I have been passing over product which state they may contain an allergen we are avoiding. Sometimes the label states the product was made in a facility that processes products which contain the allergens and we have passed those over, too.

It has me thinking though because, if I know the facility processes the allergen only on another floor, I tend to feel a little safer using the product. Am I being hypocritical? What is the likelyhood of the allergen travelling? Perhaps I should be investigating those product s with vague may contain statements as I may be able to purchase them as well.

What level of risk are you comfortable with?

I might add that we never eat the allergen without an auto-injector at hand because no matter how hard you try to be safe, there is always a small risk.
