Nestle candy made in UK

I found some Aero bars at a World Market store lately, but they weren't made in Canada. They were made in the UK. What are the labeling laws there? There were no allergy warnings on them, and they didn't say peanut-free, either. There were also some Cadbury things made in the UK. Should I wait until I find ones made in Canada?

I have a close friend who works for Cadbury and she does not trust even the Canadian Cadbury plants. I would be very cautious about anything made abroad.

Oh, wait.....Aero is made by Nestle. I'm pretty sure that it is only the snack sized bars that are made in Canada that are safe.

All Aero bars currently made in Canada and all Aero bars currently made in the UK are safe. [b]Always check labels[/b] as manufacturing conditions can change at any time. Nestle has great labelling in Canada and the UK.

Not sure why you don't trust Cadbury Canada. They have excellent labelling.

All are companies I trust for labelling. If it does not say *may contain* I will eat it.

There are some products safe in the UK that are either not safe here, or not available here. I shop at a little Scottish bakery that imports. It's pricey, but nice for an occasional treat.

Ange, please explain what it is about Cadbury that is untrustworthy.

yes.. I am curious too

everyone I know trusts Cadbury Canada.. we've even had two PA.COM members who did work at the Cadbury Canada facility (redtruck and thomas) and both were impressed by the allergy precautions in place. I have never heard any reason not to trust Cadbury Canada.

Erik, I don't think we got an answer the last time someone posted this -- and I think it was the same person.

I believe it was Ange who made these statements previously in a few other threads...once saying her sister worked for Cadbury and "just thought" it wasn't truly safe, then a male relative, then a female close friend. No other reasons given than 'just a feeling' about it not being completely peanut free, no details given.

I'm not saying that they're not nut/peanut free, just that their employees don't seem to think so.[/b]

Yes, they are processed on a nut free line, but he feels strongly that it can't be nut free until it's in a totally safe facility. I trust him because he sees this every day and feels strongly that the risk is too high.[/b]

Hi Ange,

You have posted at least 3 entries at PA.COM that Cadbury Canada chocolate is not safe. Then, when we ask you why, you never respond to anyone.

If you are going to tell everyone that Cadbury chocolate is unsafe, you need to give us [b]DETAILS[/b] why it is unsafe. If you keep posting that it is unsafe and do not give us any details, no one will consider this infomration as valid. Plus you need to be consistent, as in one entry it is your friend who works at Cadbury, while in a different entry it is your relative.

If a company is called "unsafe", we need to know why it is unsafe.

Plus your information about Aero bars is incorrect. All AERO bars made in Canada and UK are safe.

*********************************

We have had PA.COM members who have been in the Cadbury Canada plant and have told us how safe it is. Here is Redtruck's account:

Just to reinforce what erik has been saying about Cadbury, you can trust their labelling practices. About a year and a half ago, I did the roof at the Toronto Cadbury location and noted thier policies on nut areas vrs nut free areas... it included having to change smoks and hairnet and washing hands...but basically those who worked in one area rarely crossed over to the other area... in summary, they seemed very safe with the nut free products!

Nestle UK do a peanut free list on [url="http://www.nestle.co.uk/Nutrition/DietaryAvoidanceLists/"]http://www.nestle.co.uk/Nutrition/DietaryAvoidanceLists/[/url]

I like a fair few of their choccies and haven't had any problem with anything their list says is nut free.

Can't speak about Cadbury's: I haven't found a nut free list for their UK produce so I avoid them.
