I just received a note from ds' school regarding the list at snacksafely.com. One of ds' biggest reactions was to a Kraft product because they did (do?) not label for shared lines. I'm very surprised that even with a disclaimer they are not concerned about having food on a "safe list" that can, and does, cause reactions.  :disappointed:

I see snacksafely two ways -

One to take a gander at allergy friendly food and decide if it meets my strict requirements.  I blow of Krapt listings.  But have seen others worthy of research.

Two - I see it as a decent tool for parents who are looking for options because of peanut or tree nut bans.  I don't care if you eat Krapt around my child, but I do not let my kid eat it because the risk is high.  So while I am worried about DS consuming a may contain, I am less worried about a may contain around him rather than a blatant contain, kwim?

I do not see Safe Snackly as an open opportunity to feed my child because it is vetted. Food still must come from home for my child to consume. 
DS1 - Wheat, rye, barley and egg
DS2 - peanuts
DD -  tree nuts, soy and sunflower
Me - bananas, eggplant, many drugs
