Anyone out there given these to their PA/TNA kids ? They are labeled to contain Wheat, Milk and Soy in bold, so I feel reasonably comfortable with them. But you know what its like when you give something new for the first time, just wanting to hear someone else has tried them with no problems ! I bought 2 boxes of them for my daughter to take for the snack tomorrow so Im hoping someone out there will reply tonight.

They're actually shortbread cookies in individual packets.

Are you reading the label on the box or on the individual packets?
I just posted a message a few posts down about Keebler Gripz. These are tiny chocolate chip cookies. On each of the sealed packages is an ingredient list. Underneath that list is a warning 'CONTAINS WHEAT, MILK AND SOY INGREDIENTS'. It does NOT list any warning regarding peanuts or tree nuts. However, on the box it comes in there is also a warning 'MAY CONTAIN TRACES OF PEANUTS AND EGGS'.
I contacted FAAN on Monday regarding the difference in labels/warnings. The individual packs could easily be sold at games or snack machines and those with allergies would not know that there is a potential for a reaction. FAAN e-mailed back and said they had enough info to contact Keebler and were in the process.

Yes, I read your post which is what made me nervous about this company. Thanks for making such an effort with FAAN - hopefully something good will come of this.

You know, I've never been able to get comfortable with Keebler products. It's just as much a gut reaction for me as it is posts here that indicate a reason to be cautious. In my 40 years, I've learned to trust my instincts, particularly when it comes to matters of safety, so I'm going to continue to avoid them.
I'm in no way advising others to avoid Keebler products just because I do. I just thought I'd put my strangeness out there for you to laugh at. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/biggrin.gif[/img]

Same here-I can't get past the problems a few years back when their labelling was so horrid. I am thinking of getting some fudge stripe cookies with no warnings for dh and I to eat but I'm not comfortable giving them to the kids.
