Cross Contamination

We understand the gravity of peanut allergies and the necessity to protect those who must maintain absolute avoidance of these legumes.

Peanuts are processed in the same facility, however, they are not processed on the mills making the butter, ever.

We also process other types of nuts, including walnuts, pistachios, hazelnuts, cashews, and pecans. 

Many other manufacturing facilities have very complicated processing lines and it is very difficult to do a thorough cleaning between ingredient changes. Our lines are extremely simple and a thorough cleaning is very achievable.

Other tree nuts, (pistachios, pecans, etc.) are processed on the same mills. The clean up between runs is much more than a simple "wipe down." It is a thorough cleaning. We have a documented Allergen Control Program to prevent cross-contamination between the different nuts and perform swab tests post-cleaning to ensure no residue remains. The Allergen Control Program is a part of the audited Food Safety Program.
