Update to Safe Snack Guide: September 22, 2014

Pretzel!

Please note that we have removed a product from the Safe Snack Guide due to changes in manufacture/ labeling/ disclosure:

  • White Rose Vanilla & Chocolate Ice Cream Cups

This product is now confirmed as being manufactured in a line that also processes tree nuts.

Thanks to Chandra Towers Blatt, our reader who recently called the White Rose consumer line and confirmed the details with their representative. We appreciate her efforts and the time she took to notify us of her conversation with the manufacturer.

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

Important Note:

White Rose is not a member of our Manufacturer Partnership program, and as such does not directly provide us with details regarding how the allergens we track are processed during the manufacture of their products. We are forced to rely on information provided during periodic queries to their consumer relations representatives.

Products listed in the Guide in bold face are by manufacturers that have joined our program and are listed on our Manufacturer Partners Page. These firms use our platform to disclose specific information regarding how 11 allergens are processed during the manufacture of their respective products, and in doing so go the extra mile to inform consumers concerned with allergen exposure.

In the coming weeks, we will begin rolling out a service that details how each of these 11 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat, soy, fish, shellfish, sesame, mustard, and gluten) are processed during the manufacture of each of our partner’s products.

If you would like White Rose to participate, we suggest you contact them directly:

White Rose, Inc.,
380 Middlesex Ave
Carteret, NJ 07008
732-541-5555

We also encourage you to contact the other manufacturers of your favorite products and request that they participate as well.

We realize this leaves the Safe Snack Guide without an ice cream alternative. Rest assured that we will continue the search for manufacturers with products that meet our requirements.

Once again, we thank our readers and subscribers for their diligence and feedback which helps us keep the Safe Snack Guide up-to-date between product surveys. If you have not subscribed to our mailing list for updates and product advisories, we suggest you do so by completing the form in the right sidebar.
