Does anyone know whether Girl Scout cookies are safe for people with peanut allergies (excluding the peanut butter ones, because they are obviously unsafe)? There's no warning on the label but I just wanted to make sure.

pGirl Scout Cookies are made by different companies that are contracted by Girl Scouts. The ones here in NC are made by ABC cookie company. The shortbread are made with peanut flour. I brought this up at our local council meeting because as leaders, we teach the girls which cookies contain peanuts in case someone asks. Also, all the literature we received did not mention shortbread. Hopefull, next year the literature will be changed to fit the ingredients. /p

pWell that explains why my daughter was able to eat the shortbreads that I bought without any problem! I got nervous after reading Schierman's post and ran in the kitchen to read the box again but it was gone already! (4 kids=empty cookie box)/p

p[/b]I am the mother of a Brownie with severe peanut allergy. I recently read your letter to the Peanut Allergy network about the various manufacturers of GS cookies and was wondering, do all of the shortbread cookies have peanut flour in them? Is there a way that I may find our which manufacturers make cookies for which regions of the US and their ingredients? I would like to know particularly about the South Baton Rouge Louisiana area. I was told that the cookies were safe but, being as paranoid as I am, I would like to know for sure. /p
pThanks,br /

pMy box does not say anything about peanut flour or made on shared equipment. Does it say it on yours? The company that makes it is Little Brownie Bakers and lists two cities, Marietta, Ga. and another that I've forgotten. I haven't given any to my son yet but bought them because I thought they'd be safe for him./p

pHere in North Carolina, it is only the shortbread which has the warning. I checked the others. If you call your local council office listed under Girl Scouts in the phone book, they should be able to get you information on the local bakerys. Because the manufacturers are different, there will be different processing methods. This drives me crazy. Also, to moms with Girl Scouts who are allergic to peanuts...be careful about letting your daughters load and unload the boxes. I have seen cookie crumbs on the outside of the boxes and three of our brands contain peanuts. I believe in having the entire troop involved in troop activities but I try to find jobs for my allergic girls that have nothing to do with handling the boxes. They can add totals on the cookie forms, they can make posters, they can organize pick up, etc. There are always things to do that do not have anything to do with handling boxes of cookies./p

pMy mother recently purchased some Girl Guide cookies. She said she was going to bring them over for the kids. I was hesitant at first because I knew that they had previously sold peanut butter girl guide cookies. I had my Mom read the label to me and they were manufactured by Christie's and there was no warning. Christie's is one of the Canadian manufacturers that is very clear in their labelling. My kids got the cookies and they were fine. I believe I posted this info. on another thread. Christie's is in Ontario and I believe owned by American Nabisco. I've found them very good./p

phi. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] you might want to include the bakery location for that particular box. GSUSA uses several different bakeries for their cookies. Each one *might* utilize different methods, policies, etc./p

pWhen I ordered Girl Scout Cookies a few weeks ago, the ingredients for each kind of cookie was listed right on the order sheet. Allergy information was noted in different type at the bottom. I was impressed that the information was readily available and I didn't have to rely on a 7 year old girl scout to tell me if there were peanuts in the cookies she was selling--no offense to 7 year old girl scouts! I live in IL so I'm not sure if it's different in other parts of the states./p

pI thought I would bring this thread back up to the top since it is girl scout cookie time again. First for all with tree nut allergies or those who avoid them- there is a new cookie this year. It is called aloha chips and has macademia nuts in it. It replaces the chocolate chip ones they had last year./p
pThe Girl Scouts (U.S.) are still using two baking companies: Little Brownie Bakers and ABC Baking. There are many different bakeries so labeling is different in different areas. The boxes in my area (San Diego County, CA.) are very clearly labeled with Thin Mints being the only ones run on a seperate line. All others are labeled may contain traces of peanuts and tree nuts./p
pIf you want to find out who is the manufacturer for your area look in your local phone book under girl scouts. You will find a listing for the local council. Each council has a person in charge of cookies. They should be able to tell you the supplier for your area and a contact number. /p
pEach order form still does contain a complete ingredient list but of course does not address cross contamination. This is why it is important to contact the company directly./p

pHi I was glad to hear about the thin mints. My daughter is selling the cookies,and I do allow people to buy the peanut butter ones. The reason being I get them right out of my house and no one will be around Christopher with them. i need to let her sell them because it does mean so much to her,and she gets so excited. I will let my husband get the peanut butter ones. He drives tractor trailor and he will take them many miles away from home. Christopher however will get the thin mints and put them in his drawer because this is his special no share time of the year. Thanks for the thin mint news. claire Oh and DMB,I would not rely on any 7 year old to make sure either. My daughter is 9 and the only reason I would think they could trust in her is because she hears about allergies so much. Many of these kids don't have a clue. I know for a fact Jennifer is the only one in her troop that has a sibling with nut allergies. Take care and best wishes./p

