Nope. I have no reason to care since I have never (with one exception) used their products. If I did use them and like them then the packaging would no longer matter to me so either way it does not matter to me if they do anything about it.

We also like "box potatoes" once in a while. DH can make the mashed potatoes taste really good, and the scalloped and au gratin potatoes aren't bad either.
True, they're all high in sodium, but I have low sodium, so it's not a problem for me, and DH has no blood pressure problems, so we don't worry about it.

Science has come a long way, and I try to have an open mind about trying new things.
i use some of the ones u mention, but have found that zatarains are just way way to salty for me. understand they have come out with lower salt but haven't tried them.

You are right...They are quite salty. But as I said earlier, I tend to have low sodium.

We get by with a little help from our friends
