Dear Ms. ---:

Thank you so much for contacting Necco for your allergy concerns.

Conversation Hearts are all made on dedicated lines and do not contain any nuts or nut derivatives. We do however recommend that if your child has severe allergies that you do not allow him/her to have the small cellophane pouches as these are packaged in numerous areas of the facility. We take every precaution to insure that the lines are free of any allergenic materials but this particular packaging configuration is the riskiest. The best option is the 1 oz boxes that are available almost anywhere and the loosely packed candies in bags.
If we can be of any further assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us again/

We have to inform the public we do have nuts and other Allergens in our facility but the products below are all done on dedicated lines, separate rooms.

And these do not contain any nuts or tree nuts

Necco Wafers, Conversation Hearts, Canada Mints, Gummie Coins ( Cherry & Cinnamon ), Candy Buttons.

Sincerely,

Theresa Denis
Consumer Correspondent

Thanks for the heads up, Susan. By 'conversation hearts', do you mean those pastel coloured ones with 'I love you' and 'Be my valentine' printed on them?
