DelMonte Sloppy Joes Sauce - Good Sauce But Beware: Contains Anchovies

Review by wjk898 on 2012-09-17
Del Monte's sloppy Joes sauce is a good neutral sauce for bland upper Midwest style sloppy joes because it has the right combination of tomato products and just as important, it doesn't have added barbecue or other specific flavorings or lots of sugar like most other products do (blah!)

BUT, if you're allergic to fish products like I am it has Worcestershire sauce which contains anchovies. I didn't know it and ate a ton of it and had an allergic reaction.

More people are allergic to seafood than to peanuts but from what ya hear you wouldn't think so. If you have allergies other than to peanuts, be sure to read the ingredients on the can of anything you buy. Who'da thunk there was Worcestershire sauce in a sloppy joe sauce?

Interesting point. The brief "research" I did shows about twice as many people are allergic to seafood than peanuts.

Seems like something like Sloppy Joe sauce should contain a warning, as I wouldn't expect to find anchovies in there.

The can of Del Monte Sloppy Joe sauce I have right in front of me says:
CONTAINS FISH (ANCHOVY) in bold print right below the ingrediants. I believe that is a warning. Nothing fishy about the labeling.
