Newbie post here. Was excited to try using some hi ratio shortening for the first time after reading all the raves about it. I bake all our cakes due to food allergies. Received my 3lb tub of CK hi ratio shortening today, only to discover that although the ingredients are fine, there is this statement on the package:
Made on equipment that also processes wheat, milk, eggs, soy, peanuts and tree nuts.
Unfortunately, this cake is also supposed to feed 2 kids with allergies to milk, eggs, peanuts & tree nuts! I left a message with CK to ask for further information about what this means but haven't heard back... has anyone used CK brand shortening to make frosting/cakes for kids with allergies to milk/eggs/nuts? Any feedback on your experience? Of course I will need to make my own decision in the end, but I figured it doesn't hurt to ask. I would have purchased a different brand had I known!
Thanks in advance!
