Just rec'd my FAAN newsletter. They are introducing a new Peanut Butter OREO ! Boy was I saddened by this. We love Oreos. Our school loves Oreos. Family know they are safe etc and on and on. I called Nabisco and got a very vague response that if there is a chance for contamination there will be a May Contain Warning. Not good. Does anyone else feel as I do? Why is it imperative for every manufacturer to come out with a peanut variety? Thoughts anyone?

UGH - here we go again. My son who is also allergic to egg has two choices for store bought cookies - Oreos and Fudgeos. We're in Canada (not sure if you are) but I'll be making a call!
Thanks for the heads up. Hey we convinced Nestle to change their mind - maybe we can Nabisco too.

Thanks you so, so much for the warning!

I am so, so sad to hear this. Oreos were one of our "safe" foods. Is the new PB version already being manufactured, or do I still have time to buy up as many old Oreos as I can?

(I knew it was just a matter of time until they joined the PB-version bandwagon. *Sigh*)

OK. I'm so mad right now I can't see straight. Why [b]INDEED[/b] must every stupid cookie come in a PB variety. I'm going to write a letter. Give me a contact name, number, ANYTHING - boy are they going to here it from me! Grrrr....

P.S. I already had to go through the misery of telling Cayley she couldn't have her safe Nestle chocolate bars last year - until Nestle changed their mind and kept the peanut-free plant. I will be d#$ned if I will go through that again with Oreos. No blinking way. (Can you tell I'm really mad??!!)

Has anyone ever tried to develop a extract that tastes like peanut but doesn't have peanut in it?

If this is possible maybe the food industry could use fake enhancers to get the same effect.

I called Nabisco yesterday and got a young person who giggled through most of my questions and responses. I was so upset, I called FAAN and spoke to Debbie S. to see how I could respond to this NEW peanut butter product, effectively. She sent me the following response because I was unclear about the new product and the safeness of the OREO in the future:

Hi Kelly,

We have talked with the folks at Nabisco. They plan to check into the
situation in Consumer Response and do some training to be sure operators
understand the serious nature of food allergy. They may also call you for
a follow-up.

What we've been told is that there will still be Oreos available that do
not share equipment with the cookies that contain peanut butter. However,
it may sometimes be possible that some plain Oreos may be run on the peanut
butter line, but if so there will be peanut listed on the package. So, be
sure to read the labels on all packages.

Debbie

I just wanted to share what happened. I did not get the representatives name. Please call and perhaps all of us can make a difference. Many thanks.

Oops I did it again.

I started a campaign in the Take Action Forum to keep Oreos safe! Please join in. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
