Nabisco Reduced Fat Cheese Nips contain Peanut Oil, I contacted Nabisco via telephone only for them to tell me, they will send me coupons
There should be regulations to label the products that contain peanut products
Is there anything we can do?

HI TINA,
ARE YOU SAYING THAT THEY HAVE UNDCLARED PEANUT OIL IN IT? I THINK THERE IS SOME SORT OF LAW ON THIS. THEY DO HAVE TO TELL US WHAT IS IN THE PRODUCTS. DOES ANY ONE KNOW. HOW TO GO ABOUT GETTING THEM TO CHANGE THE LABLE? LORI

Peanut oil is listed in the ingredients on the Cheese Nips, I discovered it after my allergic 2 year old daughter ate a few, my daughter and husband took a trip to the emergency room that evening. Thank goodness she only ate three, and suffered from a mild reaction this time, benedryl helped. Nabisco just shrugged the situation off. I explained the severity of peanut allergy to Nabisco, and suggested that, a noticable label be placed on the products containing peanut oil or nut products.I never imagined peanut oil would be in cheese crackers.

your post caught my eye because I love cheese nips (especially the reduced fat ones). However, I have never reacted to them before and my allergy is severe -- in other words, the smallest trace or contamination will send me into shock (example, I once went into shock on a camping trip from a spoon that had been dipped in a peanutbutter jar, and washed with soap and water!) Peanut oil, when processed, does not seem to affect me. For example, I once ate french fries cooked in peanut oil at the beach without a reaction, and later on discovered the peanut oil. However if I touch peanut oil on a surface or human hand, I will swell and get hives. The Food Allergy Network recently wrote an article on why processed oil does not always affect peanut allergic people. Only reason I mention all this is to ask if it's possible that undelcared peanut flour might have been used? Could it have been that particular box? This frightens me - thanks for the warning.

Just a note..
My sister was visiting for Easter and while we were shopping considered buying a package of cheese nips, but I found "hydrolized plant protein" on the label - as you know, often a sign of peanuts. I didn't see a mention of peanut oil or flour, however.

Not to add to anyone's stress level, but since I am ana to peanut (& it seems the research points to protein, which hot pressed oil WOULDN'T contain) and I am sensitive to all other legumes, ANYTHING that contains HVP, Veg oil, Soya anything, are a don't buy. You could do your selves a favour and develop a taste for snacks that aren't suspect.

I checked the Reduced Fat Cheese Nips and it does *Not* say peanut oil (unless that has changed, my pa dd has eaten these), but what DOES say peanut oil are the 100-Calorie Packs Cheese Nips.
I can't get to the ingredients of the reduced-fat Cheese Nips on the Nabisco site (won't let me), but here are the Ingredients for the 100-Calorie Pack Cheese Nips off the Nabisco Web Site:
Ingredients: ENRICHED FLOUR (WHEAT FLOUR, NIACIN, REDUCED IRON, THIAMINE MONONITRATE {VITAMIN B1}, RIBOFLAVIN, {VITAMIN B2}, FOLIC ACID), SOYBEAN OIL, CHEDDAR CHEESE (MADE FROM CULTURED MILK, SALT AND ENZYMES), PARTIALLY HYDROGENATED COTTONSEED OIL, SALT, AUTOLYZED YEAST EXTRACT, CORNSTARCH, LEAVENING (BAKING SODA, YEAST), MONOSODIUM GLUTAMATE (FLAVOR ENHANCER), SOY LECITHIN (EMULSIFIER), VEGETABLE COLOR (ANNATTO EXTRACT), PAPRIKA, CULTURED WHEY, SODIUM CASEINATE, LACTIC AND ACETIC ACIDS (FOR TARTNESS), SPICE, NATURAL FLAVOR, MALTED BARLEY FLOUR, PEANUT OIL.
