FAQ about Jelly Belly jelly beans (website)
If I am allergic to peanuts, can I eat Jelly Belly jelly beans?
We do not use peanuts as an ingredient in any confections manufactured in any of our plants. However, there are a limited number of confections that we offer that are packed in our facility but are produced by other companies, and some of the facilities they use also process peanuts. Therefore, please look for the term “Peanut Free” on packages and bulk bin labels to ensure that the product is peanut free.
For those with multiple sensitivities, please be aware we process tree nuts in our U.S. plants. See our Tree Nut FAQ.
NOTE: On occasion, other companies repackage our products in their own production facilities. If our product is packaged and distributed by another company, it will be noted on the package. Please check with the repackaging company regarding possible allergen exposure. In addition, licensed goods that bear our name, but are produced by other companies, may contain peanuts, tree nuts, milk, egg products and/or other allergens.
