Vegan Cake

My husband and child brought home a vegan cake made by Sweets from the earth. The Dairy-Free Chocolate Cheesecake was good. We have had their cakes before

I noticed the cake packaging had changed it had a sticker that said "Now Baked in a facility that is nut free". The website however still says that items may be cross contaminated with nuts. Under Ingredients it says "Baked in a facility that uses wheat and tree nuts." Dairy is the only allergy in our house, for the sake of nut allergic vegans or those with both nut and milk allergies I hope they figure this out.

UPDATE I recieved this E-mail:

To answer your questions, we put the stickers on the boxes. Up until three months ago, we produced all of our products in one facility.

We recently opened up a second facility, and it is completely nut free. We continue to produce our nut products at our original facility (which is now also dedicated gluten –free). So yes, we do make products with nuts, but they are made in a separate facility. We still have quite a bit packaging left from before we made this transition, so rather than waste it, we put the stickers on so that people will know we are now producing these items in a nut free facility.

Please feel free to contact me with any further questions.

Best regards,

Ilana Kadonoff
