Sorry, this article is only in French.

In short, it states that Kraft will close its plant in Laval, which currently manufactures Baker's chocolate, and Maxwell House coffee.

Baker's chocolate will be passed on to subcontractors.

Hi
Based on your information, I sent them an email tonight expressing my concern the product would no longer be safe for PA individuals.

Shoot. I said it was the plant in Laval, but it's the one in Lasalle. I misread the article.. The rest is ok though (well, ok is a relative term).
This was announced today at 17h04 and we're already on the case! Way to go, PA.com! ;-)

More info
In today's French paper, there was a mention that Baker's chocolate would be subcontracted to Barry Callebaut. That in itself is good news, because they make GREAT chocolate.
However, I do not know at this point whether the plant in Ste.Hyacinthe is peanut free or not.
I found the following info about the plant:
2950 Nelson Street
