Seasonal Candy - Read the Label Every Time

With the Easter and Passover season upon us, Anaphylaxis Canada would like to remind everyone to always read the ingredient list and precautionary statements (e.g. May contain), whether you are purchasing a product for yourself, your child, or to share with others. Be careful not to rely solely on a “free-from” claim on the front of a package for important allergen information.

Of special note, for those with peanut and tree nut allergies, please be aware that there are currently several Easter products that have a “peanut-free” claim on the front of the package and a “May contain tree nuts” warning on the back.

If you have any questions regarding a product or ingredient/labelling information, kindly contact the manufacturer directly.

For tips on how to read a food label please visit us at
