pI wrote an e-mail to Stonyfield Farm Yogurt. I was curious both about their yogurt products in general and about their chocolate flavored yogurt./p
pDoes anyone else worry about the SOURCE of the chocolate when it is a chocolate flavoring (like with yogurts, puddings, etc.)?/p
pAnyway, I got the response below. They didn't specifically answer the question about if the yogurts are produced in a nut-free facility, but said they are nut-free in general./p
pAs for the chocolate-flavored variety, I guess we'll be staying away from that from now on./p
p*******************************br /
Thank you for taking the time to contact us. We always welcome comments andbr /
questions from our yogurt lovers and are grateful when someone takes thebr /
time to let us know what they think of our products. /p
pTo answer your question, our refrigerated yogurt doesn't not contain anybr /
nuts or nut by-products. I can not guarantee that are vendor producesbr /
chocolate on dedicated lines or doesn't make products for otherbr /
manufacturers that contain nut or nut by-products. If I can be of furtherbr /
assistance, please feel free to contact me at 1-800-PRO-COWS (776-2697) M-Fbr /

pWe enjoy all of your yogurt products, but have just learned that our 2-yearbr /
old daughter has a life-threatening peanut allergy and we must avoid allbr /
possible traces of peanuts and tree nuts in her diet./p
pAre all of your yogurts produced on nut-free lines and/or in a nut-freebr /
facility?/p
pAlso, we enjoy your "Chocolate Underground" flavor yogurt too, but have beenbr /
told that the source of chocolate flavorings could be cross-contaminatedbr /
with nuts (i.e., the source of the chocolate is produced in a facility thatbr /
also produces nut-chocolate products). Is the source of your chocolate forbr /
this flavor produced in a nut-free facility?/p
pThank you for this information./p
