I have never seen a warning on the Twinkies box. Do you know they are not safe for an other reason? PA son has never eaten them, but I have bought cupcakes, and read the Twinkies box several times.

It really depends on where you live, because Hostess (Interstate) has bakeries in various parts of the country. In my area for example (eastern MA), cupcakes and Suzie-Qs are made in the nut-free Biddeford, Maine bakery and are safe. Twinkies, however, are made in a bakery in NJ that is not nut-free, and the Twinkies do have a warning that they are made in a facility that uses nuts.

We have safe Twinkies in Michigan because there are 2 nut-free factories that deliver to us. You have to call Interstate and they will give you the codes to look for on the boxes. Our safe ones start with a 00 or a 05. So any baked goods with those codes come from a nut-free factory. I don't think I've ever seen an actualy allergen statement on any of the hostess boxes but I wouldn't feed them to my PA son until I checked it out with the company. I'm tempted to call Little Debbie for the facts because they put a warning on everything. Anyone ever use those?

They do not post warnings. They clean between lines & feel this is enough.

We live in Maryland. I'm not sure which bakery they come from all I know is that Twinkies do have the warning on them here. It was pretty recently that I checked them.

In my town in Nebraska, Hostess cupcakes and HoHos are safe. Twinkies are made in a peanut free facility but are a may contain for tree nuts. This is NOT indicated on the label - you currently have to call Hostess to find out. But the guy I spoke to there told me they are phasing in new and improved allergy labeling during 2005, so it sounds like that is beginning in some areas - yay!

The only Hostess products I have found safe to eat are the potato chips. All of the Twinkies and baked goods made by Hostess have a 'may contain peanuts' (here in Toronto Canada)

The ones I see in Iowa all have MAY CONTAIN Wheat, eggs, milk. I don't think I've seen anything with a peanut warning. You have no idea how bad I want a ho ho!
