I have no nuts or nut products in my home as this is not in my comfort zone. However, I can imagine that if someone did have nuts in there home they would be more cautious and aware than a product made by a manufacturer. Therefore, I don't think the hypothetical warning would apply.

We don't have nuts/peanuts in our home.
We do allow *may contain* purchased items - but I don't eat them.
Also, for picnics, etc., if we bring any *may contain* items they are kept separate from the foods that I will eat. If it needs to be kept cool, it will still be in the cooler, but sealed in a bag or something.

We do not have any "may contains, made from factory, or contains" in our house (my comfort zone). I feel that if I won't let my son eat it coming from a factory, why would I allow him to eat something if my daughter just finished making a PA sandwich an hour ago in the kitchen. It would be worth the risk and it wouldn't be fair.
I also feel this way about my son eating at someone else's home.

Our home is not "nut free" so I guess everything that dd eats here at home could be considered "made in a facility that also makes nut products." However this doesnt mean that dd will ignore package warnings. Many times I feel as though products are labeled for liability purposes rather than consumer safty and others are not labeled well enough at all!! (Just my opinion).

We keep nothing in our home that Cade can't eat. I like to feel that there is at least one safe place for him to be at all times. I just feel like we would be taking a risk.
I don't feel like I can "preach" to others about keeping him away from peanuts/peanut products if I myself am not doing it at all times. Even though I know that those who keep peanut products or may contains in their kitchens take every precaution I would have to consider it a "made in a place that..."

Our whole house is peanut/nut free too. I would never forgive myself if Sariah got into something that wasn't safe.

My DS is MFA. Our house is free of all foods he is allergic too. Too much risk to have it in our home.
Have A Great Day
