This information can help you identify whether or not a food contains an ingredient that you need to avoid. Sometimes small amounts of an allergen can get into a product by accident, even though food producers take great care to stop this happening.

If there is a possibility that this could happen in a factory, the food label might say something such as ‘may contain nuts’.
