ok the ingredients list of this cereal is all vegan;<br><br>
Wheat Flakes, Oat Flakes, Raisins, Toasted Wheat Flakes, Nuts (Raw Coconut Chips, Roasted Whole Hazelnuts), Sunflower Seeds.<br><br><br><br>
but in the allergy section of the pack it says; contains wheat, oats, hazelnuts<br><br>
and then; may contain barley, rye, other nuts, sesame seeds, <b>milk</b><br><br><br><br>
would you say it was still suitable for vegans though?<br><br><br><br>
i would say yes because i assume it just means the equipment processes other things and there may be slight traces so it doesn't matter...<br><br>
but i was wondering about everyone else's stance on this.

This seems to come up regularly, and most people here seem to agree with you. These types of allergy warnings are just there so severely allergic people know that this vegan product was made using equipment that sometimes also makes non-vegan products. Most vegans around here seem to be ok with this.<br><br><br><br>

Or, to take a more cynical view, to protect the company from liability in case an allergy sufferer has an attack attributed to the product.

In the UK this used to be the case but the government has stepped in to curb this type of reasoning. It is often down to individual trading standards officers that can force a company to put these warning on their products.
