Hi,
We have been using Ritz Crackers and have never had a problem.... We just check each box, each time. We never buy any snack size box or bag though. I believe Ritz is made by Nabisco.
Don't give up on cheese & crackers yet.

jdickson, check out the Club cracker thread here. My 2 year old pa son eats Club crackers w/cheese every day for lunch. He also eats Town House crackers on a regular basis. I think both of those are Keebler. Thanks for the warning, though. Next time I go grocery shopping I'll check out the ingredient labels for Keebler crackers.
-Sorry, the Club crackers post is under Snacks/Recipes.

jdickson,
What type of crackers are you refering to? I spoke to someone at Keebler several months ago and was assured that Townhouse, Zesta, and their honey graham crackers were safe for my son who is allergic to peanuts, eggs, and dairy. She said they might be changing bakeries for the Club crackers in the future so we stay away from them. Also, they have many bakeries and it might depend on where you are located in the US. I was in the grocery store today and checked several boxes and did not see the may contain warning on any of them.

hi everyone....thanks for all the ins and outs of crackers! Amazing what we can educate ourselves on!
I found just the Keebler everyday saltines, and I actually ate a couple....then started reading the carb count, and noticed the peanut warning! I still am getting used to all the new labels....I usually check everything, but I get careless, when it is those everyday things....I was just surprised! It was the green box? Said traces of Peanuts or sesame seeds may be found.
Funny, I tested positive for sesame seeds, although I used to eat them on buns all the time....i avoid now just in case....

We have always used Barbara's Lite Rite Rounds, which look like Ritz but have less fat. I also feed him several brands of the fat-free saltines...will have to check my box but he has never had a reaction to them. Anything from Keebler makes me nervous, really.

My daughter had an allergic reaction that landed her in the ER on Friday. The only thing I think could be cross contaminated were the Keebler Fudge Stripe cookies. Does anyone have an 800 # for them. There was nothing on the labels and you cannot e-mail them through their website [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Hi! I have found to be on the safe side, I never buy anything from Keebler since I find that many of their products have possible contamination of peanuts. Now of course any thing else can too but alot of their cookies states that "may contain traces of peanuts". I will not buy anything Keebler. PERIOD. my son has been healthy and reaction free for 4 years since last reaction. I would rather err on the side of caution. This is purely my opinion and it seems to have worked for Mike!(my PA son)

Has anyone had a specific problem with Keebler's TownHouse crackers? I did not see a "may contain" warning on the label, but i have been having reactions to something and i am trying to figure out what is causing them. Thanks!

The last time I called Keebler was in regards to the Sesame Street products and I was told that their labeling will not be universal for a few years yet. In other words two boxes of cookies from two different facilities - both chance of cross contamination but only one labeled properly. I stay away from Keebler. I have called Nabisco and they told me that they have good labeling practices but I have to read the ingredient list. I too have bought Ritz crackers for my PA/TNA son and he likes them.
