I am now dealing with my 13 month olds intolerance or allergy to oats, barley, rice, possible egg (CAP RAST), blueberry, pear (?)and I am too scared to start wheat. And of course staying away from all nuts an dpeanuts due to her PA dear sister. So, I am scrambeling for foods for her because she refuses to eat baby food and now doesn't want meats or drink much milk. She is a busy 13 month old but still she must eat so Ener G has some foods that may be okay for her. I called and they said no possibility of cross contamination from nuts because they are on a dedicated line and no peanuts in faciltiy. I try so hard to not use products that are made in the same facility with nuts and peanuts but I think now I have no choice because Ener g has some products that no one else seems to have. Has anyone had any problems with them or do you have any comments?
Thanks as always

I have used several products from Ener-G and I feel they are safe. I've used different flours etc... I go by label reading only with them now and don't call if I find something that reads safe.

We had a rep from Ener-g at our last FEAST meeting. She brought lots of treats for us to sample but also addressed this issue - they share out concern about it. I personally felt good about their practices - she said they do a lot of employee education about cross contamination and even ask them not to bring in peanut products for their own lunch. I'm not sure many of the other companies do that. The company has no qualms about throwing out food if there is the slightest chance there might be a problem. I'm pretty sure she said a few of the cookies and some granola where the only tree nut containing products - you might want to stay away from their other cookies if that would make you feel more comfortable but I did let my son try some cinammon ones (PA, TNA, milk and egg allergic) because I am okay with their practices.
