Hi, talked to them again this morning regarding sesame. I was told that they use to be able to research a product to find out about sesame but now they cant since its not one of the allergens. I told them its not in the top 8, its 9th but it is an allergen, anything can be. i was very mad. i dont want their SECRET recipe, i just want to know if my son can eat them. i dont even want to give him the nuggets that were researched a while back. any suggestions on other brands?

I think Tyson brand is safe. Call them, their customer service has been helpful with us in the past.
Good luck!

Try Bell and Evans or Ians from Whole Foods, if you have one near by. My son has same allergies as your child and has safely eaten both of thes as well as Tyson many times. The first two are much better than Tyson - more chicken content and organic.

I do not see sesame or sesame warnings on my Perdue prducts I have in the house right now.
But I have heard Bell and Evans are safe for PA, not sure about sesame cross contamination if that is the issue. They are very good. I have sampled them at a grocery store. It was one time dd was able to accept a sample! becca

that is the problem. they said they dont list for sesame because its not required by law and the "Flavoring" could have sesame in it and they wont tell me if it does or doesnt!!

Wow, my ds is also sesame allergic and he has been eating Perdue fresh nuggets for years. I don't recall the answer I was given when I called (it was 2 years ago). That really makes me mad. They are the ONLY darn chicken nuggets that he likes!
Thanks for the info.

i let my son eat the nuggets again last nite because i called on them a while back when they were still researching it for people. im not buying them again though. what if they change recipe and you cant even find out about it!! plus its the principal that they wont research it anymore!!
