Beware: The FDA requires warning labels on foods sold to the public. They are specific to require labeling that cites content of any of the 8 major food allergens. Most companies also warn when/if machines/spaces used during production were shared with such foods since even tiny amounts may have entered the product & may trigger a major reaction in some patients.
