Discouraging!! Walmart brand baking soda & shredded cheeses are not safe for PA and TNA. Now when a relative says their cookies are"safe" I have to check to see what brand of baking supplies because I never would have thought baking soda could be cross contaminated. (PS. I live in central NY).

I've seen the Walmart shredded cheese with the warning also; it's insane!!! This is why I don't trust store brands. They manufacture so many of their products in the same facility that cross-contamination is all but guaranteed.
It's amazing how many foods have warnings now. Pretty soon I'll have to start checking the label on Pepsi! You never know right!?

I actually trust Walmart's Great Value because their labeling is the most detailed I've ever seen. I called them and they said they label "may contains" on any product produced in the same facility or same equipment. Their cheeses are produced in a facility that uses tree nuts and that is why the label is there. Customer service said they label so well because one of the family members has food allergies. If a Great Value product reads safe for nuts, that is because that product was made on a nut free production line and usually in a nut free plant. I called several times to see if I got a different answer, but was told the same thing every time. Yes, it is a pain that Great Value has warning labels in unexpected places, but at least you know that if one of their products reads safe, that means it is safe.

I totally agree with Jennifer. I would rather they label and trust them.
