Hey all,

Remember when I posted about the Superhero Popsicles being a "may contain" item? Well, it turns out that Popsicle brand Creamsicles are no longer safe either. I bought some the other day (pack of twelve, and they come in three flavours--orange, raspberry, and blueberry), and they have a "may contain traces of peanuts and/or other nuts" warning on the label. So, they're fine for me, but for anyone who has a PA/TA allergic child, please, check the label first. This might just be a Canadian thing, the Popsicles in the States might still be okay, but please, check first, especially since the weather's getting warmer, and kids are more likely to want Popsicles now.

I just checked the box we have (it is for sugar free, however) and no warning is included - US manufacture.

Well, that's good to know......sugar-free Creamsicles in the States are safe, but regular Creamsicles in Canada are not. Wow....every time I post here, I discover something else that's safe in the U.S. but not here; even things that WERE safe just a few years ago. If I didn't know any better, then I'd swear that the Canadian government was working on a secret conspiracy to kill my friend, lol.

We have always avoided Popsicle brand products in Canada. They are owned by Unilever (Bryers) and have this warning on their website.What anaphylactic considerations should be made when consuming Unilever products?
Peanuts are used in various products produced at Unilever Ice Cream production facilities. Good Manufacturing Practices are followed at these facilities to minimize the opportunities for cross- contamination across products. Despite these practices, the risk of cross-contamination still exists. Based on this, precautionary nut allergen warnings appear on Unilever Ice Cream products eg
