Was at Costco and saw a new product in their bakery section that had a very visible "peanut free" image on the front of the packaging. But because it was a Laura Secord product, I was skeptical. I read the ingredients and saw that while there were no peanut products listed, it had a hazelnut chocolate filling.
For me, it reminded me about the importance of reading labels regardless of packaging and that "peanut free" doesn't always mean "peanut and nut free" (it's so easy to get comfortable). It also reinforced how easily the non-allergic consumer can be unknowingly duped into purchasing products that they think are "peanut and nut free" for school, or for sharing with a peanut and nut allergic child.
