I've always been very impressed with Dare products and their labelling for allergens. I was pleased to see that the allergens for Grissol croutons are labelled in bold, capital letters after the list of ingredients:

CONTAINS: WHEAT, SOYA, MILK INGREDIENTS AND SESAME
MANUFACTURED ON EQUIPMENT SHARED WITH SESAME PRODUCTS
BAKED IN A NUT FREE / PEANUT FREE FACILITY

This kind of clear labelling is wonderful. I was wondering if these croutons were safe for my peanut/nut allergic son and it was great to see that last line in clear, bold letters.

I think Dare is doing a great job. They have been working closely with Anaphylaxis Canada, which really shows in their labelling.

They won the Susan Daglish Award for Food Manufacturing in 2005:

And they are also a corporate sponsor of Anaphylaxis Canada:

So they have had help from those who know what they are talking about when it comes to allergies, and it shows. I hope that one day all manufacturers get this kind of help! :)
