Hi we use Philidelphia cream cheese and Hillshire Farms, Oscar meyer and butterball(I think). Haven't had a problem so far, but I know the cream cheese does have the tree nuts in some of them.

Yeah I was thinking about the Philly cream cheese, they do have nut flavored ones, and Krafts (I think that's who makes it?) labeling annoys me.

Horizon Organic is nut free and made in a nut free facility
Organic Valley is NOT nut free and every other brand that I tried coul dnot guarantee nut free status.

We use Fry's brand (The other name for Kroger) cream cheese. I remember not wanting to buy the Philiphedia cream cheese, I think because of something about Smuckers and peanut butter but I can't remember my reason. I would like to buy Phildephia brand again though so if my confused logic is off... please let me know!

I'm not sure what you mean about Smuckers and PB. Philadelphia is owned by Kraft, Smucker's is a separate company, which owns other brands as well (such as the Pilsbury mixes). A lot of people here don't trust Kraft. I don't like their labeling, so if I can find a comparable product by a brand I like better, I'll get the other brand. But when Kraft has the only product of that type I want, I'll get it. I do buy Phili cream cheese. I'm pretty sure that someone posted on another thread, quite some time ago, that the brick cream cheese is on a separate line from the flavored ones.

I use Trader Joe's whipped - it's $1.69 (I think) for a tub and they confirmed no nuts in the facility and it's better tasting IMO than Philly whose safety is questionable IMO.
For turkey I think we use Butterball - I also use a lot of Jeanneo (sp?) turkey products and have spoken to them and been assured that they do not use any nuts.

I wanted to add that I do use the Philly blocks of cream cheese (and the lower fat one) and Kroger too - I have never seen a nut version of those - but I haven't checked on them either.

I wanted to add that we don't have a Trader Joe's or Kroger here. We do have a HyVee, Fareway and Walmart.
