Just bought a container of four varieties of "ice cream accents" at Bed, Bath, & Beyond - made by Xcell International, Corp. I called (630-323-0107) and spoke to a CSR named Peggy. She was very allergy aware - she has a family member with PA and she has bee sting allergy. All of their sugar-based sprinkles and decorating shapes are made in a totally nut-free facility. The only ones which are not are their chocolate or cappacino varieties - and they are labeled as such on the container (I saw those at the store, too). They have a website - [url=""][/url] which shows all their products. I emailed them to ask about other dessert products which they offer, and will post when they respond. Hurray for another safe treat and allergy conscious company!

Watch out-Betty Crocker sprinkles are not made by General Mills. They're made by signature brands. I have called and they say the cake type sprinkles are safe but NONE of the ice cream toppings are.

Thanks Gale. I have called them myself, and cross referenced here, and my info agrees with yours. The cake decors, etc... excepting the ice cream toppings are all safe. The ice cream toppings are in somewhat different packaging as well, which helps. becca
