I called Near East (rices and pastas) yesterday 9/15/99 on their Vermicelli with garlic. There is no mention of nuts or peanuts on the box, but they did have that natural flavorings ingredient. I asked her about my daughter being peanut anaphylactic and their products, and right away she said she would not recommend any of their products because they frequently use nuts and they use shared lines. She obviously has no hesitation and did not even try to claim that they clean their equipment. I have chosen to not use any of their products.
Sorry I threw out the box and forgot to keep their number.
