Last night we had friends for dinner and they bought dessert: Chocolate Chunk Buttercream Bars from M & M. I had asked for a nut-free dessert when they asked what they could bring. Right on the box it says "May contain peanuts and/or tree nuts." Now I wasn't upset, because over the years, I've learned that people without allergies just don't understand how it all works, and I really don't mind skipping dessert. What did bother me, was they bought it because the clerk at the M & M assured them it was safe. She told them the warning was only on there for legal reasons, and that the product was fine for people with allergies. Further, she said they send that product out to schools etc, and that the schools were fine with it. They would have bought this in the Georgetown/Brampton area, so I just wanted to warn people not to assume treats at functions are safe just because someone says they are. I'm not sure how schools would be using this product, but thought this was worth posting.

That's upsetting, I would call the manager. I have found M&M to be excellent with regards to allergies, pulling their binder & files from the computer to double & triple check allergy info.

Wow.. :frightened
I would send a e-mail to the store and corporate HQ.

If what the clerk said was true, CFIA would want to know.
