Dear McCormick Consumer:

Thank you for taking the time to contact us.  We appreciate your interest in our McCormick products and welcome the opportunity to be of assistance to you.

We are pleased to inform you McCormick does not use tree nuts or peanuts in any of our facilities.

We are aware of special allergies and intolerances to certain ingredients such as the following:

Peanuts                  Fish            Soy proteins            Sulfites
Tree nuts               Eggs            Wheat proteins   Yellow No. 5 & 6
Shellfish                 Milk             Red Pepper

As a responsible food company, our company follows the U.S. Food Drug & Cosmetic Act regulations to ensure consumer safety concerning food allergens.  We declare these ingredients on our label in the ingredient statement.  Federal regulations require us to list sulfites if they are over 10 parts per million, so we use that as our label declaration limit.  Because we are constantly improving our products, we encourage you to read the ingredient statement on our packages at the time of your purchase.

In addition, we follow good manufacturing practices at our plants.  Our employees are trained in the importance of correct labeling and the necessity of performing thorough equipment wash-downs to eliminate cross-contact of ingredients.

We invite you to sign up from our website to be a regular “My McCormick” user and receive our online newsletter with recipes and cooking tips.

If we can be of further assistance, please call us at 1-800-632-5847, Monday through Friday, 9:30AM to 5PM Eastern Time.  If you wish to respond to this note by e-mail, please include your name and e-mail address.

We hope to have the continued pleasure of serving you.
