I was just at a friends b-day party with my PA son. The mom hosting the party bought Keebler brand Club and Cheddar Sandwich Crackers. I immediately said my son could not have them because they may contain peanut (I'd read the labels many times before). They make lots of peanut butter snadwich crackers. She assured me she'd read the lable so I read it again. Sure enough.. she was right. It said " contains wheat, milk and soy ingredients". No mention of Peanut AT ALL. I've checked their website but can't find anything.
This is new. They have always said may contain peanut before. I'm not sure I trust it. Anybody know?

Isn't it strange, for lack of the right word, that even though the label says it's safe, that you just feel compelled for your child not to eat something. Talk about gut instinct. We live in the 'based on history' realm, don't we?

i had the same issue w/Keebler's E.L. Fudge cookies...when DD was just a baby i remember seeing Peanut Flour in the ingredients...now it's gone.
i called & they confirmed that the recipe had changed as of 6/06. i still can't bring myself to buy them, even though i want to so badly!

Ritz Bits Cheese Crackers (Nabisco) include peanut in the ingredient list. I didn't know that about Keebler's Cheddar Crackers. I started buying them this past year. My oldest (no allergies) likes them. My DD with allergies does not like them. The label looked safe and I called Keebler--was told they do not contain peanut and are not run on the same line.

I called on these a few months ago and was told if there were ANY chance of cross contamination with nuts that they would be labeled as so. Of course, I would suggest calling yourself to make sure you receive the same response.

I've called Keebler on several occasions and always get the same response - if it was made on the same line or in the same plant, it will say "may contain..." I've felt good about them - we've used the Multi-grain club crackers and the chocolate sandwich cookies with no problems.

Great! I called Keebler and they told me they were safe. I bought some and my PA son loves them and had no reaction. I think the cheese is sort of gross but one more snack my son can have and likes is good news in our house!

Are any of you allergic to sesame and tree nuts as well? Did you happen to ask about tree nuts and sesame when you called? I don't let my son have crackers because of sesame allergy, but maybe these are ok? I will call, just curious what they told you.

I didn't ask about sesame but the package says "may contain wheat and soy." when I called they said if it's not listed then it's not there. They said they are very aware of food allergies and they list all ingredients and "may contains" very carefully. We have no Peanut of Tree Nut and my son had been eating them without any problem.
