Nuts to be used to Power Manufacture of Bounty & Charmin

I just noticed a headline shared on Facebook by a few food allergy friends (Sharon W and Jody F), and I have to pass it on: "P&G to harness power of pecans, peanuts and scrap wood to make Charmin, Bounty." That's right, folks, Cincinnati Business Courier reports "Steam to run one of Procter & Gamble's largest paper manufacturing plants will soon be created by using peanut and pecan shells, treetops and mill waste such as sawdust."As the mother of a child with life threatening peanut and tree nut allergies, I have to wonder how that will affect the products. Will Charmin toilet paper and Bounty paper towel now be cross-contaminated with peanuts and pecans? What about the air emissions from that manufacturing plant?
