Does anyone know if Hershey's chocolate bars are safe for people with PA?
Given their history with the almond bars and such, one would assume no, but on the bar itself says nothing about peanuts or anything.

Are they safe to eat?

We use the regular size bars, but we always check the lable first. The big size and the minis have a may contains lable, but the regular size are made in a diff facility. Cool huh?

I have found Hershey to be excellent with labeling. If there is no "may contain" or "processed in/on" statement then I assume it is safe.

ABSOLUTELY. They are great about labeling and I have had two extensive conversations with their customer service people. Their regular bars are fine. Even better, their semi-sweet morsels are safe. I was searching for ones that worked since Nestle went "may contain", and then Ghirardelli added peanuts to their plant. One caution: their Valentine's Day Jolly Rancher pops are a "may contain"-- said so right on the label (I almost didn't check, since fruit-flavored high fructose corn syrup is usually fine). It really had their customer service rep confused because it was probably April when I called and all her information about Jolly Rancher pops had NOTHING. She was really worried, but we finally figured out that it probably had to do with the special wrappers and manufacturing for holidays-- must be made in a different plant. However, from both experiences, I learned that their labeling is GREAT.
