Are Magnum ice cream bars safe?

By mom23girls on Apr 16, 2013

Does anyone feel comfortable with eating the magnum ice cream bars? They have an almond variety but I can't find any info on cross-contamination.

Thanks for your help!

According to the Magnum website:

"It is Magnum's® 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 they will be listed inside the ingredient statement in plain language. We do not use the terms agnum's "Natural" or "Artificial Flavorings" to hide the existence of any allergens. We do not have dedicated production lines in our manufacturing facilities for products containing allergens. We have special handling procedures for all allergenic ingredients used in our manufacturing facilities."

The line about not having "dedicated production lines for products containing allergens" makes me a little nervous, but it does seem like they're making a real effort. Definitely check your labels closely!!
