Okay, here's what I found out to-day. The peanut oil is made in Canada. It is 100% pure peanut oil. It is made by La Perla.
No where on the big plastic container does it say anything else about whether or not it is cold pressed, etc.
The young woman working the chip wagon to-day called her boss. He said that there is a filter at the top of the chip wagon and that would filter any peanut oil out before it went out into the air. I then asked if that meant it would filter out peanut protein to which he replied no.
So, DUH? [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]
He has a friend who is "highly allergic" and the friend spends a great deal of time hanging around on, in and around the chip wagon without problem.
In speaking with another parent at the school tonight, she said that cold pressed would be extremely expensive (why, I don't know) so she didn't think that the chip wagon peanut oil would be cold pressed.
I'll see later, if this bloody headache ever dies down, if I can find a contact for La Perla.
Thanks for continuing to listen.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Okay, so after reading all of the threads that Momma Bear so kindly re-raised, stupid me still has this question.
Should I be concerned about the peanut oil frying chip wagon parked two doors down?
I swear, I am easily confused or I don't quite "get" some things.
Many thanks and best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Pretty sure you had seen most of those threads before, (maybe you have not), but seeing there were several spots on the board where folk were posing questions regarding peanut oil, thought I'd reraise a few. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

[B]Stupid question number one million.
Here is my stupid question...what in heck is a chip wagon? I am from Chicago, and I don't have a bloody clue what a chip wagon is.
Secondly, I think that peanut oil costs vary by region. More than not, most places I have checked in Chicago use veggie oil for frying. We were just in NC last week and almost every place we contacted used soy or peanut oil. I think the Southern states may use more peanut oil since it is a local product and therefore might be easier and less costly for this region.

Momma Bear, my life is a strange thing which sometimes I have little or no control over [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img]
Things happen and then I just deal with whatever it is and then get back to tending to what my list of regular every day stuff is.
For example, I am supposed to have quite a bit of paperwork handed in somewhere here. Paperwork that can only be found if I look through all different parts of the downstairs. Imperative that I do so before week's end.
However, Thursday night, Ember and I, every hot, stepping out of a "cool down" shower and both children start yelling that there is a car in the drive-way and that it is an old hippie man. Not that old hippie man was totally unexpected, but he was not quite expected. KWIM?
He just got on the bus leaving town here tonight at 7:30 p.m. so now I'm back to get things back to our sense of "normal" and nothing that I may have gotten done during those days has been done at all because it was such a treat.
Fits of depression do befall me after said person leaves as well. However. Don't have time for that either.
I have not contacted La Perla or even done a web search for them to see what type of peanut oil they make.
Windows have been opened in my home, although, again, not a lot, and not a lot during the day, and there have been no difficulties to-date.
It operates from approximately 10:00 a.m. 'til 8:00 Monday to Thursday. Friday 10:00 a.m. 'til about 5:00 p.m. which surprises me. Saturday and Sunday, it has been known to appear, but can't pin down any pattern yet.
But no, no problems yet. Very heavy odour of things frying and the woman next door said that when it first arrived so close to us, she liked the smell and it made her hungry. Now it makes her sick.
Was wondering why the thread was re-raised, thought perhaps someone else was discussing not certainly a similar dilemma but something related, so thought I best check it out.

Does this link work? It's a study reported in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology that suggests that "at least 90% of highly sensitive children with peanut allergy would not experience a systemic-respiratory reaction from casual exposure to peanut butter." The children were smelling PB 12 inches from their face for 10 minutes! It's not exactly what you are concerned about, but maybe it offers some consolation until you find a new place.
I hope all goes well for you.
