if you posted an update… and maybe an apology/retraction… some comment.

    Something like this happened to my Mom a while back she is severely allergic to Wheat, (she goes into anaphylactic shock) when she has any of it, but anyway I bought these Generic brand “wheat free” potatoe patties,(not loblaw) and nowhere did it say on the package that there was wheat in them, but they sent her into anaphylactic shock and she was in the hospital for ages (good thing we get carecard’s!)

    I hope you son is okay!

    Wheat allergies are even more common than a lot people think.

    @ Loblaws - thank you for replying and clarifying the misinformation posted here.
    @ the OP - at the minimum, an apology to Loblaws - and an explanation on how you “researched the product and discovered unless it states “FRESH CUT” the fries are made with a paste that contains milk”.
    Otherwise, your post just discredits everything as a troll board.
