I found this forum while I was searching google for Peanut-Free Planet. I am happy to have found this site. However, after reading Brian Selwa, Heather Selwa and Peanut-Free Planet's posts I felt the need to comment. The Peanut-Free Planet site states that "All Products are Manufactured in facilities that are both Peanut Free and Nut Free!" However, on this site Peanut-Free Planet and Brian both posted that they, Peanut-Free Planet, sell products from Blueberry Hill. Brian and Heather from Peanut-Free Planet then admit that Blueberry Hill is not a peanut-free facility. (See Brian Selwa's post dated 10/22/07 entitled "Re: candy corn?" and Peanut-Free Planet's post dated 04/01/2008 entitled "Re: Blueberry hill now processed in shared facility." See also, Peanut-Free Planet's website for their claims and the items they sell.)
I am always disappointed when a company fails to deliver on its claims. I am especially disappointed in this case, because of the active participation of Heather and Brian of Peanut-Free Planet on this forum.
I recognize that we are all ultimately responsible for our own safety, but I for one would like companies to step up to the plate and stop making misleading statements and false claims. I intend to comment on the new FDA guidelines and I would encourage all of you to do the same.
