Re: Check Ingredient Statements on Halloween Candy

I came across a funky one while going through DS' candy tonight. I knew Tootsie Rolls have milk in them, but I was curiously reading the label while snacking on a lemon flavored one (habit ). Ingredients are: While the condensed skim milk does meet the plain English requirement for FALCPA labeling, the whey in it would not (as it is not clearly listed as "milk."). I wonder if it gets off on the technicality that it has another milk ingredient with the word milk in it.

If whey were the only milk-derived ingredient in it, it would still have to list MILK either in parentheses after the word whey (milk) or in an "Contains: Milk" statement. However, in this case, the common name (plain English) word Milk has already appeared once in the label and FALCPA says that the allergen only need to be declared once and doesn't have to be repeated with each derivative. See #1 on our FAQ on FALCPA as a reference:...

One thing not noted in the article is to take care with candies that are repackaged (such as Smarties, Tootsie Rolls). Often, they are repackaged by third parties that also package items with common allergens, such as nuts. This is technically a labelling issue, but it is something to be aware of with candy.

Hi Yes - that is definitely an important point! We did include it as important point #3 at the top of this blog post (right above the image of the Snickers bar). It's worth restating again, though so thank you!

Re: Check Ingredient Statements on Halloween Candy

Colleen English Ross ·
Sorry, I think you misunderstood me. What I was talking about is different than shared lines at a manufacturer's facility. I am talking about when a third party repackages a product like Dum Dums for a store such as Target, CVS, etc. This is done separate from the manufacturer's facility. Even though the candy may have been free of allergens when made and packaged in a manufacturer's facility. These repackaged items, cross-contamination is introduced when the it is rebagged by a third-party.

Re: Check Ingredient Statements on Halloween Candy

Hi Colleen, I believe we are talking about the same issue. We are aware of the re-bagging issue--we included it under the Dum Dums/Spangler photo (second to last photo) and highlighted it as #3 at the top of the blog post: Quote: Quote: How parents choose to deal with this issue may vary. In our Halloween tips in other articles, we've shared ideas such as trading your child's bag of trick-or-treating candy for all safe candy, or for toys, etc. The tradition is sometimes called the Switch...

Hi Colleen! We do the same thing with all the candy that DS gets on Halloween. Due to the issues with repackaging there's no way to know if the safe candy has residue on them (or whether the residue is from the various home owners that I see snacking on treats as they give out candy ), we usually just give all the candy away and we either trade it out via the "Switch Witch" or we weigh it and give DS money for it. He's happy either way! Welcome to KFA , and hoping your loved ones have a safe...
