Dum Dum Lollipops in CVS Packaging - unsafe??
Well I was at CVS and was going to buy some dum dum pops and picked up a package of the "CVS branded" candy bags. I noticed that the packages states "PACKAGED in a facility that PACKAGES nuts". In my mind I thought the dum dums were safe. I'm guessing the CVS ones have the warning b/c they must package all their candies into the bages in the same plant?
So do you allow your child a dum dum if you don't know what "main packaging" it came from (I'm thinking Halloween, Easter, Valentines)? She had one at the hairdresser a few weeks ago and since Spangler states the regular dum dum pops are made on dedicated lines etc. etc. I thought they were all safe.
Would you give your PNA/TNA the CVS packaged ones since they are individually wrapped, although not individually sealed?
