Food allergies: Why do food manufacturers need to bother?
Food manufacturers need to know and communicate the ingredients and possible cross-contaminants in their food(s) to allergic people, as they must avoid the offending food(s) even in trace amounts.
It is a legal requirement for them to provide safe foods and to label food products properly. You can learn more about what this involves on this website.
