Anyone know if this one is ok? Dd's teacher is teaching senses and has a "tasting" time. She sent me a list of things she usually uses with the option to change things if necessary. LemonHeads are on it. We don't eat them and I don't see them in grocery stores. Had trouble finding them on the 'net and couldn't find info. Anybody?

They're made by Ferrara Pan (sp) which I believe is based in Chicago.
I used to love them as a kid. I've never given them to DS, though.

I called them recently and was told not to feed them to my PA child. I believe I saw a warning label on them when I was in a Walmart not long ago.

I am almost positive that the are made in a facility that manufactors peanuts. At least the last time I checked. The teacher should have the box, go into the school and read the label to be sure.
Hope this helps.

I finally located some in Target. Nope. Shared facility.
Thanks for your help.

Here is my response that I got from Fererra Pan (thanks for the company name, btw!)
We can tell you that we do process and pack peanut and tree nut items
is
the same building, but do our absolute best to segregate them whenever
possible. The Lemonheads are processed in a nut free department.
However they are boxed on shared equipment. Prior to putting any item
on the equipment we conduct a full allergen clean. But please also
understand that our packaging department is many thousand square feet
in
size. Even if we are packing the bags on a nut free machine, the
possibility that nut items are being run on a different machine in the
same department may exist.
We hope this is helpful.

I looked at boxes of these and other Ferrara Pan candies earlier this week and there wasn't a warning on them!
