pWell I am happy to say that we had an absolutely safe PA halloween. We had a 2nd bucket waiting for 3yr old ds when he arrived home and we just switched them. He never said a word. He wore gloves (he was Mickey Mouse) and had not a single hive! Yea!/p

pMegans mommy, the pixie sticks are made on shared equipment with peanuts. I know this because my dd`s teacher in previous years used to pass out M and Ms as a reward. Since that wasn`t okay this year, she asked me about pixie sticks. I bought the bag and they looked fine. However, for some reason I decided to call the manufacturer (can`t remember why) and it is on shared equipment with peanuts. Maybe that is why she had the excema (cross contamination)./p

pHi Carefulmom,/p
pI had always thought Pixie Sticks were made by Wonka/Nestle in a nut-free facility along with Nerds, Runts, Sweettarts, etc. I will have to contact Wonka/Nestle again, as I was quite certain they were safe unless manufacturing conditions have changed the last year or two.
