We did use this in the past. We really liked it until we had a reaction. We called and were assured that the plain rice was made in a separate facility. That there wasn't any chance for cross contamination. However, after we had a reaction we sure don't trust them. Plus we received to much conflicting information about the processing and packaging that we decided that they really didn't understand cross contamination at that point. They make alot of really good products and they also make products with nuts. It really depends on your comfort level and reaction level as well. My dd and I are react to trace amounts as well as being contact reactive to all nuts.
You can call them directly they are quite friendly and usually respond quickly.
If you are looking for a good rice we just found one called Kopali Organics at Whole Foods. It is really good. They are no nuts in there facility. They have a website and respond rather quickly.

Thank you for taking the time to email us. It is very important to us to hear from our consumers with their comments, concerns, and suggestions.
If you feed your 4 year old the rice, it is milled and kept in an allergen free environment. There is no cross contamination because it is kept separate. However, the rice cakes

our trucks only hall rice, no nut of any kind. Second, the facility where the rice is stored and bagged is a nut tree free area. There is no chance of cross

Like I said we used their rice before and loved it when both my dd and I had a reaction we called and after many conflicting stories chose not to use it anymore.
You make the choice dependent on your own comfort zone and give it a try.
We now use Kopali Organics and have not had a problem with it.
