Though we have no relationship with the company, Kelley O’Brien, Krispy Kreme’s Director of Interactive, Digital, Social Media was kind enough to reach out to us with the following notice:
SnackSafely.com is a great resource for families on online community matters. That’s why I wanted to let you know of the latest and greatest information about our products.
Krispy Kreme continues to innovate and introduce new offerings for our customers. As part of that process, we are testing a new product containing nuts across the US at select locations.
While we have never been represented as ‘nut-free’ because some of our ingredients have always come from third-party manufacturers with nuts in their facilities, we wanted to make sure you were aware. If you visit, you will notice signage about allergens in and around our stores to make sure people with food allergies and sensitives are informed. Customer safety is Krispy Kreme’s top priority.
We’ll continue to keep you apprised of updates and news as we have it. If you have questions, let me know. More information can also be found at www.krispykreme.com/nutritionals.
We appreciate Krispy Kreme’s proactive outreach to the allergic community and urge our readers with tree nut allergies to heed the notice. Understand that it is almost impossible to prevent cross-contact in an environment where food products are manufactured in distributed locations and equipment is shared.
