I posted this in the "peanut" section but thought I would post it here too. I just went to 7-11 and they have a new flavor of hot chocolate in the dispensing machines by the take-out coffee and it is Snicker's Peanut. I am really concerned about the cross contaminiation possibilities. This is a limited time product, but how well will they clean the machines between flavors and all the mixes are right next to each other. Spills will also be a problem, I would imagine.

I will contact the Food and Drug Agency and 7-11 website and see what they say. :evil:

Thanks Pam. That's not good news. I often think of things like candy dispensers (where you have to put in 25 cents to get some candy) and wonder just how well cleaned they are between different sorts of candy. I never let my kids get candy from those because of the risk of cross-contamination. This sounds like the same thing. And who would know that there had been any kind of peanut-laced product in it previously, once the product has changed??

Anyway, I am going to lock this particular thread and link to the one in the Peanut section if that's okay, just so we don't have two threads going at once.
