Hi there,
I know prev. I have been told by Cadburrys if their labels have a "may contain" warning then obviously there is a risk of cross contam. However, does anyone know for sure if the individual easter egg chocolate with the creamy centres are ok?
Thanks!

With Cadbury's your best and safest bet is to read the label. If there is no warning, I would feel safe eating it.

If you are talking about the chocolate eggs that have cream (white and yellow to look like a raw egg) and the eggs are wrapped in foil, I do eat them. I usually buy them in three-packs because it's to hard to read the label on the foil.

Posted on the peanut allergy board:

Quote:
The 3-pack regular Cadbury Easter Creme Eggs are manufactured in a peanut-free/nut-free facility in England by Cadbury UK. They are safe. I have eaten them many times. They are imported to Canada by Cadbury.

The Cadbury Caramilk eggs are manufactured by Cadbury Canada in Toronto. They are unsafe as they are manufactured on the same equipment as peanut eggs (ie: Wunderbar eggs, etc). They have a may contain peanuts warning.

Just thought I'd add that with the Cadbury mini eggs, which are a big favourite in my house, it's also really important to read the label EVERY time...some are safe, and some aren't depending on where they're manufactured. The label will have a 'may contain' if there is a cross contamination risk
And the regular size Caramilk bars are peanut and egg safe :D (not sure about other allergens though).
