Nestlé Scorched Almonds allergen labelling change
Nestlé advises that its Scorched Almonds are no longer suitable for consumers avoiding wheat or gluten-containing ingredients, and/or peanuts.
Nestlé Scorched Almonds are now manufactured in Australia and carry the allergen statement “Contains milk, soy and almonds. May contain wheat, peanuts and tree nuts”. This product is no longer suitable for consumers avoiding wheat or gluten containing ingredients, and/or peanuts.
Nestlé Scorched Almonds were previously made in New Zealand and carried the allergen statement “Contains milk, soy and almonds. Made on equipment that processes products containing other tree nuts”.
For a period, Nestlé recognises both products may be available in the market at the same time. Consumers with food allergies are strongly encouraged to check the allergen statement of Nestlé Scorched Almonds following changes to the manufacturing.
Nestlé acknowledge there are limited choices of chocolate treats for those who have coeliac disease. Those avoiding wheat or gluten, may like to try Nestlé Melts, Choc Bits or Choc Chunks.
If you have any questions regarding these changes or you would like a copy of Nestlé’s Gluten Avoidance and/or Nut List, please contact Nestlé Consumer Engagement Services on 0800 830 840.
