A few months ago, Morningstar added egg and milk protein to some of their products, updated the ingredient list and removed the tiny label that said "100% Vegan" from the back of the package. People who used it because their kids had allergies to egg or milk had no warning. The only way to know about the change is if you read it on the label. They've most likely been feeding this to their kids or themselves for 3 months with no idea what was making them sick unless they thought to re-read a label they had no reason to expect had changed.
If a product specifically markets itself as being free of an ingredient people are commonly allergic to, or have religious/moral reasons to avoid eating, should they be legally obligated to put something large and obvious on the label if they start putting that ingredient in out of the blue?

Ever heard of the saying~Buyer Beware!!!
IMO~ People should ALWAYS check the labels and never ASSUME or be lazy about something as serious when it comes to food allergies. Death of Common Sense in America.
Consumers need to be aware of what they are CONSUMING at all times.
