Are Pepperidge Farm Goldfish safe?

My two year old daughter will be at a b-day party tomorrow. We are bringing her own cupcakes but know that they will also be serving Pepperige Farm Goldfish. I tried to call Pepperidge Farm today to ask if the Cheddar flavored Goldfish have the possibility of cross-contamination w/peanuts but I called just after they closed. Anyone know the current info on this product?

American, Canadian, or elsewhere?

We've eaten them here in Canada and they have been labeled very well and I would consider them PA safe.

However, having said that, I have never called the manufacturer.

I am sure there must be a LOT of threads here, albeit older, re Goldfish crackers.

Also, perhaps [url="http://www.nuconnexions.com"]www.nuconnexions.com[/url] has a link to Pepperidge Farms or more information about them.

My Ds has been eating them safely for years we check the label each time. He's eaten many lately. He doesn't eat out of commen bowl with others eating from it though except at our home as we don't serve any may contains. If they are serviing other foods that aren't Safe I'd be careful especially as your group seems to be of little ones, right?

My son is 13

hope this helps.

The small, original sized ones are fine. If I remember correctly, the large ones are not safe.

My son eats the cheddar ones almost every day for snack at school. Let's pray they remove the partially hydrogenated oils soon so he doesn't need bypass surgery before the age of 20! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

I just spoke with the Pepperidge Farm people. They stated that the "traditional" goldfish are safe for my peanut allergic child to eat. This also includes the new graham cracker goldfish.

The new "sandwich snackers" cheese sandwiches and peanut sandwiches are made (or "filled") in a different location. The sandwich snacker crackers have warnings on the labels.

Hope this is helpful!

I spoke to Pepperidge Farm goldfish and I was told that the orginal size goldfish were safe. They are now putting pb on large fish. The company informed me that the fish and pb is made in a different area and should not cause a problem. But I wonder when they will start making a pb flavored goldfish?

We eat both kinds, but I am confused. P.F. told me that all of the goldfish were safe. Now I see that some are saying the large ones are not. Do you mean the large milk carton container?

I have one here and it does not have a warning. He has eaten them safely, but I don't like to take chances if these are not safe.

Renee, I think the "large" ones being referred to are these oversized goldfish crackers that are made into a sandwich, some with pb filling and some with cheese.

We also use the "original" goldfish safely. However, I saw snack packs with the graham cracker goldfish, and they had a "may contain peanut" warning on them. (This was in a PF multi pack of 9, that had 3 original goldfish, 3 of the graham and 3 of their mini chocolate chips.)

Thanks for clearing that up for me. I don't think I have ever seen the sandwich kind. Either that or I haven't ever looked for them.
