pI called Keebler today after spending quite a bit of time looking at all their cookies at the supermarket. All except the vanilla and rainbow wafers were labeled with may contain labels and I wondered why the wafers did not contain that label. The rep said that it was either an old label or a box that was made on a dedicated line. I gave her codes from the box and she told me the box I had was not made on a line with peanuts or nuts. My son's class is making a cupcake tomorrow with two vanilla wafers as part of the decoration. We do not buy packaged cookies at all. Would you feel safe with a dedicated line cookie, but not a peanut/nut free facility???/p

Yes, I would. It's enough for me to know that the product is made on a dedicated line instead of shared equipment. Less chance of pnut/nuts getting into the product.

Anyone have the phone number for Keebler/Sunshine?
Never mind, I found it - it is 1.877.45 ELVES. I called about the Sunshine Cheez Its and was told that all of the Keebler/Sunshine proudcts now label "may contain" for cross contamination. Since the Cheez It's don't have the warning, they should be safe for my DS to eat.

Heather,
Interesting about the Sunshine Cheez Its. We have some. Doesn't have the warning. Hmmmmm. We have to keep an eye out on these in the future.
My kids love them and have never had any type of problems/reactions with them.

We(myself and another mom, not dd) recently had zingier flavor(not sure had extra spices in it besides just cheese) of those cheese its(the Sunshine kind) and they were very yummy. I did check tha label in case d wanted any, and there was no warnings or peanut ingredients. I generally call, but knew I had seen this here recently another time that they are labeling now.
I must say, I actually could not find a single cookie of theirs without a warning one time. So, they are definately putting the warnings on the cookies. I might branch out and try some nilla wafers or such if they are labeled okay. becca

becca,
you may want to check about the egg in the Nilla Wafers. My son is PA and egg allergic and we have not tried Nilla Wafers b/c of egg, I believe. He eats chips ahoy plain and oreos - double stuff, regular and uh-oh oreos.

Ah, right. That is probably why I never end up getting them. Honestly the egg thing bugs me more than the peanut allergy. To bake normally again.......becca

My son eats Nilla wafers all the time, too. In fact, I feel pretty comfortable with Nabisco. It's just that the Cheese Nips (by Nabisco/Kraft) have MSG in them which I don't like - Cheeze Its don't have MSG.

I was just at the store & was also turned off by the MSG in Cheese Nips, so I checked the ingredients in the Sunshine Cheese Its, and it did have MSG as well.
