Update to Safe Snack Guide: May 22, 2014

Pretzel!

Please note that we have removed a number of products from the Safe Snack Guide:

  • Shoprite ABC Cookie Squares – removed due to changes in manufacture/labeling/disclosure.
  • Righteously Raw Products – removed due to change in disclosure: manufactured on lines where coconut is also processed.

A note about coconut: Though the FDA considers coconut a tree nut under FALCPA regulations, it is actually a fruit of the palm tree, not a nut in the botanical sense. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI), most people with an allergy to tree nuts can safely consume coconut, though you should discuss this with your allergist before trying.

We strongly urge you to discard your current copy of the Guide and download the latest revision:
