My son is PA only, but we avoid may contain/contains tree nuts products since I am concerned about cross contamination.
The one product that I have allowed my son to eat is Costco bakery cakes, since I was told by the manager that they do not use nuts in the cakes, that they are on dedicated lines and that they are familiar with allergy and the PA question.
However, the last ingrediant on the label states almonds. When I brought this to his attention, he stated that this was in error, that it was almond extract and that they would correct this.
This was over 2 months ago. Does anyone else eat Costco cakes, are they in your comfort zone or not, and what responses have you received from your local Costco regarding this matter. I emailed them via the website, and have not heard anything back.
