I am always worried about walking into a bakery and making sure that the baked goods are 100% nut-free and there's no cross-contamination, let alone going to the store and picking packaged baked goods off the shelf, even if they say that they're nut-free. The thing that worries me the most is cross-contamination because I've been a victim of it too many times. Allergy Eats definitely gives me a good list of bakeries in my area but I'm still nervous about buying packaged baked goods. How do you get around that? How do you ensure that they're 100% nut-free and free of any cross-contamination?

i do a lot of research on my local bakeries and i talk to the manager or owner who know how everything is prepped. i stay away from the packaged baked goods. sometimes the package can be deceiving in terms of stating that something is nut free but they're packed in a facility that may contain nuts. i just don't risk it.

I learned to bake years ago and will only eat my own baked goods or baked goods that my family makes. I pretty much avoid them when I'm out and don't buy from a bakery because I've dealt with cross-contamination in the past even after I was told that there were no peanuts or nuts. When I bake I have total peace of mind and it's therapeutic, I really enjoy it :-)
