Thank you for helping to keep the classroom a safe environment for all the students!
What to know about peanuts:
Food items can contain ”hidden peanuts.” If a product is manufactured on equipment that processes another product with peanuts, there is a risk of cross contamination. Many food manufacturers voluntarily label their products with a warning if cross contamination is a risk.
Ingredients can vary brand to brand. While one brand of an item is safe, another brand may contain peanuts.
Manufacturers can also change their recipes or manufacturing process, making what was once a safe product, no longer safe. While the ingredient label would change, it’s up to the consumer to read the label each and every time they purchase the product.
THE BEST APPROACH IS TO ALWAYS READ THE INGREDIENT LABEL CAREFULLY!
