joeybeth, are you familiar with Lambert's? Famous for throwing their rolls? I know there's one in Sikeston, MO and another in Springfield, MO. [url="http://www.throwedrolls.com/"]http://www.throwedrolls.com/[/url] I think they use peanut oil.
Edited to add that yes indeed Lambert's uses peanut oil. Here is the response I received today via e-mail:
[i]GAIL,
WE DO NOT USE PEANUT OIL IN OUR ROLLS. THE ONLY THING WE COOK IN PEANUT OIL IS THE CATFISH, SHRIMP, AND THE FRIED OKRA.
YA'LL PLEASE COME!!
THANKS!

not only have i ever eaten at lamberts....we are related (by marriage...my cousin and her son are lamberts). my family is originally from sikeston. what a small world....
they also have a rest. between springfield and branson and another in louisiana or alabama or something.
anyhow...i had NO idea they used peanut oil in anything!!!!!!! how could i have not known that????? i have not taken the girls to eat there but i have eaten there many times and still do on occasion when i'm "home." (in spite of the apparent lack of allergy awareness, it's really really great food....) i am so shocked that i didn't even think to ask about peanuts/peanut oil use.
your story was funny (in a scary sort of way). it reminds me of the time, in my earlier years of dealing with PA, when i asked a sonic carhop if i needed to worry about cross contamination issues with their shakes and ice cream and such. the carhop looked at me very seriously and said....
"no need to worry, ma'am. we don't use peanuts at all. just peanut butter."
not only was this guy clueless about where pb comes from, they DID use peanuts as well (as toppings on sundaes, etc). i'm always amazed at how unaware some people are. i have to constantly remind myself that not everyone is used to thinking about these issues on a daily basis.

Mama Theresa's in Long Island, NY switched to peanut oil a couple of months ago. Many Italian pizzeria/restaurants use peanut oil in our area. Also Umberto's uses peanut oil in their pizza and even in their salads, I think I remember them telling me he uses it in everything. I've learned to always ask because before I was comfortable walking into a pizzeria and ordering pizza without asking. Also, Angelo's pizzeria in Carle Place uses peanut oil.
DiNapoli on Merrick Ave, in East Meadow is peanut free but they use sesame occasionally. Safe pizza for peanut allergic is Cafe Bocelli on North Jerusalem Rd. in East Meadow, NY. The owner has a child allergic to peanuts. He does occasionally use sesame but he told me he can make a safe pizza for my son. Haven't been there yet.
Also Grimaldi's pizzeria in Garden City is peanut free and no shellfish. They use tree nuts in salad and there is a pesto topping (with pine nuts) for the pizza. Tell them if you are allergic to tree nuts and to use a clean cutter and they will even put your pizza on a screen to avoid contamination in the oven (even though their ovens cook at such a high temperature (1200 degrees) they don't take the chance which I think is really great. My son is TNA also.

I recently had a local pizza place tell me that the equipment some of their food is processed on might be greased with peanut oil! ARG! So we don't go there. But now I'm wondering, is this happening other places and we just don't know to ask deep enough questions?
For now I will stick with our current line of questioning and adjust if experience dictates.
Machines greased with peanut oil - gah!

Here in Toronto Canada it is very rare to find a restaurant that uses peanut oil
All I can think of is Le Papillon uses peanut oil for their french fries, and Baton Rouge uses peanut oil for their french fries.
Not many places use peanut oil as it is REALLY EXPENSIVE. Most places seem to use canola oil or vegetable oil these days.
