Food Labeling-made on shared equipment or may contain
Hi, I am new to this site as I have a 7 month old girls with severe peanut allergies. We have cleared our cupboards of all peanuts and tree nuts. My wife is breastfeeding, so she is being extra cautious with what she eats. I have e-mailed and called many manufacturers and read many forums on what foods are safe, but it is a little overwhelming. The most frustrating part is that not all companies label "may contain" (meaning made on shared equipment or chance of cross contamination) or "made on shared equipment". I am wondering if anyone has any input on what large reputable companies they know of for sure that do this? From what I have gathered, some that do include:
-General Mills/Betty Crocker (Pilsbury? Cascadian Farms?)
Anyone have a different experience or know of any other reputable companies that we can start with when we first start feeding our daughter table food? I know there are brands such as Enjoy Life, but we can't realistically always get foods made in a nut-free facility. So we would like to atleast start a list of companies that atleast label for potential cross contamination.
Or anyone know of companies for sure that do not label
for chances of cross contamination?
Any help would be greatly appreciated as we are quite overwhelmed with twin girls with peanut allergies.
Suggestions on bread or ice cream or chocolate to research?
