Thank you for posting!
I do not purchase these, would love to get my picky eaters interested to add some variety to their diet, but glad we do not buy this stuff now that they are being recalled.
Still wondering how walnuts are involved in Spaghetti meals for kids....Doesn't sound very safe to me...

SF, I have to laugh that you would like your picky eaters to be interested in these meals. My ds is such a picky eater; these meals are nothing more than a bunch of the junk food kids like, packaged as a dinner. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] My son would eat them every night if we would let him!
My guess about the walnuts is that maybe somehow some pesto got into them? Sometimes pesto has walnuts.
I don't know, though, just a guess...
We stick to the corn dog, chicken nugget, and pizza varieties.

California Mom: no problem, go ahead and laugh. The only thing my 6 year old eats is PIZZA!!!! (only the kind from the pizza shop)
I am desperate for him to try anything safe and new...he won't even try!!!
Dinners here are so difficult that yes, I am willing to let him eat a packaged dinner! Sounds crazy, I know, but maybe if he would just try something he will get interested in trying other things.
The best things he eats are: Pizza, scrambled eggs, french toast, pancakes, crackers and cream cheese, string cheese, yogurt, Burger King chicken nuggets.
Without veggies, fruit, or meat in this diet, I better go back to the picky eater thread somewhere on here!! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
