I understand that it is necessary to declare the type of tree nut in the ingredients breakdown, but in the following "Contains" statement is it also necessary to list the specific type of tree nut instead of Contains: tree nuts? I.e. Contains coconut.

In US you have two options to identify your allergens.

 

1.  In the ingredient declaration in parenthesis immediately after the allergen containing ingredient.  For example, "Water, Casein (Milk), Natural Flavor."

 

2.  Underneath your ingredient declaration with a "contains" statement.  For example, Contains: Milk

 

Some companies do both and depending on your label I would recommend both if you can fit both on there.
