I came across this company and have found they are very allergy aware. They have a 7 page document even goes into talking about cross-contamination. The allergies they list are dairy, egg, fish, peanuts, sesame, soy, sulfites, tree nut, and wheat. The list say which products the allergen is in.

I have the list in PDF form...not sure how to share a PDF??

Here is their website...

I went to a neighbor's party for Epicure last year and the allergy book was detailed BUT didn't list any may contains only if a top allergen was an ingredient in a product. When I emailed the company it turns out almost all tree nuts and sesame are processed in the same facility as spices and other packaged foods!!!! Maybe the company has re-structured???

The chart I have states if they are produced or packaged on a common production line. For tree nuts it states that they are not produced or packed on a common production line. However, the same chart stated that tree nuts are present in the facility.

Looking at the list closer the only allergen that is labelled may contain is wheat. There are some (only looks like the teas) that actually say manufactured in a facility which produces other products containing nuts. So... :cry: looks like they are unsafe since they are produced in the same facility with nuts.
