<p>Just received the same canned response as Lam! Sent them another message telling them that this is totally unacceptable.</p>

<p>Here is the reply I received from Kraft Kitchens re whether they plan to produce pb Oreo cookies in Canada (still not a clear answer). At the top of this, you will find the e-mail that I have just sent asking them to please answer the specific questions I have asked them. So, you're actually reading things a** backwards, pardon me.</p>
<p>Thank-you for your reply. However, you have still not answered my question about whether or not there is a concrete barrier separating the part of your facility on Lakeshore Blvd. West between the peanut products producing part of the plant and the part that is "peanut free". I have been told this on numerous occasions, but since I am not in Toronto, I am not able to physically check to see if this is correct. It is the Mr. Christie's Plant on Lakeshore Blvd. West.</p>
<p>I would appreciate an answer to this question.</p>
<p>Also, did you pass my comments re the labeling of Peanut Butter Chips Ahoy onto anyone in Marketing or Labeling?</p>
<p>Many thanks and best wishes,<br />

<p>I saw the new PB Oreos on the shelf at Kroger for the first time Saturday. I had also written to Nabisco and received the same "sanitation procedures" response that many of you received. Anyway, they were right next to traditional Oreos on the shelf, so that alone was reason for me to not buy the regular ones. The regular Oreos did not have a "may contain" lable. I had to explain to my 3-year-old pa son about why we couldn't buy them. His questions tore my heart out.."Do our Oreos at home have pb on them? Why is there pb on those Oreos? Why don't the people take the pb off those Oreos? I guess we'll have to wait for Oreos that don't have pb. Oh, Mommy, I'm so worried about the pb on those Oreos..."</p>

<p>Hi,<br />
I just saw the PB Oreos in our local Foodtown. I had all 3 kids with me today and had to explain to them why we couldn't buy ANY Nabisco products. I know I'm probably going overboard but you know what, I don't trust them anymore. My 5 yo PA son understood, my 9yo non-PA son was devistated. Why do I feel so guilty? I know I shouldn't but I do. </p>

Found it! Please note the "every reasonable precaution" statement. What do the call "reasonable"?
Thanks for visiting our web site. We appreciate your interest in our
Nabisco products.
Nabisco products are not routinely produced on dedicated lines, and our
production schedules are subject to change. If a product is produced on
shared equipment, every reasonable precaution is taken to avoid contact with
the eight major allergens recognized by the FDA--wheat, soy, peanuts, tree
nuts, milk, eggs, fish, and shellfish.
Should cross contact with a food allergen in our production environment be
unavoidable, appropriate labeling of the food allergen is implemented. When
appropriate, allergen labeling is used in addition to, and not in place of
good manufacturing practices.

Here's mine. I'll post any reply I get.
Dear Nabisco,
I have read many posts and replies concerning your introduction of peanut butter Oreos on the PeanutAllergy.com website. My son has a life threatening allergy to peanuts and Oreos is the one and only cookie we bought. We will no longer be buying this product (and therefore, no other Nabisco cookie). While I had previously thought that Oreos were "safe" for those with a peanut allergy, I have learned that perhaps this is not the case. Is it true that most of your manufacturing lines are designed to accomodate many different products, thus running nut-containing products on the same lines as no nut-containing products at any given time? I am aware of your "cleaning" practices, but if any of you have children, perhaps you understand my reticence at trusting something like this with my child's LIFE. It strikes me as odd that such a (formerly) beloved and trusted company is so allergy-UNaware. With such a huge variety of products, how is it possible that there cannot be dedicated lines for non-nut products? Surely all of your Oreo products alone bring in millions of dollars. Your company is losing a lot of customers with the introduction of your peanut butter Oreo. Sure, the peanut allergy population is relatively small, but our voices are BIG and are heard by our many family members, friends, and anyone willing to take up a cause.
Good-bye, Nabisco!
Sincerely,
Dawn

I just called Nabisco and was told that the pb oreos are not presently run on the same line as any of the other Oreo products. Will some of you other guys call to see if they give you the same answer? The lady I spoke to was very nice and answered my question directly - yes she read me the cookie cutter answer of every reasonable precaution is taken...yadda, yadda, yadda but then she looked up the answer to my question. Which is good because I wasn't going to let her off the hook with just that cookie cutter, read the label, answer.
