Is this Nestle Canada or Nestle US? I wasn't aware Nestle US had a peanut-free plant, and last I heard (maybe a week ago), Nestle Canada had reversed their decision to start making nut-containg products in their peanut-free plant. Nothing was said about them closing it down...

Well, this is NOT Nestle Canada, many of us worked hard on this issue and won a reversal form Nestle, they were not going to close the plant, they were going to begin manufacturing peanut products there which would make the five previously safe Nestle products unsafe.
Here is the e-mail I received explaining their reversal:
I am pleased to inform you that Nestl

The original 1-800 # provided is in the U.S. I believe the plant is located in Pennsylvania. We are new to all of this, as our 21 month old daughter was just diagnosed after a trip to the emergency room, via an ambulance. Needless to say, we were terrified and are now checking labels on everything. I was very disappointed after calling Nestle and getting the news of them closing the plant. Sarah's mom.

Can you post the 800 #? I'd like to call and see what's up. If they are closing a peanut-free plant, I'd like to voice my disapproval!

ok, I did a search and found my answer. I am pretty sure the Costco generic are safe, my dh bought them the last time, thank goodness as it was only in the last few months. I am bummed about this. Oh well another thing to adjust to.

I was under the impression that Nestle choc. chips have always been unsafe. At least every package I have looked at in our area has had a warning.
We use Hersheys or Kroger brand because I have called on both and am comfortable w/ their labeling.

It happened a few months ago (other thread notified us). It took a while to spread the new bags that were being manufactured differently. If I recall, someone on here called and asked about the change and it was a recent change in manufacturing.
I went out and bought 5 bags of Nestle semi-sweet chips as the new ones hadn't made it to my area yet. However, now they are in the stores.
Other safe semi-sweet or bittersweet chips are Guittard (peanut free facility, but tree nuts are in the facility. Bags are labeled to reflect any cross-x by shared equip) and Ghiradelli 60% chips.

Ghiradelli's extensive list of what is safe or not-safe, same facility, shared equip and traces. Their labeling on bags reflects this info, which does change...so always read the bag.
