My wife, she is so good about this stuff, noticed this morning a new allergy message on my highly PA daughter's candy this morning. The Kit Kat bar packaging said, "Allergy Information: Manufactured in a facility that processes PEANUTS." No more Kit Kat's for her.

Everyone might want to double check. I am posting this on the General Discussion board so more people will see it.

Before any Canadians worry, I want to point out that the Nestle's Canadian Kit Kat bars are still in a nut free manufacturing plant.

Makes me miss the time we lived in Port Huron, Michigan and could just go over the bridge to Sarnia, Canada...

There are so few candy bars that we can purchase for our egg and pn allergy son. This is disheartening. The warning is new however, the risk of exposure has probably always been there. Now we know.

I have noticed this warning but does anyone know anything about Rolos? My son likes those but am wondering if they are safe.

When my kids have been eating the product all along, and then suddenly the wrapper appears with the warning, I honestly ignore it and let them have it explaining why the label is on there and they have had it in the past, so it is fine. Sometimes I wonder if they do it for legal purposes only.

I posted this once before somewhere here in a discussion about Kit Kat bars. Seems most people here felt they were safe, but I have always reacted to them by getting an itchy throat. Often, minute cross-contamination will do that to me and I just assumed they were unsafe even though there was no warning on the label.

I know I'm in Southern Ireland but Rolos
are labelled with a "May contain" on the wrapper so I don't give them to Orla.
Kit Kats are still safe here, I bought some
yesterday so if anyone wants me to send some
by post I would be delighted to.

Cath,
The wrapper on the Rolos here does not contain a warning. I guess I will be calling just to see and I will let you know what I find out.

MkRuby- Thanks, I many times do give my son an item if he has been eating it all along and then the warning May contain shows up. i was thinking I was a bad Mom. However, wif we are travelling we avoid 'May contain" foods.