pMy daughter is selling the GS cookies, and here in the Boston area, they do list allergy information on the back on all the cookies. On our form, of course stay away from anything that contains the pnuts/pb/nuts, but they also put an allergy information warning on the shortbread (Trefoils I think they are called), saying they are manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts. We have a cookie on our form that my PA daughter just loves. They are called animal treasures, a large shortbread type cookied covered in fudge on one side. She also enjoys the sugar frosted oatmeal./p

I never used to buy the thin mints because I was afraid Christopher would not understand the difference between the Peanut butter patty and the mint. I will buy the mints for him because he is 14 and understands of course. I also love the animal treasure and will enjoy them. have a good day. claire/p

pEvery area sells differnt cookies. Some people have been talking about animal ones- I have never seem those./p
pFunny though I was thrilled they had cancelled the choc. chip in my area because they had pecans in them. Of course to only be replaced by macademia ones! Can't win for nothing!/p
pA friend asked me in an email how I came to the decision about my daughter selling cookies. I wonder how others made this decision. My daughter will only be selling thin mints since those are the safe ones in my area. My logic in only selling the thin mints was as a almost 7year old she will only be selling to close family and neighbors. I do not want to encourage these people to eat extra nut containing products. I also do not permit any nut containing or foods labeled may contain into my house. If Rachel was selling all cookies then I would be breaking my own rule./p
pAnybody have any different logic? I would love to hear how other people made their decisions./p

pMy boss's daughter is selling GS cookies. The order form has allergy warnings on all the cookies but the Thin Mints so I called Little Brownie Bakers and they confirmed that the Thin Mints are made on a dedicated nut free line but not a nut free facility. I'm not quite sure yet how I feel about that but I ordered two boxes. My brother has been bugging me for an ice cream cake for his birthday and I thought the Thin Mints would be great in a cake made with mint chocolate chip ice cream./p

pI am a PA adult. Today, I had a business meeting with a Girl Scout Executive Director and her Fund Developer. The meeting was at my home, so I served them coffee and Thin Mints. I gave them the whole story on why their cookies (except for Thin Mints which I find are OK for me) are not safe and that PA people do not buy their cookies. I also stressed that children's activities should be nut free. Since they were captives in my home and I am doing them a favor, they had to listen. /p
pJust a little grass roots networking... Sometimes it works a lot better than letters and phone calls. I think I made believers out of them, and possibly if enough of GS leaders get the message, something will happen./p

pI have Thin Mints and Caramel Delights in my house right now. Neither lists any warning regarding ingredients. I find it curious that a few years ago ( when my daughter was selling them) there were warning labels and now none. Maybe it was on a different variety but I'm not taking a chance. Also there is no phone #, just an address. Finally, if what I understood is true, they list allegy ingredients on their selling form but not on the package? What kind of logic is that? It still needs to be on the package. We have them in the house for my other kids but won't let my PA child have them at all. For a national organization I give them a thumbs down./p

pBridget...I think this is the case, someone correct me if I'm wrong. There are two places in the US that make GS Cookies, Little Brownie Bakers (parent company is Mothers) and ABC Bakery. Little Brownie is great about labeling, ABC not so great. I called Little Brownie Bakers and was told that Thin Mints are the only cookies they make that are run on a nut free line - none of the cookies are made in a nut free facility. My boss's daughter's cookie order form was the only one that mentioned on it who the manufacturer was (Litte Brownie). Therefore, I only ordered cookies from here. It's a shame when they don't print the information on every order form so everyon can check the cookies out in advance like I did./p

pI actually had a good experience with ABC Bakery. They have a plant in W. Virginia, I believe, that makes some of their cookies and they gave me the phone number of another plant which makes the rest of the varieties. According to the lab people I spoke with, who were very allergy aware, all but the shortbread (which has a warning on the box) and the PB varieties ARE run on dedicated, nut-free lines. We were very relieved to hear this - and my PA son and my non-PA Girl Scout daughter are thrilled that we can have these cookies in our house! I will try to find the specific phone numbers and post them here later./p

