Food allergy statement

As manufacturers and consumers, we understand your concern about potential allergens in the foods you eat

Our primary goal is to provide accurate information.

We believe this is best accomplished by referring to the specific ingredients listed on each product package. This is the most current information for your needs.

Questions? Visit our Ask Us About Our Food site.

Our products are labeled for the top 8 allergens:

  • peanuts
  • tree nuts (including coconut)
  • dairy products
  • eggs
  • soy
  • wheat
  • crustaceans 
  • fish

In addition, we label sesame, sunflower and mollusks.

We label for these allergens using CONTAINS and/or MAY CONTAIN lists located directly below the product’s ingredient list.

  • CONTAINS means that the allergen(s) is included in the product’s recipe. The allergen(s) will be listed in the ingredient list, and also in the CONTAINS statement just below the ingredient list.
  • MAY CONTAIN means that the allergen(s) is not in the product’s recipe but could be present as result of the manufacturing process regardless of our best efforts to exclude it. These allergens will not be included in the ingredient list.

Both CONTAINS and MAY CONTAIN mean that if you are sensitive to the specific allergen(s) in the list, no matter which way it is listed, you should avoid this product.
 
This ingredient and allergen information is for the package in hand. It is not intended for other packages of the same product. Ingredients may vary from one package to another due to product reformulation. If you have allergy concerns, please carefully read the ingredient information on each package.
 
We hope this information helps you.
