For those of you who bake or use molasses, just thought I would let you know that I received the following email from Mott's Inc/Granma's Molasses. Visit them at [url="http://www.grandmasmolasses.com"]www.grandmasmolasses.com[/url]

Thank you for writing. The Grandma's Molasses is completely nut and peanut-free
and there are no other products made on the same lines that contain nuts or nut
by-products. We hope this helps!

I have an email in to them, but they haven't responded yet (no phone number on label or website). We're snowed in today, and I want to make gingerbread cookies--anyone know if they are still considered safe???
Thanks! Jen

I can tell you that I just used this brand of molasses last week to make gingerbread cookies and my PN/TN allergic son has eaten a truck full and has been fine.

Molasses is a staple in my household! Grandma's is a favorite brand. I've never called. To my knowledge, my son has never had a reaction to any molasses I've purchased and served him either in foods or on top of pancakes, waffles, etc.
[son 8 years old--anaphylatic reaction without ingestion to peanut @ 22 months; contact allergic to peanut, sesame seed, & chickpea; airborn reaction to peanut if in closed environment; CAP RAST also shows allergy to almonds, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts (avoiding all tree nuts) but no known reaction to tree nuts]

I got a response quicker than I thought:
There are no peanuts used in any of the products filled in the plant
where the molasses is filled.
