I just received the following:

Thank you for taking the time to send an e-mail to Barbara's Bakery about cereals which your son can eat. Shredded Spoonfuls does not contain peanuts or other nuts. Nuts are produced in another building at the same processing facility, but the chance of cross contamination is virtually non-existent.

He also may want to try our Original Puffins, and Shredded Oats cereals as they also do not contain nuts and nuts are produced in another building at the same processing facility so cross contamination is virtually non-existent. There may be many other cereals your son can eat, these are just ones from the top of my head. Please check out our website at [url=""][/url] and click on Product Lines and Our Products to search for other cereals. If you would like for me to provide additional information about other cereals, please send me another e-mail with the products you are interested in purchasing.

We hope you continue to enjoy Barbara's products in good health!

Just an FYI--interpret it however you want.
I too contacted Barbara's Bakery. They e-mailed me a list of peanut free cereals. It did not match the information on their website. And, neither set of information matched the actual labels.
Do other people here consider any of their cereals safe?

Here's the response I received to my inquiry about Shredded Oats (my personal fave!):
Dear Amy,
Thank you for taking the time to contact Barbara's Bakery regarding the allergen labelling on our cereals. All of our packaging is up to date with allergen warning information about peanuts and tree nut allergens. If the package does not say it includes nuts or peanuts and it also does not say that it could contain a trace element of nuts or peanuts, then it is processed in a facility which does not produce nut or peanut products and is thus safe for someone with these allergies to consume.
We appreciate our customers comments and questions. If we can be of further assistance to you in the future, please feel free to contact us again.

That said, since none of us have received the same answer, I really have no confidence in their replies. [img][/img]
