Does anyone know the current status of Nestle's frozen poscicles (see the link to the ones I'm talking about with their nutritional info). Many say allergen, nut free and kosher!

I am not comfortable with shared lines when it comes to ice cream.

IIRC the last time I called Nestle about these, she said some are made on shared lines and they clean in between. The allergen statement only means that there isn't any of the allergen in the actual ingredient. She recommended we avoid the ice cream sandwiches and stick with the fruit type and the pushups, which, at the time, were made on dedicated equipment.

I looked at a few of the Nutrition pages and they say *nut* free, but they don't specify *peanut* free.

Is this information Canada or US specific?
In the past in Canada, ALL Nestle frozen novelties and ice creams have always had a "may contain traces of peanuts/treenuts" statement on them. Is this something new, if so, this is wonderful info.
Thanks

charlottesmom, I checked the Canadian web-site [url="http://www.nestle.ca"]www.nestle.ca[/url] and I cannot find nutritional information for those products. I think the Candian ones probably do still have warnings.

i think ill try the scooby doo pops in the ice cream version. i called last year but have still been too chicken to try them!! i was told that because of the pop shape they are made on their own lines. i asked about if the ice cream is made on shared lines and i believe she said the whole kit and kaboodle made in one area????? not sure though.

I spoke to a nice rep today and here's the scoop...
The only products that are run on a dedicated, non peanut, nut, egg line are the Push Up varieties. She confirmed no peanut, nut or egg could contaminate the push ups. If you have an issue with milk, some push ups do contain milk. There is a sherbert variety and an ice cream variety in the push ups including chocolate chip mint and cookies and cream!!!! We will be buying these next time I go shopping.
All other pops including the mini ice cream sandwiches are run on a non-dedicated line that does run peanut and nut products. She did say they take every precaution in washing down the equipment and the workers must wear different color caps and cannot leave the facility while the non-nut products are being run.
The ice cream line is 800-441-2525. It took me forever to find this number!

We have had the Scooby Doo Push pops for a while for my daughter, but we would give my son a philly swirl to make him happy. Glad to know that I can give him these now.
