I am new to the peanut free world. What do you buy for bread? Hamburger buns and hot dog buns?

We usually buy Sara Lee brand breads and buns. My daughter has a severe peanut allergy and she has never had a problem with them. You should always check the labels, though. You never know when they could change their ingredients.

Last night I ate a french roll made by Franz and it didn't list any nut or peanut ingredients nor did it say made on the same equipment and my lips started itching, had problems breathing then got itchy everywhere else. Plus a runny nose. So there was something in that bread. I will have to try Sara lee. Thanks!!

I've never heard of Franz before. That's kind of scary to think there were no allergens listed and you had a reaction.

Sara Lee lists allergens so make sure to check the label. We check it every time we buy it and my daughter has never had a problem eating their bread, buns, etc.

I call all the companies before I feed my daughters anything. Natures Pride Bread is made in a peanut and nut free facility if the code by the expiration date starts with a 55. also their hamburger buns are okay but coconut is in that facility.

if you are looking for cereal I use Earths Best instant oatmeal, Cascadian Farm cereals are clearly marked if they are processed with peanuts or nuts. Also my kids like Perky's Crunchy Rice Cereal by Enjoy Life. all their products are peanut and nut free. I don't recommend the bread they make because it molds easily. Another product you might like is wild harvest which is found in the organic section at Cub's grocery store. most of their products are safe. I call each time I buy a new product.

We buy Sara Lee too. BUT we also buy Wonder Bread and Buns...but watch these labels because I believe they are going to change the palnts where they make this bread. We also buy BEST CHOICE bread from time to time. Always check each ingredient list.

We also have wonder from time to time. Since they are changing the plant where they are made, are they now going to be manufactured in the same facility as peanuts?

Thanks for posting about Wonder. I always buy their bread, but ran into a problem this week when I got a batch from a "mystery plant." They had no idea where it was manufactured, and my daughter got hives after eating it. I'll have to call again and verify that plant 75 is still the safe plant for our area ....

I have also used Sarah Lee, as they label well. Just be sure to read the label every time!

I personally like Sunbeam Bread, Aunt Millies, and Natural Ovens Bakery bread. Natural Ovens is peanut free- in fact, they don't allow peanuts in the candy machines in the employee area, and forbid employees from bringing peanut products in their lunches.

I now have confirmation for Aunt Millies.

"Thank you for contacting Aunt Millie's Bakeries. We have one product that has nuts this would be our Aunt Millie's Honey and Crunchy Oat Bread. This is produced in Kalamazoo. All of our other products are produced in a nut and Peanut free facility. You need to avoid any product that has a letter C. You can locate this information on the front of the product wrapper by the twist tie. For example, the information will look like this $3.59 C12345678 Best By Date 1/1/11 All of our other products will be fine.

Schwebel! That's the other brand I use that is also nut-free. The name slipped my mind. I believe they do hotdog and hamburger buns as well.
