I used to eat these green giant bags of veggies..they have snow peas, red peppers, and potatoes in them. I am scanning the ingredients today and sure enough "chicken meat and juice"<br><br><br><br><br><br>
HUHHHHHHH? In veggies? I was so mad I had to come and tell you guys to always make sure to read packages.

It didnt really have chicken in it. It's amazing how literal you have to be to make a point.</div>

if it didn't have chicken in it, why did it say on the ingredients that it did?<br><br><br><br>
you aren't making sense.

It said "chicken meat and juice" on the ingredients. But I did not see any bits of chicken whatsoever in the food. That's what I meant. If I had seen any chicken, obviously I would not have eaten it. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/thinking.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":think:"><br><br><br><br>
Also, I do not think that buying a "Garden Vegetable Medley" means reading the ingredients but unfortunately it does now.

CafePress has a tee-thirt that says "I'm vegan, I read labels, I'll try not to block the aisle". I don't have it but thought it was appropriate!<br><br><br><br>
Pretty much every packaged item I buy gets read carefully; even items that USED to be veg. safe are suddenly filled with strange "new and improved" ingredients. Grrrr... I feel your pain.<br><br><br><br>
I'm thinking that Green Giant Veggie Medly is the same one I almost bought for my kids 'till I read the label. You're right, even the purty picture on the package looks like just plain ol' veggies and even though we all know THAT can be decieving, still...WHY do veggies need "chicken pieces"?

Disney: I've had that happen to me... With eggs, honey, etc. Don't you hate it? Yeah, so goes the lesson: read your ingredients. Every time.

I recently bought a box of chocolate cookies at the co-op. Somehow I just <i>assumed</i> they were vegan because I bought them at a HFS. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/blush.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> Never looked at the ingredients until I was halfway through the box. Butter? Urp! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/inquisitive.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":stinkeye:">
