Found a great new line of allergy safe meat products:

Products:
Sliced Meats

This statement appears under the Benefits tab on the Piller's Benefits tab:

Just wanted to say that I emailed the company about these products, and they do make them on shared lines, at least with dairy and egg (don't know about other allergens). This is the reply I got from them:

The wieners are made on a line that also produces products containing dairy and egg.

Piller’s follows an Allergen Plan ensures that the few items we produce that contain an allergen are made at the end of the day, after the rest of our products. Following this, all of the equipment is washed, rinsed and sanitized. We have rigorous scheduling to ensure that there is absolutely no cross-contamination during all phases of production (blending, stuffing, cooking, packaging etc.) and this safeguards against allergens making their way into the rest of our products.

Furthermore, our QA department performs routine checks to ensure the plan is followed stringently .

After that I confirmed that the rest of the products are also produced the same way. I won't buy them, because I try to avoid shared lines right now as much as possible, but I know a lot of people trust companies with strict policies on cleaning/testing, so hopefully this product stands up to that.
