Was just reading the ingredients on a Clif protein bar and noticed "May Contain Traces of Dairy", would that be considered to be not vegan safe? Do you purchase/eat products that state may contain traces of dairy/eggs?

It's up to you. It doesn't bother me, it's just due to shared equipment/facilities.

I don't worry about it, especially when it comes to companies like Clif that work to provide vegan friendly foods. I think there is an amazingly small chance of getting an unnoticeable small amount of dairy in a bar, and the warning is there just in case. I risk far more food contamination by using the same kitchen as omnivore family members, haha.

I agree. If I didn't eat anything with that warning my diet would be very limited.

The machines are cleaned down between usage of different products so its totally vegan.Its just there so people with allergy cant blame them if something happens.

Yeah, as far as I know that's what the deal is. They aren't using those ingredients in the product, but there are other products made in the same factory.

They should douse their equipment in fire between Non-Vegan and Vegan production.

I don't. I'm amazed how many vegans don't really care that there are traces of dairy. Have you seen turtle mountians website? And have anyone looked at soy Kaas website, the vegan cheese say's no casein and lactose free but contains dairy? But yet it say's VEGAN! Hmmm. I emailed them about that.

i never seen those products but its not like they just start pouring the ingredients in before cleaning down the machines. MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF DAIRY like "we might have missed a bit".

Ya I'm sure you have seen the products, it's who makes soy delicious and such. Yes they clean down the machines, but how well?

To each their own on this subject. I think it all depends where you are in the vegan lifestyle.

Sometimes it isn't cleaned very well. Look at nut allergies and people who have a reaction to foods that are made on the same equipment.

I think it's purely a liability thing. If an employee messes up and someone allergic tries to sue, the warning is always there. I don't think it's anything to worry about, it's to make sure there are no loose ends. My best guess.

A trace of milk in a clif bar is totally different than a trace of meet or animal rennet or something, if that was the case I wouldn't touch them. I think vegans are all really different when it comes to their opinions on this.

Clif is a company that is actually helping this whole "no animal product" movement along, along with all these new companies that choose to make animal free products, and for that reason also, I like supporting them. So I don't mind that there's a little risk there, because at least there's even the option of having it. You know what I mean?

Haha, sorry for going on there, I just appreciate vegan friendly companies, it means a lot to me.

Also, to put things into perspective, if you eat ANYTHING that says Natural Flavors, and you haven't confirmed they are not from animal sources you are taking a risk that you may end up regretting badly.
