Update to Safe Snack Guide: March 21, 2013

Please note that we have removed a number of items from the Guide due to manufacturing and ingredient concerns. We have also added a number of products as well as expanded our Easter product section for your convenience.


We have removed two items from the Guide due to manufacturing/labeling/disclosure changes:

  • Health Valley Organic Multigrain Toaster Tarts
  • Health Valley Organic Multigrain Cereal Bars

We have also removed the following item because it contains shea oil as an ingredient:

  • Hershey’s Hugs

Though shea oil is considered a “highly refined” nut oil and as such is not required to be disclosed as a nut ingredient under FALCPA regulations, we are removing this product because it does not meet our criteria for inclusion in the Guide.

We strongly urge you to discard your current copy of the Guide and download the latest revision by clicking the link below.


We have added a number of products from Wrigley’s Starburst, Skittles and Life Savers families and have added 7 commonly available products to the Easter Section.
