I wouldn't. I figure if a company is too lazy to clean machines properly, I will not buy their product. To me this is different than a " made on shared machinery" . In actual practice - it probably means shared machinery, but this statement on products just pisses me off.

The "may contains" statement would stop me.  Although I would avoid it anyway since it has soy in it.

My bag only says under the allergy info: "Manufactured on the same equipment that processes tree nuts". Nothing about wheat on here. Also I've been eating handfuls all week without issue and I'm pretty sensitive. If anything any stomach aches are from eating too many at once!

Maybe in the year since this was discussed, they have changed manufacturing practices?  Or just decided not to mention it on the bag?

Looks like they still have the "may contain" statement.  Still says this on their website:

lease check the ingredient statement carefully on every bag purchased. All of the BROOKSIDE items contain Milk and Soya (from Soy Lecithin). Our items may contain Peanuts, Wheat, Almonds, Cashews, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, Hazelnuts, and /or other Nuts not mentioned. Products do not contain sulphites.

I would call and get more info. Just because it DOESNT say "processed in/with" does not mean it isn't.  May contain is 100% voluntary which is why i would call for clarification about same lines, same warehouses and cleaning procedures!
