Update to Safe Snack Guide and Allergence: August 12, 2015

We’re pleased to announce the addition of many products from new and existing members of our Manufacturer Partnership as well as clarifications to text that appears on our cover page.

New Partners

SnackSafely.com welcomes two manufacturers that have joined our partnership, now numbering over 50 companies. By doing so, they have committed to providing much greater disclosure regarding their processing of 11 allergens than is required by the FDA on the label.

Logo GOE 73x73Goetze’s Candy is a family owned company located in Baltimore, Maryland. Founded in 1895, Goetze’s Candy has been making sweet treats in the USA for over 120 years.

Changes to Cover Page

As you know, each product entry in the Guide is preceded by one of three symbols: a green checkmark, a green triangle, or a black bullet. It has become apparent that many readers are confused by the meaning of the symbols, so we have reworded their descriptions to provide more clarity. (Note: Allergence, our free allergen screening service, does not require these symbols as the allergen table for each product provides much more detailed information.)

We’ve also added an explicit statement to reinforce the premise that no food item should ever be given to a child with food allergies without prior consent from the parent or guardian.
