Wesson also makes Peanut Oil
What oils do people use besides Wesson? I just called ConAgra re: Wesson 100% Natural Canola Oil and the Vegetable (Soybean) oils. The CSR was not that familiar w/food allergens, but she read me their cross-contamination policy and looked into manufacturing plants. ConAgra does make a peanut oil in large quanity bottles for the large warehouse stores. They use same lines for all their oils, but have a lengthy cleaning process, and ingredients are stored separately, etc..............
I had called them about a year and a half ago and was told their was no chance of cross-contact w/peanut or other nut oils. My DS is allergic to peanuts, tree nuts, egg and sesame. I'm so mad! I told her I wouldn't even have risked it if I had known that from the beginning.
I'm having a woman make a birthday cake for him-she has gained a local reputation for making allergen-free cakes, customized to an individual's allergen. I had her run all of her ingredients by me, and my gut said to double check on the Wesson. Always listen to your gut is the lesson here.
