Anyone know if Gummi bears are safe for PA/TNA? I sent the company an email but haven't received an answer yet. I'm talking about the "original" gummi bears in the gold package, made by Haribo.

I do not believe these are safe. Trolli are safe, as of last year.

MCMOM,

Did you ever get a response back from Haribo? How crazy is it that we had an open house last night and a parent brought in a bag of these that had the individual bags in them. The teacher looked at me as if asking if this is okay because we have a no eating in the classroom policy except what I bring.

I looked on their website but I don't know if I am comfortable with their labeling because this is another country.

I'm not sure about Gummy Bears, but we had some Gummy Worms, and they had a somewhat hidden "May Contain Peanuts" warning.

No, I didn't get a response from them.

I am a bit confused b/c when I look at the Haribo gummi bears I don't see a warning label on them..why are people concerned?

I am concerned because they are a candy, they are a german company, and not everyone labels their products. There are many gummi candies out there that do have warnings therefore I will not take my chances unless I know for sure. Candy is not a big deal for us because to me it is just not worth the risk and there are much healthier alternatives. BUT kids will be kids..lol.
