Hi,
Looking for safe gummy worms for a class project. Found the names of safe ones (Brach's and Trolli) but unable to find them in the store. Found Walgreen's brand which says it is a product of Canada. It doesn't appear to be labelled for cross-contamination (e.g. no "may contain" warning on it). I guess I would like to know about Canadian companies. Do they have to label?

as far as I know, no, they don't *have* to label, but most do.

This link will take you to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency website, and their pages on labelling and allergens in food:
