\"may contain peanuts\" vs \"manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts\"
Does anyone know the distinction between these 2 warnings on labels?
We allow our son to eat something that says "manufactured in a facility...", but if it says MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS, we don't let him have it.
Does anyone else follow this procedure?
Our thought is that May Contain Peanuts is a lot more dangerous-(the potential for actual peanuts is greater)...
He has never reacted to something that is "Manufactured in a facility..."
Any feedback would be helpful...I'm trying to explain the distinction to moms at his preschool (who provide a snack 3 days a week), and I was hoping to find more information to explain this to them!
THANKS! I'm so glad I found this board!
