                                          • Contains milk (mozzarella cheese) and wheat (sandwich thins). Sandwich thins can be a hidden source of common allergens which include, milk,
                                            peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, fish, shellfish, soy, wheat, and sesame.
                                          • Sesame can appear as an ingredient in foods where it might not be expected
                                            (sandwich thins) and may be included in ingredient statements as “spice” or
                                            “flavoring.”
                                          • If not serving immediately, store sandwich thins and tomato mixture
                                            separately. Keep tomato mixture cold at 40 °F or lower.
