I called yesterday wanting to know if their spud puppies are safe and also their O's cereal and was told I needed to call back with a specific package before they can tell me. It turns out the french fries we've been using are okay they said it takes a day or two to get the info but they called back within the hour. Also they have been purchased recently by GM and their labeling will be changing soon. I just hope GM doesn't start using soybean oil in their stuff.

I have called them twice in the past and was told that they label for cross contamination. No one ever said anything about chaning the labeling in the future!
I will try to find my old posts and raise them.

Thanks for re-raising your old info. As of yesterday I was told they do not label for cross contamination, also that the GM purchasing was a recent thing, not something that happened two years ago. I guess I'm confused yet again.

I called on the Spud Puupies, green peas, corn and french fries a few weeks ago and all are safe. They also told me that they are now really going to concentrate on their labeling and will label in the near future for cross. I really hammered them with questions and ended up speaking to a supervisor because I was not happy with the answers I was getting but I feel safe with them now.

I e-mailed this company, specifically about their granola cereal. However the answer goes for everything. Here it is:

That is the same response I got after inquiring about the Oat and Honey Granola cereal in June 2005.
FYI I do have this cereal in the house for myself. PA DD has eaten it several times and has not had any issues. Another personal comfort level decision.

We eat the Organic Honey Oat Granola and the Organic Hearty Morning cereals w/out incidence all the time. I am just thrilled to be able to find organic cereal, granola, no less, without nuts. We get them both at Target for less than $3/box. Our gerbils like the occasional granola, too [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
