Thankfully, from the very starting soy was listed as an ingredient within the Melty Four Cheese and Meat Pie’s allergy info accessible to prospects. Mister Donut has additionally retroactively added a discover that the Melty Four Cheese and Meat Pie comprises no meat in addition to a hyperlink to the apology assertion within the product’s description on its web site.
