My son had a question about Edy’s Ice Cream and contacted them for an answer. Very proud of this boy!
“Dear Mr. Salvatore,
Thank you for your email requesting nutritional information on Edy’s® Slow Churned® Ice Cream. In an increasingly health-conscious society, we are always pleased to respond to our consumers’ questions regarding our products.
Our facilities follow all federal and state regulations with regard to food and food safety. We do not use designated lines for products that contain known allergens, such as nuts and wheat. We do, however, thoroughly cleanse, sterilize and rinse every part of the machinery used in manufacturing, especially parts where any known food allergens come in contact.
The addition of “Manufactured in a facility that also processes peanuts and nuts” is not considered mandatory by the FDA standards. If our vendors use this claim on the ingredients they supply us, we will include it on the packages containing that particular ingredient.
Thank you for your email. Although technical problems caused a delay in our initial response, we wanted to be sure to get back to you. Thank you for your patience.
K. Susan Kelly
Consumer Response Representative”
