I got excited when I saw Oh My Yummies crackers because right on the front of the package, it says nut-free. But upon reading the ingredients section, there is a statement afterwards that says something to the effect that, "while we do not use any nuts while making these crackers, individual ingredients may have been processed on the same equipment as nuts at their source". Very misleading!

That's pretty ridiculous that they would claim to be nut free and then have the distinct possibility of cross-contact for nuts!

If this is a Canadian product you can report it to the CFIA for misleading labelling. Recent labelling laws say that a product cannot claim free from an allergen and then claim traces of that same allergen.

anaphylaxis to tree nuts, peanuts, potato, wheat, sorghum; asthmatic, dairy intolerant, vegan
other family members allergic to to dairy, egg, peanut, peach, sesame, environmentals
