A friend of ours bought a box of Keebler Gripz. They are tiny chocolate chip cookies. She gave me an individual packet to read the label on. There is a warning that it contains wheat, milk, and soy ingredients. No mention of peanut or tree nuts. So I let my son begin eating them. Since he really seemed to be enjoying these bite size cookies I asked to see the box so I could search for them in the store. Sure enough in capital black letters right underneath the warning, as I stated above, is MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF PEANUTS AND EGGS. This is NOT on the individual size packages even though it lists all the ingredients and the warning regarding milk, wheat, and soy. I gave my son benadryl and he seems fine.

Be careful!

I sent an email to FAAN telling them about the differences in the box and packets labels.
They responded this morning saying that I gave them all the info they need to know to contact Keebler.

thats great. why put a contains statement on a package and the may contains just on the box??? hope Faan gets them to clean up their act!! my son got some fruit snacks, those low cal ones that are out now. they also make oreos and such??? i think by kraft, not sure. well it was from a classmate with other stuff as an xmas gift and i threw them away even though the labeling sounded good they were an individual pack and he never had those before.

This what I got today re:gripz
Thank you for contacting us regarding the ingredients used in our products. We appreciate your interest and are glad to share the following information with you.
We understand and share the concerns expressed by consumers who are affected by food allergies. We have been one of the leaders in the food industry in devising manufacturing processes to reduce the risk of allergens from contaminating allergen-free products. We have worked extensively with allergy organizations and research groups so that we understand the seriousness and complexities of food allergies.
All of our product packages have labeled the top eight potentially allergenic ingredients (i.e. peanut, tree nut, cow's milk, egg, soybean, wheat, fish and shellfish) in a separate box directly below the ingredient list on the Nutrition Facts side panel. Because product formulations can change at any time, we encourage our consumers to check the ingredient statement on each package they purchase for the most up-to-date information on the ingredients contained in that product.

We have these and there is no warning! My son has eaten them many times without any problem. Now I am going to have to go through the pantry and reread them.

Ok I went into my pantry and NO WARNING only wheat, milk and soy. I have the Chips Deluxe and the Double Chocolate. I looked at the box and packages. Niether has a warning and they are by Keebler. I also have the Gripz nacho cheese crackers and wheat soy and milk. These are by Sunshine. Do you know what brand they are that your friend had?

My daughter ate a few of these yesterday that a neighbor's baby fed to her. (She's 9 and loves babies [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img] ) Anyway, she got an itchy throat from them but was fine after a dose of benedryl.
