Possible Peanut Butter on a Ritz Cracker!
Help! My husband was just eating from a package of plain, regular-sized Ritz crackers when he came upon a cracker that looked like it had Peanut Butter on it. There is no "may contains" statement on the package and we normally do trust Kraft/Nabisco.
We immediately called Kraft and by the UPC code they said that this particular box "should" be safe and if it was made in the same facility as peanuts it WOULD have been on the packaging. She offered money to replace the box, but that's it.
What should we do? We still have the cracker. Should we send it someplace to 100% identify it is peanut butter? Should we report it to someone?
This makes me nervous if it really is PB because if it was my DS eating it, this could have been disastrous. But we aren't positive it is even PB (so salty it doesn't taste like anything but salt).
Thanks for any help!
