Allergy Information

Peanut, Tree Nut, Egg, Milk, Soy Wheat, Fish, Shellfish, Sesame and Sulphite are not present in our facilities. We use cloth gloves for food h andling, not vinyl or latex.

ALL PRODUCTS AND FACILITIES ARE COMPLETELY FREE OF ANIMAL AND GLUTEN PRODUCTS. We take allergy information very seriously. Since our manufacturing processes are free of certain allergens, our policy is to obtain a completed “Allergen Checklist for Food Suppliers/Manufacturers” from the raw material suppliers. This form requests information about the following allergens:

Egg/Products
Milk/Derivatives
Peanut/Derivatives/Oil
Tree Nuts/Derivatives
Wheat/Derivatives (Gluten)
Glutamates (Glutamic Acid, Glutaminic Acid)
Fish
Shellfish
Soy/Derivatives
Seeds/Seed Products (Sesame, Sunflower)
Sulphites
Preservatives (BHT, BHA, benzoates)
Tartrazine (FD&C Yellow #5).
This Allergen Checklist requires suppliers/manufacturers to declare whether these allergens are:

1. Present in the Product (specify type and level)
2. Present in Other Products Manufactured on the Same Line
3. Present in the Same Manufacturing Plant.
The Allergen Checklist also asks if the supplier/manufacturer has effective procedures to avoid cross-contamination with the allergens not present in the product but noted in 2) & 3). Suppliers/manufacturers checklist also states that if for any reason there are any modifications in this product regarding allergenic components, they are responsible for updating their records and notifying Concord Confections Inc. immediately.
