I am confused. I think I have seen on these boards that Sunkist fruit snacks are not safe for PA people. Out of curiosity I checked the label at hte store yesterday and didn't see any mention of PN or TN. But, it did say "Distr. by General Mills." I thought General Mills was a label we could trust so why do people consider Sunkist fruit snacks unsafe?

I came home with a package of these about two months ago. In the store I did not see the warning but when I got home I re-read the package! The paper is very shinny and hard to read because of different colors on the design. It did say May Contain...
I return the package to WalMart for my money back.

Maybe we are talking about 2 different kinds of Sunkist fruit snacks. The ones I saw were in a box. I'll check the label again the next time I see them. I was more concerned that I was correct in trusting General Mills--even if it was a "Distr. by" rather than actually made by them.

The bag I had was a foil zip lock style - very colourful.

Sunkist fruit candies have a warning on them.
I saw them at a Linens and Things store. They are not fruit snacks. They were in a box like you would get chocolates in.

Just re-raising this because I bought some and called yesterday and was assured they were safe, I generally buy GM products by label read alone, but d/t reading some conflicting things I thought I'd call and post as well. I bought the mixed fruit kind and a couple convenience bags of character ones at the checkout line. All labels look fine (if you call preservatives and dyes fine) and I was not cautioned about any of them by the rep I talked too. Just interested if anyone uses these without hesitation (for example- take a new batch on an outing) or if you use them on the more cautious side or not at all. Thanks for any opinions.

I trust General Mills labelling - but I'm in Canada, not sure if there's a difference.
