According to their ingredient labeling, their is NO dairy, eggs or nuts in this product. I also know the 'produced in a facility with...' statement will be of concern to some. After speaking with them and knowing we are NOT anaphylactic to either soy or milk, I feel confident sharing these products with my kids.
To ease your own concerns, I suggest calling them yourself. I did, and below you will find the response I received.
They NOT only called me back, but emailed too! As an individual living in the customer service world, I give this company an A+ for response and assistance.
Like you noticed on our packaging, our Gaslamp facility does produce items that contain milk and soy. (These would be our White Cheddar and Cinnamon Caramel flavors). We have standard operating procedures to ensure that our Kettle Corn is allergen free, we just like to include this note so we can be totally transparent with our consumers.
At our facility we have 3 separate lines. Our Kettle line, savory line, and caramel line. They are always run at separate times, with Kettle always being the first item of our production schedule. This ensures that all products containing allergens are run after non-allergen product. (This helps us to ensure there is no cross contamination). Finally, after our production run of an item containing an allergen we conduct a full scale sanitation clean up.
We are in the process of working with the University of Nebraska to see how we can do more. We are so proud of our Gaslamp line and our ingredients and want to be able to share every aspect of that with our consumers. Our Sweet & Salty Kettle Corn is gluten free and we are in the final stages of having this product verified with the Non-GMO project.
Please let me know if you would like for us to go in to further detail about our procedures. We would love to send some product for you to review for your blog. We will have a new item in stores this Summer, Gaslamp Sea Salt & Olive Oil Popcorn that your readers maybe interested in. Please give me a call if I can be of further assistance 404-218-6604.
