kstreeter:You beat me to it! I was just wondering about gum. My pa 3 3/4 yr old asked if he could have gum since his friend was chewing gum. I said no because he has never had it and I have no idea if gum is safe!
So, I guess I will make a few calls and see what I can find out from the big companies that make gum...let me know what you come up with, Thanks again!

I asked this very question not long ago. Here's the thread:

I ended up giving my dd double bubble, but she's never had a peanut reaction before-only tree nut.

My PA son chews Trident all the time. I have never called because I looked at the ingredients and never saw anything harmful. It does have soy protein though.
I just read the thread from Gale and Trident says they can't guarantee....so I will call them tomorrow 1-800-661-4659.
I'll let you know

I called and Pzifer is the company that makes Trident and they can't guarantee about cross-contamination. I asked what else was made in the factory where they make the gum and rep.couldn't answer that. Guess I'll be switching to Extra, thanks for bringing up this issue!
