I know that Kelloggs Canada labels products based on the possibility of cross contamination. As an example, a product such as Frosted Flakes does not contain peanuts, but the label does say "may contain peanuts" since it is made on the same line as a peanut product (ie: Honey Nut Corn Flakes).
From reading threads here, I have read that Kelloggs USA does not label as well as Kelloggs Canada does (they use box codes? ie: KN, etc?). I was wondering if products made in the USA by Kelloggs USA for Kelloggs Canada would be labelled as well as those made by Kelloggs Canada (ie: cross-contamination possibilities).
Wel, I noticed something in the grocery store that seems to indicate that Kelloggs Canada ensures their products made in the USA are labelled properly.
I saw chocolate rice krispie squares (made for Kelloggs Canada and imported from USA) labelled as "may contain peanuts". They do not have peanuts in them, so I was wondering why they would be labelled this way. Then I saw that there was also a product called Rice Krispie peanut butter squares (Also made in USA). So it looks like Kelloggs Canada products made in the USA are labelled with cross-contamination issues taken into account.
I am not 100% sure, but seeing the warning label on the non-peanut product seems to show they are labelling with cross-contamination issues in mind (unlike other manufacturers).
