I was at a store in NH today and saw a new reese peanut butter cup ice cream from Breyers. It was in a smaller container (like a gourmet ice cream). I will try to e-mail/call for further info on cross contam!
Just wanted to give a warning!

Breyer's has been discussed here a lot. All of their icecream is run on the same lines. They state it has a thorough allergen wash in between runs and test for allergens. Also, if I remember, they run the non nut/peanut icecreams before the nut/peanut icecreams.
They've had some variety of peanut butter swirl/cup icecream for a long time. The brand name one with Reese's is new however.
They do not label for shared lines, they don't have to. They believe that their cleaning/allergen washing procedures ensure no nut/peanut allergenic proteins make it into the icecreams.
Most icecream manufacturers have this process/procedure/statement. Some companies label for same equip, some don't. That is, unless they claim to be peanut/nut free and are run on dedicated lines.
So...it's all about the individual comfort level with manufactured icecream. We run the gamut here --- some will not eat manufactured icecream, some will only eat certain brands, some will only eat the dedicated line/pn free brands (which if I recall only exist in Canada), and some will eat any manufactured icecream if the label doesn't have a warning on it. All depends on personal experience and comfort level.

Call Bryers. They have a good speal about their cleaning process. You need to hear it. They use fire hoses and blast the equipment, bolts and all for an extended time. Then do a test. Blah, blah blah
Please call them. It is kinda neat.

Hi Adrienne,
In Canada, Breyer's does add the warning "may contain traces of peanuts" to all of their ice creams (even though it is not required by law).
However, since they also have the extensive cleaning procedure here in Canada, etc I do still eat the Breyer's vanilla (even with the warning on th package) since they have such an extensive cleaning procedure. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
