"Pringles" chips are safe! I called them today and they said they do not use any peanut products in their facility. The only thing to be careful of is the old pizzalicious flavor; they used to use peanut oil, but do not anymore! As always, with all products read the ingredient listings every time you purchase. check out their website [url="http://www.pringles.com"]www.pringles.com[/url] they even have a neat plastic container you can order for individual sizes for kids lunches, etc. It's called "Pringlepak". Just thought I would let you all know; I am always thrilled to find another safe product!!

Heather: we are in the US. Here is the response I rcv'd from Pringles:
Thanks for your interest in Pringles.

There are no peanuts or peanut byproducts in any current Pringles formula.
Pringles are fried in soybean oil and we don't make any other product at this

Pringles manufacturing lines are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized whenever a
flavor or ingredient change is made. All parts of the seasoning lines are
scrubbed (with brushes) and cleaned with food approved cleaning and sanitizing
solutions. Even the floor is bleached.

I hope this information is helpful.

I saw an advertisement for snack size packs of Pringles. This is new packaging, great for another safe item to add to the lunchbox! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Spoke with Pringles today and they were very helpful and confirmed that Pringles are still nut free!

Several days ago I've got the information that Pringles seems to be safe in Europe, too!!! They do not use peanut oil in their production.......

Just re-raising to mention that my child has been eating Pringles and they are great to add in the lunchbox and maybe even for a Halloween treat in the small individual sized packages! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

This information should probably be verified. I know that the Pringles for sale around here certainly do *not* list soybean oil as the oil. Who knows what else may have changed...

Pringles do contain sunflower oil (it says so in the ingredients) so you should still be careful. My DD has had reactions to sunflower seeds so we keep her away from Pringles. & many Dr recommend stayong away froms eeds due to cross-cont. issues as well.

I also called today to confirm Pringles safety for my PA kiddos. Pringles rep confirmed no nuts, nut oil, or sesame SEEDS in ANY current Pringles product. (The pringles cans we have all list corn, cottonseed, soybean or sunflower oil in terms of types of oil used.) She also confirmed that there is no shared equipment or cross-contamination risk for pringles. Hope this helps. (PA in USA)
