Has anyone had a problem with Lawry's Taco Seasoning? The ingredient list includes "natural flavor" and I'm a little too nervous to use it. It's getting frustrating having to make special meals for my son every night! I was hoping he could eat taco's with us...

If Lawry's isn't safe, what brand of Taco seasoning is safe?

Thanks for your help.

Check for the post "Taco Seasonings?". I just called Kraft about Taco Bell today and was told there were no egg or peanut product in the TB home Originals.

There was also other discussion within the last month about Lawry's. I know I posted their website in whatever thread that was.
I believe it's [url=""][/url]
As I posted in the taco thread, we use Old El Paso. Aside from store brands in the town that I live in, Old El Paso is the only kind that we can buy. I did try a store brand recently because I felt quite comfortable with how it was labeled.
Hope this helps. [img][/img]

We only use McCormicks, due to the response I got from lowry's. I do not use any of their products.

Below is the email I received from my inquiry off the Lawry's website about their products. I asked if they had any products made on dedicated nut-free lines...I guess not after reading their response.
Common allergens, such as peanuts or tree nuts, would be listed in the ingredient section of our packages, and not included in "Natural Flavors".
"Natural Flavors" are unique flavors created for Lawry's by our flavor suppliers, and we purchase the flavors as a single component. Since the formula of the flavor is proprietary to the flavor supplier, we do not have a list of the flavoring ingredients.
We do not operate Allergen Free manufacturing facilities, but after the production of any product containing any common allergen ( such as peanuts) the facility does what they refer to as a special cleansing process that is over and above a normal cleansing process. With the intent to remove as much particulate from the line as possible. Even though we take this extra step, it is no guarantee that the product would be allergen free. So, based on the users sensitivity they may or may not wish to consume any processed products.
We hope this information is helpful.
Your friends at Lawry's
