Are Kemps Ice Cream products safe for those with life threatening reactions to peanut/nut allergies?

We have an allergen control program in our ice cream plant. However, we do NOT have a dedicated line for nut containing products. We recommend that you consult with your doctor regarding the risk.

At our ice cream manufacturing facility, we do not use any tree nuts or peanuts on the equipment that produces IttiBitz flavors. In fact, IttiBitz flavors are manufactured in a separate room at our Rochester location that does not handle any tree nuts or peanuts.

If additional information is required, please contact Kemps Consumer Relations toll free at 1-800-726-6455.
