I just left a message for the Kraft people to address my concerns, namely the cheese sandwiches (crackers) that contain peanuts(needs a large warning) and the reduced fat Cheese Nips containing peanut oil but the regular doesn't(this causes confusion to consumers, also needs a large warning). Please, everybody call Kraft (the number is on any product) and tell them what you need. We must start somewhere and have our voices heard!!! P.S. Aldi discount food stores are very good at listing allergens in bold print. Kraft needs to follow Aldi's example. CALL KRAFT NOW!!!

memphismom, welcome! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
Here is the contact information re Kraft I pulled off the [url="http://www.nuconnexions.com"]www.nuconnexions.com[/url] website:-
Company:
Kraft (information last updated February, 2001).
Subsidiaries (If Any):
Baker's Chocolate, Jello, Post.
Food Allergy Safety Measures:
Necessary precautions have been taken to ensure that no cross-contamination with potential allergens can take place on production lines. On non-dedicated production lines, equipment is thoroughly broken down and cleaned after potential food allergens have been processed, and the first run of any product done after this type of thorough cleaning is not released for public consumption as an extra safeguard. If cross-contamination is possible, an allergy alert would be placed on the packaging, but to date this has not been necessary.
Contact Information:
In Canada, call 1-800-268-6450 for further information.
In the USA, call 1-800-543-3733 for further information.
You may also visit the Kraft USA or Kraft Canada websites by clicking on the links above.
