MADISON HEIGHTS, Mich., March 11, 2020 – Kar’s Nuts values the health and wellness of all our employees and customers. In light of ongoing news regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19), we want to communicate that we are taking proactive precautions to ensure the safety of our stakeholders and products.
Kar’s Nuts operates under a very stringent Food Safety/Quality System and FDA surveillance. Although at this time, the FDA does not have evidence that COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging, we have elevated awareness among the factory personnel on Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) and hygiene practices as preventive measures. We are also educating team members on the Covid-19 Virus and sharing information as it becomes available from Center for Disease Control. Currently, Kar’s Nuts has not experienced any supply issues with raw materials for our products nor has our labor force been affected. We will continue to provide updated information as it becomes available.
