pNabisco is making a new cookie if anyone doesn't know it yet. It hit the shops this week,I was told. It is a Peanutbutter chip ahoy! I had a break down in the shops, That is the only cookie I gave Jason. After telling dad, I called and talked to Kathy. She said that the chip ahoys in the blue bag are not made in the same facilities that the peanut ones are made in,but to alway read the bag because they will list it on the back it that changes. I still feel a little weird about it so, I think we will stay away from it for now. Just thought ya'll would like to know./p

Thank you for letting us all know. I give Jacob Oreo's and that is it. Just thought I would inform you that in the June-July FAAN newsletter they stated that the Mini Chips Ahoy chocolate chip cookies list pecan meal on the ingredient statement.

I received the following information to-day from Dan Bellisario at
1-800-668-2253, who called me in response to an e-mail I had sent
concerning Christie's products.
The Christie's products that I currently buy and now know for sure
are "safe" are Triscuits, Premium Plus Crackers, Ritz Crackers, Oreos,
and Chips Ahoy, unless they have the "may contain" warning on
them.
I have also brought up a number of other threads where
Nabisco/Christie's or one of their products was being discussed to
also place the information there.
Well, I have information to post finally from Nabisco (owners of
Christie's in Canada).
So, I will place the information I received to-day here but also in
any
other threads where it may be appropriate.
I had e-mailed Nabisco re Christie products in December. I had not
had a response. So, to-day, I e-mailed them again.
I received a prompt telephone call from Mr. Dan Bellisario of Nabisco
Canada. He can be contacted at 1-800-668-2253.
He indicated to me that the products I am currently buying are all
completely safe and run on dedicated lines. There is actually a
concrete barrier between the parts of the manufacturing facility that
contain peanuts/nuts and the area that is manufacturing without
them.
He also said that where there is the slightest chance of
cross-contamination, Christie's very clearly labels their products.
They work very closely with AAIA and had sent the alert to FAN.
Also,
because of their allergy awareness, they do not use peanut oil in
any
of their products and make sure that they monitor their products
very
closely.
He told me that if I had any concerns about any of their products in
the future to be sure to contact him, by name and he would
follow-up
for me. He also explained that the reason I had not received a
response earlier was because the person that had been dealing with
my e-mail was no longer with the company.
So, I'm quite happy with this and say kudos to Christie's and
Nabisco
Canada!
Best wishes!

That'a great to hear Cindy. When Wade had his reaction it was after
eating a mini ritz peanut putter cracker.
Because of this I had always been too afraid to let Wade eat "any"
of the Ritz brand crackers. This is great news becuase now I can buy
a box of Ritz crackers for Wade to bring to pre-school, and he'll have
"round" crackers just like all his little buddies!
Regards,
Katiee (Wade's mom)

Katiee, I can really understand why you wouldn't want to see any
Ritz crackers of any sort in your home after Wade having reacted to
the pb Ritz one.
But no, I think it's fairly safe to say that he'll be okay now going to
preschool with a box of Ritz.
When I send crackers to school with Jesse, I usually send Triscuits (I
like their fibre component and he likes them) and then I will
alternate them with the plain Ritz ones. And for some strange
reason, both of my children love the Premium Plus crackers and will
sit here and eat a whole 1/4th fo the box as if it were a treat!
I think what I liked most about what Mr. Bellisario had to say was
that they worked closely with AAIA, so they are allergy aware.
And it was them that sent the alert to FAN which raised my concern
in the first place.
I did ask him about Nabisco products in the U.S., hoping to get some
answers for other people here, but he can only speak on behalf of
Nabisco Canada (and Christie's), which is understandable.
At any time in the future, if we have any concerns, I truly believe we
should call him directly. He was just so concerned and his response
to my e-mail was so immediate.
Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
