If you are interested in working on labeling please post here and/or contact me so you can get in touch with others who are working on this. As you may or may not know, labeling for "may contain peanuts" is not necessarily done the same by every manufacturer. In the U.S. the manufacturers who do label with "may contain peanuts" do so voluntarily and by their own standards. While I commend the ones who are working to label because of this allergy. I would like to see a uniformed labeling standard, without this, one would never know if you could trust a label or not and would still have to go through the "contacting the manufacturers" process. Do you think it should be a "made on the same line as" or "made in the same facility as " or "cross contamination addressed" type standard?
