Canadian vs American Mini Oreos

I am wondering whether the Mini-Oreos that are exported to Canada are produced in the same facility as the ones dispensed to US stores.

I am trying to understand whether Nabisco/Kraft in the USA is not accurately labeling for cross contamination or if the oreos are actually made in different facilities for the different countries.

This discrepancy is bothering me a lot and making it difficult for me to trust Nabisco/Kraft labeling.

I would appreciate it so much if someone in Canada would respond on the board (my email address is out of date and I don't know how to edit it). Anyway, if someone gets a chance, please let me know where the Mini- Oreos are manufactured and who distributes them. I'd love the bar code too so I can call and inquire from the US about the particular item being sold in Canada.

Thanks.

kstreeter,
The mini-oreos have always had a warning of "May Contain or May have come in contact with" as far as I remember.
I have never been able to buy them here in Canada so far.
Hope this helps.

I believe the problem arises from the fact that there are no warning labels in the States, while there's one in Canada.
If they are the same oreos, then the US labelling cannot be trusted.
Am I right?

The problem is that customer service in the US is sure that there is no chance of cross contamination for the ones in the US. The person I spoke to couldn't really answer about the ones sold in Canada. That is why it would be helpful to have a bar code and the location where the particular package was distributed from. Not really anyway to know if the US ones are mislabeled - or if standards are different in Canada than in the US if we don't have a package from each country to inquire about. So, if anyone in Canada is willing to jot down the bar code and location of distributor of a mini oreo package in Canada, I would appreciate it. Then I can pursue it with Nabisco. Thanks.
