Very troubling story in the Washington Post today!  Looks like sesame has been added to the list of allergens subject to labeling laws, and in response several companies, including Wendy's, deliberately have added sesame flour to their buns so they don't have to worry about cleaning for cross-contamination.  I know I'll be writing some letters this week!
