FYI... My son has severe PA, and TNA,. We are very careful about checking labels, and things and have never had a problem with manufacturers, until last night. We purchased the vanilla Ice Cream from dreyers, which says nothing about nuts of any sort, and online states they are Nut Allergen Free. My 3yr. old had a bad reaction and we had to go to the urgent care and get a steroid shot. Hope this will save someone else from having a reaction with this product/company.

Did he eat anything else within 4 hours of the ice cream? Could it have been something else? Send it in for testing to have them check it for the allergin.

Dreyers does NOT consider peanut oil to be an allergen. So even if they say nut allergen free a product could contain peanut oil or be cross contaminated with it. One of their flavors does contain peanut oil but it comes up when you select nut allergen free flavors on their website. I hope your son has recovered completely.

Thanks for your comments, and concerns. Yes he has recovered completely. But it just makes me so mad. You look at the labels and trust it, but now I know that you can't. not thinking at the time through out the carton after calling and complaining to dreyers. All he had had before that was a ham & cheese sandwich that I made myself, with products we have used for years. I guess I will now just call the companies instead of trusting the label. But it's awful that they false-advertise!!!

You could buy an ice cream maker. We do use commercial ice cream on occasion but I feel so much safer when I make the ice cream. If you cannot afford a maker I have a recipe under that heading that is Ice cream in a bag. It is frustrating though when you trust a label!
