Because of spam, I personally moderate all comments left on my blog. However, because of health issues, I will not be able to do so in the future.

If you have a personal question about LI or any related topic you can send me an email at I will try to respond.

Otherwise, this blog is now a legacy site, meaning that I am not updating it any longer. The basic information about LI is still sound. However, product information and weblinks may be out of date.

In addition, my old website, Planet Lactose, has been taken down because of the age of the information. Unfortunately, that means links to the site on this blog will no longer work.

For quick offline reference, you can purchase Planet Lactose: The Best of the Blog as an ebook on or Almost 100,000 words on LI, allergies, milk products, milk-free products, and the genetics of intolerance, along with large helpings of the weirdness that is the Net.

Sunflower Seeds May Contain Dairy Items

Dairy in Sunflower Seeds? I haven't seen that warning before. But here's the Dallas Healthy Trends Examiner news article with the warning.

Certain varieties of BIGS Sunflower Seeds have been voluntarily recalled by the manufacturer. A healthy snack, BIGS brand sunflower seeds are sold nationwide at convenience stores, gas stations supermarkets, sporting goods stores and US military commissaries, and BIGS Original Salted & Roasted Sunflower Seeds subject to recall are sold in the Dallas Metroplex.

Ryt-way Industries LLC has voluntarily recalled its BIGS Original Salted & Roasted Sunflower Seeds because of an undeclared allergen. The recalled BIGS Salted & Roasted Sunflower Seeds may contain dairy items, although dairy is not listed in the ingredients and a dairy allergen warning is not printed on the label. Sunflower seeds are a healthy snack that are not generally known to contain dairy, so it could be a danger to those with food allergies.

Ashland Frugal Living Examiner added a few pertinent facts:
Ryt-way Industries has recalled BIGS Original Salted and Roasted Sunflower Seeds sold in 5.35 oz packaging. These recalled products have "best by" dates of 30May2011 and 31May2011 on them. The upc code number found on the bags is 896887002196.

Consumers affected by sunflower seed recall can return the recalled BIGS Original Salted & Roasted Sunflower Seeds for a full refund. For more information, see the BIGS Sunflower Seeds website or call 1-877-722-7556.
