The Deal With Asda Food Labeling?

Does any one here know the deal with Asda? Most other manufacturers give the usual warning of may contain gluten and such, but Asda doesn't. Do you know if there stuff is safe. For example, their crisps; prawn cocktail has wheat and barley and is labeled such; surely there would be some cross contamination to their other flavors?

As for cross contamination this depends on many things and the 'may contain' is a voluntary label and one which is very frustrating for us, here's what the FSA say about food labelling:

And lastly don't be afraid to ask the manufacturer themselves and if in doubt...don't eat it.
