[quote="emm7"]yes the position taken by BGW and fredrickw is my position too.
My impression is that "traces of" does not mean that the product recipe contains the animal product, it is just allergen information for those with severe food allergies that could be triggered by an extremely minute trace of eg. dairy remaining on a production line that was making eg. milk chocolate then washed down and then used to make plain chocolate.
Mine too !
Being vegan is a state of mind, doing our best, in an imperfect world. As long as we do our very best to be vegan, thats good enough !
