I just looked at their website to check about sesame. This statement is on the bottom of every page of the ingredient list????? :?: :confused On their webpage click on resources, then on the left bar ingredients. Then in the center click where it says ingredient summary english. Here's the link, if it won't work to click on it you might need to cut and paste.

Thanks for the info. I think the allergy warning is a bit out of date regarding tree nuts, as they do not use any tree nuts in their facility:

We've Finally Gotten Rid Of All The Nuts!

For a while our staff was quite worried when we said all the nuts would have to go...

We are pleased to announce that as of June 15, 2009, we are going entirely nut free in both of our facilities. This is one of the biggest product policy changes since we made most of our products dairy free. We've been peanut free for several years now but this move will eliminate all tree nuts from our product line as well. On the down side, this will force the discontinuation of our lemon cranberry almond and double chocolate almond cookies but will open up our complete product line to thousands (millions?) of people with nut allergies. We will also be announcing a couple of new cookie varieties to replace the 2 we are discontinuing. More on that in a future post.

So at least there are no tree nuts.

The vanilla K-Toos cookies I bought at Loblaws say "egg-free" on the label. Though in small print, they also say "made in a facility that uses eggs".... hmmm....

So the question is.. is it safe for egg allergy individuals? (or soy? or sesame seeds?) Life is not easy with peanut, egg and wheat allergies!!!
