\"May Contain Peanuts\" Statement
We need to work so that "May Contain Peanuts" always means the same thing. It is now up to each individual manufacturer to decide how to use it. It is also not a law so they are doing so voluntarily (we are grateful to the ones who are trying!) We need to work to have a standard for this "may contain peanuts" statement! The statement will help to avoid products that are labeled with "may contain peanuts" but we won't know about the other products that the company makes that do not have this label on them. They could be safe or unsafe still. A product might be made on a machine next to another machine making peanut products and become contaminated but because it was not made on the same line it might not be labeled with "may contain peanuts". We need to get the governments involved in this! Let's put together our resources and address this! Some of you have e mailed me that you want to change the laws regarding labeling. Keep using these boards and lets get to work.
