Has anyone ever used Danncy pure vanilla from Mexico or ever been able to reach them to confirm it is safe for peanut allergic? I have emailed and called with no response.

The label says Ingredientes: Saborizantes Naturales (not sure what this means)

I have been given two huge bottles of it as a gift and would love to be able to use it in baking for my PA child.

There's an issue (not PA-related) with some chemical or plant that's often used in vanilla made in Mexico. I found information on it on the FDA's website, where they actually have some kind of warning to Americans about consuming Mexican vanilla.

It's coumarin that can be from tonka beans in Mexican vanilla.

I don't know about the type you mentioned specifically, but I do know that Mexican vanilla is the only kind we use. I'm not offering advice to you; I don't clam it's all safe. But we go to Mexico/have friends who do that we never have to buy the US stuff. It's so weak.
