Dannon Flavored Yogurts are just not Haram, but have inedible ingredients too..!!

The daycare provider that my kids goto said that they love Dan-O-Ninos and hence asked me to supply them for snack times. Though I had already instructed her to inform me about just any food they are eating which are not provided by me, I have to remind it again it seems...!! Anyway, thinking that Dan-O-Ninos are kosher gelatin based, I searched in net but found confusing statements. I thought to give them a call and a mail. Result, Had to file a BBB complaint against them now. Why? Here's the reply mail. Note down the highlighted sentence. I ask, How dare they add a inedible ingredient in baby food??????????????

Thank you for contacting the Dannon Company concerning Gelatin.  The gelatin used in our products provides the proper consistency and texture for the blended style yogurts.  It is certified K Kosher because it is derived from the pure, inedible collagen of beef hide.  If you cannot eat the animal gelatin, I would suggest that you would try one of our traditional yogurts: Plain, Oikos or Lowfat Flavored, which do not contain any gelatin.
