Basically anything made in a kitchen or factory that uses nuts in any of their food will carry that warning now (so that on the very very small chance of cross-contamination, they can’t be sued).  Ask your SO how allergic he is; frankly you’re probably fine eating things labeled that way and just brushing your teeth.  As someone with a nut allergy I avoid things with nuts, and avoid eating in restaurants that cook anything with peanut oil as it may be on their pans, but I eat things with the “may contain” warnings because otherwise I wouldn’t be able to touch a good third of the prepackaged food out there.

The Strawberry Cheesequake itself may not contain any nuts, but manufacturers add this disclaimer to reduce their liability. They are unable to control cross contamination either in the plant, the warehouse or the retail sites.

I’m not saying this would be safe for your SO.

my husband does. he went into anaphylactic shock once and almost died while we were dating. It is really serious we do not have ANYTHING that has to do with any nut in the house and you really do have to be careful when going out. When he went to the ICU a person made coffee cake and told us there were no nuts. One tiny bite and he was in the ICU for 4 days. make sure he carries an spi pen at all times.

My FI is anaphylactic to peanuts and tree nuts. We started dating in high school so it is pretty much ingrained in me not to eat these anymore, which is hard because I used to have peanut butter and toast every morning for breakfast!! While we were dating, I would still eat these things if I knew there was a 24 hour period where I would not see him, and I would take extra measures to brush, floss, listerine at least twice before we saw each other. Now that we live together, I don’t eat anything containing nuts. on occasion I will eat something that “may contain” but I am always sure to brush my teeth and wash my hands afterwards.
