Does anyone know if this candy is safe for a person with PA.

I would assume not, as they make many nutty filled chocolates. However, I do recall, prior to learning about labelling and that it is voluntary, usung the solid mini santas/ I never called to check(didn't know at the time to do so) and they had no warning, but some other products did.
Might be worth a call. Perhaps they do some solid items on a dedicated line. becca

All of the Russell Stover products I have seen in Canada say 'may contain nuts'. Not sure about in the USA though.

This is the reply i received from Russel Stover,
Thank you for your interest in Russel Stover Candies. Many of our candies do not contain nuts, however our candies are produced in a facility that does process nutmeats. We are currently in the process of updating our labels to reflect this information. While we have specific and rigid quality procedures in place to help prevent cross contamination, it is always best to consult with your physician before consuming any product in question.

The label on my box of Russell Stover chocolates states: ALLERGY INFORMATION: PRODUCTS HAVE BEEN PRODUCED ON SHARED EQUIPMENT WITH TREE NUTS AND WHEAT. To me this seems to clearly state that peanuts were not involved and that they have structured their maufacturing to avoid peanuts for some of their products. I have not contacted the company for detail.
