    Why do food processing companies put real crab meat in the imitation crab meat package?

    I was shocked when I read the ingredients label of an imitation crab meat product. The label showed that there was crab meat (among other ingredients) in the package. I am highly allergic to shellfish. So, if I had eaten that "imitation" crab meat, I could have easily ended up in the hospital.

    I can not answer your question, but I can appreciate your concern. You raise a very valid issue. As one who is allergic to Penicillin, I have been very amazed at the products that contain it that one would not expect. It is lucky for you that you chose to read the ingredients!
