Nestle Canada is using labels on some of their products that actuually contain the image of a peanut with warnings written by the image.

Here is an exmaple of the packaging so you can see the warning label (on the top right of the packaging in the circle). This product is the "Smarties chocolate bar" which is not safe.

I also saw on the Canadian Nestle Website that said due to the overwhelming response to make peanut free candy you will start to see labeling peanut free with a promise (in fine print so I couldn't read it on the)back of individually wrapped bars. What a great Canadian company.

Here is a link to a pdf file outlining their "peanut free promise":

This is a great flyer I will give to my school since it is a handy list of nestle safe products!

take care

Does anyone knows if the products in the peanut free box actually also tree nuts free?

Thanks

We love our Nestle chocolates here too, and love that they have the candies with the "peanut free/safe to share labels".

I've noticed the chocolates with the peanut icon too, and really appreciate it - but I wanted to share a story about these.

My PA son's preschool teacher picked a pack of Valentine Smartie Candies with the peanut icon on them intending to hand them out during class (she knows that Smarties are usually safe for my son). She had seen the peanut and thought that this meant they were the "safe" ones, and didn't realise they weren't until she read the fine print around the edge.

I don't know if this is a mistake that other people would make (probably my fault for not explaining about what to look for more clearly - I had just told her that KitKats, Aero, Smarties etc. were usually safe), but it seemed to me that it could happen, especially if you were someone who knew that some Nestle chocolates are "safe" for PA, but you were not really familiar with all their products.

Now when I tell people about Nestle being safe I tell them they need to get the packages that say peanut free/safe to share on them.
