I noticed that Annie's changed their packaging on their Bunny Grahams and Cheddar Bunnies to remove a statement about being made in a shared facility. I contacted the company to make sure, and this is what they responded with:

Quote:Thank you for taking the time to contact Annie's Homegrown. We did recently change the way we label our packaging. The Bunny Grahams and Cheddar Bunnies are made in a shared facility that also processes products that contain nuts,
however, they have never been made on the same equipment. We used to list that it was "made in a shared facility..." however, this statement was causing confusion. We decided to only label if products are made on shared equipment with any of the top eight allergens. However, complete information is always listed on our web site. For more information on nut allergens for all of our products please visit the following link:

Annie's Homegrown always fully discloses all ingredients on the
ingredient statement and are happy to answer any questions that will help consumers decide what products they can safely consume due to dietary restrictions.

Thanks again for contacting us. We hope that you will continue to enjoy Annie's Homegrown products.

Best regards,
