I was looking at Jelly Belly today and they had jelly beans that contained peanuts and the label still only said, "Made on the same equipment as peanuts."

Thanks for sharing Ashley. We've always steered clear of Jelly Belly b/c they have a peanut flavor. I would think it would be very easy for a peanut jelly bean to find its way into another bag. Then of course they have their mixed flavor bags too with the peanut containing ones.

Unfortunately companies print up many labels and bags and it might be a long time before there are any changes. I'm surprised those items weren't pulled from the shelves given the recall.
