What About Milk Traces

Here is also the warning that soy may contain traces of peanuts, wheat, milk, rye and other tree nuts.

Clif Bar is another company billion-dollar industry. They are everywhere in the US. This is one of the biggest vegan selling products on the planet. If you’re a billion-dollar company, you source anything from another supplier and they also work in a factory that uses the same machines where they make whey protein or whatever.

As a rule, workers clean the line, but it still may contain nanograms of diary products. Someone who has a dairy intolerance may have diarrhea and then that company will get sued if they didn’t say that the product may contain traces of dairy products.

Any product in the factory may contain a cockroaches foot or a rat down I guarantee you if you pick fruit from the orchard and eat apples someday you’re gonna get a little worm in it. Does it mean you’re not a vegan anymore? No, it doesn’t.

So “may contain” is legal loophole companies do to protect themselves because some people will sue anyone for anything.
