Does anyone know if David brand sunflower seeds are ok for a PA child to eat? My DS has been asking if he could buy some, but I
don't know if they are considered in the nut
family or not.

I think the issue that arises with sunflower seeds is that they are frequently processed in a plant that processes peanuts or other nuts. Sunflower seeds themselves shouldn't be a problem unless there is another allergy.

Lots of times there is a warning on the package.

I very recently contacted David's and was told all the sunflower seeds, kernels and pumpkin seed products are in a pn/nut free facility. The corn nuts(or some other product like that-I had not asked specif. about it) are made in a facility that processes nuts. becca

Thank you, Becca. Have you given your child the sunflower seeds?

Not the David's yet, but I will. We had just ordered the Sungold(sunbutter) ones and some of that trail mix, and I decided to hunt down something less expensive we could buy at the store. becca

The one's he wants are nacho cheese and the only warning on them is about soy and he is not allergic to that, so I will give them a try. Thanks for your info.

Peanuts or Tree-nut are not processed in the same facilities as the David Sunflower, Pumpkin or Sunflower Kernel products.

David Toasted Corn products ARE processed in a facility that also processes "tree-nuts". This is noted on the package label near the ingredient statement.

This is a copy of the resonse I received, if it makes you feel better. I had specifically replied to them more specifically asking about the flavored ones and shelled kernels. becca
