I have never had a reaction to eating Breyers. 90% of the time I have eaten vanilla.
Although in recent years, I have not eaten Breyers as frequently due to Chapmans.

My pa/TN/kiwi allergic son eats Breyers all the time with never a problem. We buy:
Vanilla, chocolate, strawberry (and mixture of all three), vanilla fudge twirl, black raspberry, black raspberry chocolate chunk, chocolate chip, mint choc chip and in the past have had the new rootberry float flabor as well as the banana fudge twirl (can't find that one anymore though). We are in New York.

Recently, I was thinking about the ice cream that oozes out and down the sides of the cartons and the person stocking them. Do you wipe yours down as a precaution when you get home (even if you can't see any ice cream on it)? The person stocking might have touched the PB or nut ice cream and then your "safe" carton. I always pick one that isn't next to the any nut-containing cartons.

I bought some Breyers extra-creamy vanilla today. It was on sale.....the only choices left were vanilla, something with peanut butter and butter pecan. Since when has Breyers made a peanut butter ice cream?

I also saw a Breyers w/ Reeses. Breyers vanilla has always been in our comfort zone, but after seeing that- I don't think so anymore. DD is going to be so disappointed....

Has anyone contacted them to ask about their procedures for manufacturing? I'm curious to know if the flavors with nuts are made on the same equipment or not.

I wipe down icecream containers, as well as bags of chocolate or candy that are in the candy section with other candy that has nuts in it.

Right, it just depends on how comfortable you are with allergenic cleaning. We're so new to this that I'm not positive how I feel about it. It sounds like many PA people have been reaction free with Breyer's though so perhaps they're very careful. I grabbed this off their website. I'm waiting to hear back from Edy's/Dreyer's, a big brand around this neck of the woods.
It is a Unilever Ice Cream/Good Humor-Breyers policy that when any of the eight most common allergens (milk, eggs, fish, wheat, tree nuts, peanuts, soybeans and crustaceans) occur in any of our products (including Klondike and Popsicle brand products), they will be listed on the ingredient label in plain language.
Most importantly, if any of our products contain any type of nut or nut by-product, it will be listed on the ingredient panel. We do not use the terms "All Natural" or "Artificial Flavorings" to hide the existence of any allergens.
We also have special handling procedures for all allergenic ingredients used in our manufacturing facilities. Unilever Ice Cream/Good Humor-Breyers does not have dedicated production lines in our factories for product containing allergens. However, we do have a very strict allergen-handling policy. If there is an allergen concern on a manufacturing line, the machine is disassembled and thoroughly cleaned. This process takes several hours. Our historical results and process verification testing for allergens has shown that these steps are effective at removing allergenic proteins.
