Pop tarts

Okay, this is probably needlessly rehashing a subject, but we can't do searches yet. Someone mentioned that pop tarts were not safe. So I called Kelloggs today, and they informed me that pop tarts were made on a dedicated line but were in a plant that also processes peanuts. But of course they didn't put that on their label. The woman I talked to said that persons who are very sensitive and airborne sensitive should not eat pop tarts.

I'm just wondering how others feel about the safety of pop tarts. I have been giving them to Patricia without incident for months. And I can't decide whether I should stop letting her have them or just continue since there is only a very slight risk.

My son is almost 4 now. He loved pop tarts when he was 2 years old, but lost his interest about a year ago and I haven't encouraged him, because I was a little uncomfortable with them. I do not know why I was nervous about the pop tarts. He never had a reaction to them...

My son occasionally eats pop tarts. I think they were strawberry filled with the sprinkles on top. I always check the label and so far I have not seen any warnings on them.

My son occasionally eats the plain (no frosting) strawberry filled Pop Tarts with no problems. I am comfortable with Kelloggs allergy policy. They label any allergic ingredient in their products very clearly.

My son has been eating pop tarts for years. He loves the Strawberry with the Frosting and Sprinkles and the Brown Sugar Cinnamon ones. He has never had a reaction.

I just talked to Kelloggs the other day. You can call their customer service for a brochure on allergies. One is on its way to me.

Rhonda,

Thanks for all the info. I am very distressed that we got conflicting info about poptarts having a dedicated line. I am going to get rid of the poptarts in my house. It's just not worth the risk. It's not like they are super nutritious food anyway! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/wink.gif[/img]

Oh, and just another thing. DH just reminded me that Patricia had a few hives around her mouth the other night. We weren't sure what caused it. But she had a few bites of blueberry pop tart for a snack. So the pop tarts are definitely out now.

Wow, I'm so glad you psted the above message. I'm going to call Kelloggs too. They should really be more dilligent in their manfacturing and if we all start calling these big companies they might start to be more responsive. I'm going to hve to throw out the Pop Tarts...and they are really garbage food anyway.
