How could this possibly have happened if they are produced in a peanut-free facility? Wow, this is very disturbing. it's hard enough to trust . . . this doesn't help.

Mistakes can happen. I'm glad they are recalling the products.

Yes, mistakes happen, but how, when the plant is *supposedly* peanut free? Unless there was an employee issue or something, there shouldn't be any peanut in the plant to "accidentally" get in there. This really bites because a friend of mine was getting us a box of nestle minis (and may already have bought/sent it). Unless there's a reasonable explanation I think my trust in Nestle Canada has gone way down and I will just get holiday candies from VNF and Kellie's.

I'm going to hold off making any judgements on the safety of Nestle until they explain what happened. I hope (and expect) that Nestle Canada will have something posted on their site in the coming days. If they don't, that will be very telling. The recall was just issued late Friday so I don't believe they've had time to react (interesting choice of words [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img].
I'll be watching closely as we live on Nestle's treats (large & mini) in our home.

I phoned Nestle Cda. The recording said it was one isolated case. I will call back on Monday and hopefully speak to someone.
Our family has been eating Nestle products for years. I was, and still am very confident with Nestle products and will always continue to buy them. I will though refrain from buying the little coffee crisp bars until this gets cleared up and then continue to buy them also.

One isolated case of someone reacting to peanut in a candy they made in a peanut free facility. I would be very wary and am losing trust until further explanation.
I mean, that just means that the peanut contamination found its way into a PA person's mouth. So, I would assume there is more contamination across the product line, just not consumed by a PA individual. KWIM??
How can peanut be in a nut free facility(peanut fee)? becca

Actually, I'm hoping they will make a public statement to the media. I don't actually expect to see it on their web-site because [i]personally[/i] I'm not at all impressed with their web-site.
I am surprised this has not been on the news AT ALL. Yes, it was one person that reacted. Yes, the person is fine. But this is Nestle - famous for being peanut free. I think we deserve an explanation.

The product was distributed on June 29/2005 in the small assorted bags until April 29/2006. Nestle notified the Canadian Food inspection and the Allergy and Asthma Association.
I called the BT tv station and they are going to put it on the air at 8:30am this morning. He was very happy I gave him the information.

noting. does this mean that the one isolated incident was indeed a reaction to peanut protein? Have they confirmed there was even peanut protein in the item? If there was, have they confirmed the source?
