Anyone found a safe brand for these or other spices? The threads aren't leading me anywhere.
Thx

I use McCormick. Unfortunately I can't find the email response I got from them, but here is the number- 1-800-632-5847. It has been a while since I contacted them.
Please post the response you get. I remember them being very detailed with their response. I hope the response is the same.
Thanks for the info about the crackers by the way. I will look into it.

I use Tone's spices. One of their plants is about 10 miles from me.

I've been using Penzey's for years with no trouble. I have called but it's been years. I use them for all of my spices.

I regularly use McCormick's. When I emailed them, the response I received seemed like it was from an extremely allergy-aware company.

Spoke to a rep. today for McCormick spices and she said they use NO peanut or tree nuts at all in their plant so everything is safe. I asked her if she was positive about this and she said yes everything is safe.

I should add that I have also called McCormicks in the past and was given the same information. When I pressed them about the almond extract, they informed me that pure almond extract is not made from almonds, but from the pit of some fruit-peach maybe? I can't remember but it wasn't an almond. This information was verified by another company that makes almond extract (can't remember who) that also told me the almond extract isn't made from almonds.

Hello,
As a bit of an update, I couldn't readily determine if the "Simply Organic" brand Vanilla Extract was safe for those w/ nut allergies or not. Long story short, it's not.
Here's their response:
"Frontier is not an allergen-free facility, thus we do not state that any of our products are allergen-free. Every product that directly contains an individual allergen or allergen(s) as part of a product formulation has the allergen(s) identified on the label. We are in compliance with the US Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act of 2004 which states, “Manufacturers are NOT required to label their products with advisory statements, such as "may contain [allergen]" or "processed in a facility that also processes [allergen]?" We follow strict GMPs (Good Manufacturing Practices) to minimize the potential for cross-contamination, but do not test for the presence of allergens in our final products. We apologize for any inconvenience. Please feel free to contact us with any further questions.

Hello again,
FWIW, On 4/30/15 I called up another company - Madecasse - and spoke to a "Mr. Pat". I asked if Vanilla Extract was safe for those with nut allergies (I specified peanuts and tree nuts). He stated that the Vanilla Extract product is NOT made in a facility that processes nuts. So this should be safe for those with nut allergies, and it's what I'll be using.
Regards,
Philip
