How do you all feel about Frito-Lay? I've eaten Doritos, and generally do without incident, and I know some people that eat other brands by them as well. I know they make peanut products, but I was assured that the non-peanut products were run on other lines where peanuts aren't (at least the particular flavor I asked about was.)
I got this e-mail:
"Thank you for contacting Frito-Lay with your ingredient concerns. Lay's Sour Cream and Onion chips are not made on lines where peanuts or tree nuts are processed.
The good news is that most of our snacks are free of peanuts and tree nuts. Frito-Lay products that contain or may contain peanut/tree nut-related ingredients can easily be identified, since ingredients, as well as allergy information, are clearly labeled on the back of every package beneath the ingredient statement.
We would like to suggest that it would be a safe practice for those with peanut/tree nut-related allergies to review the ingredients of ANY product on a regular basis.
For a list of snacks that you would want to avoid, please go to the "Your Health" section of our website, under "For Special Dietary Needs." There you will see a list of "Products That May Contain Peanuts or Tree Nuts."
Thanks again for choosing Frito-Lay snacks . We will continue to provide the information you need to make safe, great-tasting choices."
What do you guys think? I'm a little hesitant to try them still. I called today, but because of weather conditions they aren't answering right now.