Also does that mean that mother's cookies aren't safe? They have no warnings so I just bought four bags of them at a buy one get one free sale.br /

pIs anyone ever happy that their child has a PA sometimes? Don't get me wrong, I was a Girl Scout in my younger years and the organization is great for the girls, but when I'm bombarded at every bank and grocery/department store to buy cookies by these sweet little girls and ferocious moms, sometimes I'm glad to say..."Sorry, no thanks" or "Sorry, we have a food-allergic person in our family." And not having those cookies around sure helps the waistline!/p

Actually, I never thought about it that way till you brought it up. Maybe, we should make a list of all the positives of being food allergic just to give a positive perspective to something so very negative.br /
I use to feel guilty in saying no to all the chocolates the kids sell door to door for various reasons, now I don't feel guilty in saying no at all.br /

pI just spoke to ABC Bakers/Interbake Foods who are the bakers of Girl Scout cookies in my area (Illinois) and others. Their number is (804)755-7107 and the women I spoke with is Maura Burns. With regard to the cookies which they produce, the following varieties are produced on peanut-free, nut-free lines: Thin Mints, Caramel Delights, Animal Treasures, Friendship circles, Lemon Pastries. Thin Mints have a dedicated line because they sell so many of them. The others may share lines (e.g. Friendship Circles and Lemon Pastries), but they do NOT share lines with the peanut varieties./p
pShe could not guarantee that the entire plant is peanut-free (she could not be specific), but she was certain about the manufacturing and production lines. Besides the obvious peanut varieties, Shortbread cookies are NOT safe. They are produced on shared lines. The allergen statements on all the varieties are pretty explicit with regard to milk and egg as well. /p
pWe are excited to be able to buy, buy, buy - it's so hard to find a good and safe cookie. My Brownie daughter is not allergic, but her little brother is. I've been told that the cookies freeze well, too. /p

pBumping up, as we have had 2 callers in the past week and I anticipate more. I did notice the form this year has all the cookies listed with their ingredient panels! There were peanut and milk warnings for two varieties(peanuts and milk traces for shortbread, I believe) and just a milk warning for the other variety and I do not reacall what it was. /p
pSo, I went ahead and ordered thin mints form one, and the animal treasures from the other. Then, as I handed it back, I saw eggs in the animal treasures(we are egg alergic too)! Bummer. I did not bother to change it since I do believe in supporting and ordering from the kids who come door to door on their own like that(as opposed to the ones that send the form to the office with mom or dad). /p
pAnyway, it does seem they are labeling well! I will call to be sure about shared equipment nonetheless, since niether of these had any allergy statement. becca/p

If peanuts/tree nuts are not listed in the ingredients and there is not a warning label, it is made on a dedicated line. I ordered a box of Friendship Circles, a box of Animal Treasures and a box of Thin Mints./p

I haven't gotten my cookies yet but I noticed on the order form that some, including the shortbread, said may contain peanuts. The chocolate mint ones did not say that so I would think they are safe. I'm hoping there's an 800 number to call so I can double check.

I wouldn't eat ANY girl scout cookies with a peanut allergy. You have no idea if they have been manufactured on the same lines as the others. I would treat them like any other store bought cookie and not eat it.

It is also going to depend on where you live. There is no one answer for girl scout cookies since there are different bakers that are used across the country. 45 minutes away from us, in the next county, they have peanut flour in their shortbread cookies, but we don't. If anyone posts a phone number, please make sure you identify the baker, too. Thanks!

A very kind person on this board provided me info on Girl Scout cookies from Little Brownie Bakers last month or so. The safe ones were Apple Cinammon, Lemon drops, Thin Mint and Samoa. I had called Little Brownie Bakers myself to get some info and was satisfied with the results. I encouraged them to label,,,"may contain pn" on those cookies made on pn lines...we will see....
Also, the website [url="http://www.topsecretrecipes.com"]http://www.topsecretrecipes.com[/url]
has recipes for "fake" Girl Scout cookies which will be an even safer route!

In Ontario, Canada (I don't know how many countries Guides are in) the cookies are made by Mr. Christie.
They carried a warning last year, but have been said to be made on a peanut free line this year as there were so many voiced concerns last year.
We do seem to be making progress. Yahoo!
I don't actually have any Guides in the house...we are just big time cookie fans.

I know this is an old topic but...
I am in NY and just ordered Girl Scout cookies from a girlfriend's kid in NJ. The bakery is Little Brownie Bakers so it seems these bakeries (ABC being the other one)are NOT east coast/west coast specific.
I have noticed from an old box that they are labeled pretty well but will be calling myself because I don't see any "may contains" statements and I know they make peanut butter ones. My comfort level is such that I would need to confirm that before my girl gets a bite!
