Does anyone know anything about these? The specific individual packages *I* found didn't have a "may contain" warning on them. They are made by [b]Brachs.[/b] I've personally found a great deal of their candy to have warnings on them wrt peanuts and treenuts. Not sure of their manufacturing practices. Don't know if their labelling is cautious with regard to may contains, processed ons, or shared equipment.

My youngest's teacher is doing a academic activity involving these and says her lesson plan is [b]set[/b]. She will not be changing it. She has given me the option of taking him home, allowing him to remain and sit alone at a different table with another activity or participate with the provided materials. (With my permission of course.)

This is K-5.

BTW, I got a phone call this morning asking me if he could carve pumpkins (seeds). I was told if he couldn't, I could take him home. Probably was called because I've told them before, that if an unsafe item would be used [i]no matter what[/i], I would be forced to remove him from the classroom. Can't speak for anyone else, but in our situation, the pumpkins aren't a threat. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] Generally, they have been accomodating. Just not sure how I feel about this. I was also told in the context of this discussion [i]"kindergarten is not mandatory"[/i].

No, I do not have a 504----no written plan. Long story. My oldest (4th grade) has his food allergies covered by OHI under his IEP. They attend the same school. I just can't figure out why if they can accomodate in a particular way for one child, why can't they for another, particularly in the same family? Without forcing me to have a written plan.

edit to name specific product. Although wondering if I even had to? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
