Jelly Belly products are all "made in a facility" and I am guessing that the flavorings used for those candy canes may come directly from the CA facility that Jelly Bellies are made in- thus the warning.
ALL of their other candy canes check out OK- and we have used them without any problem.
(Just for reference sake, we are among the most conservative on the boards as far as comfort with labeling.)

We use Spangler. I check the lable and use only the peppermint minis and regualr size. Dd has eaten several, and I have contacted them and posted elsewhere their allergy policies. Forget where now. becca

Spangler candy canes are SAFE. I spoke to them and received an e-mail. They have many flavors but I stick to the peppermint just in case. If you pull up safe peppermint you will see the thread on this or you can go to the web site for Spangler and see the allergy questions. When I called them they said no chance of cross contamination.

Allan for me as well. I completely trust the name. I have called the company numerous times and have always felt very confident in them. If there is any chance of cross contamination in any way, they will declare it on label.
Good to hear Spangler are ok too. I was little iffy as they were distributed by Regal and I NEVER feel compfortable with them. DS had a bad reaction to undeclared egg white in suckers last year distributed by them. This year however I did notice that Extreme suckers have a warning for peanuts and egg! yay!

Apparently, Spangler includes a packet of Jelly Belly jelly beans in the box of Jelly Belly canes - DONT EAT THOSE, as they are from Jelly Belly, which DOES manufacture a peanut flavored jelly bean, last I heard. Spangler told me, however, that the jelly belly and Spangler canes are made at Spangler with no peanut, tree nut, dairy or egg ingredients. I pulled and am attaching the email they sent me a few months back - you may feel more comfortable giving them a call for an update as well. Also, I usually buy from their website, as I am wary of companies that buy candy in bulk and re-package it - they may be repacking peanut items as well. Happy Holidays!
Andrew,
The Lemonhead Lollipops and the Jelly Belly canes are free of dairy, eggs,
nuts, and peanuts. I do not know about the Jelly Belly jelly beans. They are
in the packet when they arrive at our plant. We just place them in the box
of canes. You will have to check with the Jelly Belly company about these.
If you have any other questions just let me know. It isn't any trouble, it's
just part of my job. And anyway I love to be able to tell people about our
candy and it makes me happy to be able to let them know that they are okay
for children with certain allergens and sensitivities.
