labelling celery leaf in salad bags

Hi

 

I've been using celery leaf as a minority ingredient in salad mix for the last few years, but have recently discovered that celery is a listed allergen and needs to be labelled if it's an ingredient in anything. Does anyone have any experience of using celery leaf in their salad mix and and adding a warning label that it's in there, or of having a complaint from any customers who have suffered an allergic reaction from it?

Cheers

Jon

Celery leaf

I list all the possible ingredients throughout the year in my salad bags, including mustards as these are also an allergen; also people like to know what might be in there... :) I just use usual labels on an A4 sheet or roll, once you've got your logo & mix saved on a file somewhere you can either print yourself of get a printing company to do it for you v quickly. I also list the ingredients on my wholesale list

Cheers,

Kate

Thanks for that Kate, I hadn

Thanks for that Kate, I hadn't even considered mustards.., It would feel odd in a way putting on a label suggesting the possibility of ingredients that are not going to be in there at particular times of year, but aside from the allergen angle I guess it's a good way to highlight the diversity of the mix... Reckon I'll probably go for it.

Cheers again,

Jon

Labelling celery leaf

We label all year around whether there is celery/mustard or not. Cover ourselves by saying. "May contain celery or mustard leaves" bit like the processed food that says "may contain peanuts....
