FACT: Sometimes the ingredients of a product may change or a precautionary allergen statement like “may contain” is added or changed. The ingredients may also differ depending on the size or format of the product. For example, regular size and snack size versions of a candy bar may have different ingredients or precautionary allergen labelling warnings.
It is important to read the ingredient label carefully from start to finish, including any “may contain” statements, on all product sizes and versions, even if it has been “safe” in the past. Learn how to do the “triple check” and call manufacturers directly if you have any questions on the product ingredients.
