Allergen Information, Nestle Toll House, Simply Delicious Morsels
I wrote to NestleToll House about their new product and it’s allergen-free-ness and this is what they said:
"Thanks for your interest in our Simply Delicious Morsels. Our Simply Delicious lineup is free from the 8 major food allergens. Per labeling regulations, if any of the 8 recognized allergens are in our morsels, they must be listed in the ingredient statement by their common name. Also, there will be a cautionary statement at the end of our packaging ingredient listing if the product is made on the same line, or in the same factory as products containing a recognized allergen. It's recommended that you always check the label before purchasing."
