January 9, 2023 Allergen Information Update:


On January 1, 2023 sesame was added as the 9th major food allergen.

 

The bagels, cracked wheat rolls, Kaiser rolls, and heroes we serve now contain sesame. The hamburger and hot dog buns are made in a facility that uses sesame in other items.

 

The current HHH List of Allergens in School Food includes all information available to date. It will take time, but Food Services will make updates to the list as products are received with the newly required labels and information. 

 

It is important to note the Allergen List published on our website includes the data for the items the District intends to purchase and serve. Nutritional information for unforeseen menu changes and last minute vendor substitutions may not be identical to the list, therefore making the list incomplete.  

 

For your information, all food products must clearly say on the package if they contain any of the foods that are responsible for most allergies: milk, tree nuts, peanuts, soy, wheat, egg, shellfish, fish or sesame. However, manufacturers are not required to indicate on the package if a product may have trace amounts of an allergen or is processed in a facility with allergens. At HHH items containing any type of nut or having traces of nuts will not be purchased knowingly. 

 

Please be advised, the fresh baked chocolate chip cookies we sell are made in a facility that uses nuts in other items.

 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please call or email the Food Services Office.
