I spent last weekend at the Perth Garlic Festival. There I learned that it's "chic to reek" and I received so many questions about what was happening with my CFIA labelling issue! I think it's great that so many people are following along with this issue. So here is the latest scoop.
It seems that I have resolved my labelling issue for the time being. CFIA responded to my corrective action plan and as it turns out, some words just need to be shuffled around on the label The word "cheese" is no longer off limits. YAY!!
Pamela Tournigny interviewed me about this issue for her latest blog post. You can read all about it here....
