I got the same thing. This is so frustrating. My husband called them and was told that they would label, etc.,etc. He told them it still means we won't be able to buy oreo's again if they put a warning label on it. I'm just really ticked about this whole thing right now. BTW, my husband said that the CSR reported three other calls about the same thing that day. Apparently no one's listening.

I just sent an email too! I also put this link on another non-related board to plead with them to help and send an email. Power in numbers, right?

I got a reply about the peanut butter oreos. I was told that none of their products are run on dedicated lines. If I can find the e-mail I'll post it.

My heart is cold and numb. They were there, at the store today -- peanut butter oreos covered in chocolate. I checked a couple other packages of plain and chocolate, but none of them indicated that they were run in a plant with or on a line with peanuts. I had to restrain myself from destroying the store display (reminding myself that the store didn't decide to make pb oreos).

I sent my email. I urge all of you that have kids like mine who love Oreos to do the same.

Sent my e-mail. Here's what I wrote:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I am concerned, on behalf of my many American friends with peanut allergy, about this new PB and Chocolate Cream Oreo. Please keep Oreos safe for peanut allergic children! Do not run the new PB Oreos on the same line with regular Oreos. Our peanut allergic children have very limited snack options to begin with, but many schools, day cares, etc, know that regular Oreos are safe for peanut allergic children. Will they check the labelling in the future if a change is required due to cross-contamination with the PB cookies? I don't think all will - and it may endanger the life of a peanut allergic child. Please don't run the cookies on the same line. It could be a matter of life and death. Thank you for your attention to this matter.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I hope we at PeanutAllergy.Com can make a difference!

I think we should point out to them that consumers who deal with food allergies are very brand loyal, we don't price compare or clip coupons the way other consumers do. They will loose a huge client base if they manufacture the pb oreos with the other oreos.
I hope they listen.

Done! This really makes me sick. How do I explain to my 3 year old that something that was "safe" is no longer safe? I guess my folks will have to drive to Canada to get our oreo stash when they travel to Maine this spring. What a bummer!
