Any reccomendations? We used to eat only whole wheat bread but I haven't been able to find one that is made in a pnt free facilitiy. I am in the seattle area...ds 3yo pa.

I am also looking for safe hot dogs and chocolate chip cookies.

We use Pepperidge Farms breads (don't know if they have peanuts there). We use ChipsAHoy for chocolate chip cookies or I make my own egg free ones. Some people on the board don't use ChipAhoy but we do. We use Oscar Meyers and Ball Park for hot dogs. I have not called about the hot dogs. My son is EA/PA.

we were eating Ball Park turkey dogs before the diagnosis...but I called them today and SaraLee said.....that they guarantee no cross contamination but wouldn't/couldn't tell me about shared lines/facilities. For me for now...that's not good enough.

safe bread...we use Baker's Inn Whole Wheat (made by Interstate Bakeries). dd is PA, MA and TNA.

safe hot dogs...Best Kosher for beef hot dogs and Jennie-O Turkey Dogs for turkey hot dogs.

we make our own choc chips cookies (safer and better), or use Cherrybrook Kitchens mix. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Mentioned above interstate bakeries also makes wonder bread. If it is available in your area you can call their number and they will give you the plant codes for plants where no nuts are used. They do make some whole grain and wheat varieties. We use their white bread and wheat bread (they also have the bakers inn mentioned above from nut free plants in our area).

Can't advise on the hotdogs as we have been using BallPark- but then I just saw the post above- maybe Oscar Meyer? Not sure I'll have to check that one out too!

thanks for that thread link...I thought I searched...but then when I search so many of the posts are old and anyway...I am crosseyed from reading!

I know what you mean about being cross-eyed from reading. There is a ton of info to absorb.

I'm not sure if they make a whole wheat, but when we went out west on vacation 3 yrs ago we had to buy bread and we used Pillsbury. It's made by General Mills. I was surprised to see they made bread.

Oh for hot dogs we use Oscar Meyer. No idea about cookies-we only buy Oreos for the most part. Keebler labels well so if they have a cookie that isn't labeled for nuts/peanuts I would trust it. I don't buy them because they all have that evil trans fat. (except oreos-they have no trans fat).

Bread: We use Brownberry (double fiber!)--they are totally peanut-free, but they have tree nuts in the facility.

Hot dogs: Jennie-O turkey, Morning Star Farms frozen soy hot dogs

Chocolate Chip Cookies: Enjoy Life, homemade with Enjoy Life chocolate chips or Guittard chocolate chunks

General Mills owns Country Hearth; I e-mailed them and they confirmed that. But I'm a little confused about it, because the Country Hearth bread I buy says it's made by Pan-O-Gold. Maybe General Mills owns Pan-O-Gold? Anyway, General Mills has a good record for labeling, so I buy Country Hearth, plus Wonder. Their 100% whole wheat is appealing to my kids -- no wheat chunks, soft.

Rudi's Organic, all varieties are nut-free. But can't hurt to call and check again! They are at whole Foods, Trader Joe's, Wild Oats.

Thank you all! I have some information to share

I spoke with the chief scientist/food safety guy (Dave) and found that the bread (Apple Struedel) which is absolutely the most yummy bread and no high fructose syrup and made with good stuff is made in pnut free facility in CANADA that supplies PA,NY, NJ, CT, MA, VT (call to verify) the brand is Inn Keepers and they make lots of fruit breads and other varieties.

For WA, ID and OR the Inn Keepers line is baked with the Simple Grains line that has a walnut cinnamon variety. The walnut bread is processed last on Sunday night and then a full clean out. The walnut supplier is Diamond Walnut Growers and they have told Dave that there is no cross contam with peanuts. I have not verified that. Dave said that legally he can't say that the Apple Bread is pnut or Walnut free but he said it's as slim as we can get it. He was very helpful and nice.

Being new to this...I think I am going to keep giving ds the apple bread but if people here think it's unsafe I would like to hear your thoughts. DS has only been tested for pnut and soy and was negative for soy. I don't know if he has had any other tree nuts. We agreed to avoid them solely due to cross contam reasons. On the pnut skin test he scored 30/50 with 2/25 control. He had some Benydryl about 50 hours before the test.

I 2nd Yonit's Rudi's Organic recommendation. I am also in the Seattle area and can buy the bread from Fred Meyers and PCC.

I don't know if I should start a separate thread about this, but does anyone know of a safe one in Canada that is egg-free too? We used to buy safe bread (I forget the brand) but we can't find a single one now that doesn't have traces of eggs or nuts!

I'm guessing that they didn't change anything...just the labeling. But now that I KNOW I just don't feel right giving it to her!

Vermont Bread Company has no nuts/peanuts in their facility. I think they're actually owned by the same company that owns Rudi's.

I use Wonder bread wheat also and Stroehmann's wheat, but I'm not allergic to peanuts and haven't checked on those two.
