Hi KT -

I trust Hershey's labeling - we eat the regular sized Hershey bars and the regular kisses. Other Hershey products have warning labels on them.

You still have to check the label each time -sometimes during the holidays the kisses are run in mixed batches, but when the do that they change the labels.

Hope this helps!

I am also PA and live in the U.S. I eat HERSHEY's milk chocolate bar and HERSHEY's special dark chocolate bar. The regular sizes are safe but the king-size bars aren't. They have 'may contain' on the label.

Don't take my word for it - check the labels every time.

If you get tired of Hershey's, order some "safe to share" chocolates from Canada. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
