Our RXBAR Plant bars are made with plant-based ingredients. However, they are made in a facility that also produces animal derived products (i. e. milk, eggs).
We take quality control very seriously and strive to remove animal derived products & allergens from the line to avoid cross contamination. While we process RXBAR Plant separately and take great care with cleaning procedures, a low risk of cross-contamination is always a possibility. The "may contain" statement is of equal value to other precautionary labeling such as "manufactured in a facility" and "produced on the same equipment" and should not be interpreted differently. There is no difference in the likelihood that an allergen, outside of those stated in the ingredients, is present. We updated this wording on our packaging to allow customers to make an informed decision when consuming our products.
Those who have allergies or intolerances should always consult a health professional before consuming our products.
