Noted and signed, even though I don't consume Hershey products anymore. Once I started actively reading labels in the grocery store, my list of what I could buy there plummeted to almost nothing.

Thank you for the info Kathryn. Lately I've been drinking lots of Green&Blacks organic cocoa which is sold here in the UK. It's a pleasant brew, but I'm now wondering how safe it is to drink!
