It’s that time of year again! The 2014 Holiday Edition of the Safe Snack Guide has arrived just in time for your Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s Celebrations!

Though the individual sleeves were clearly labeled as containing the Peanut Butter variety, this could have  led to unthinkable consequences had the error not been discovered by an observant parent before the treat was given to a child.
