I think I asked this before, but maybe not this directly...
Are we sending mixed messages by asking Nabisco to "keep the regular Oreos safe", when they've been made on shared lines all along??
Maybe this is one of those comfort zone issues. Maybe some of us feel the regular Oreos HAVE been safe all along, even though they've been on shared lines - without proper labeling?
I'm concerned that we may be sending the wrong message. Isn't the labeling at the heart of the whole issue? Perhaps for some, but not for others? I'm getting a bit confused, I think.

Check back on this thread to my post of 4/26 - I included the Kraft CEO's name and address. If you can't get it for any reason let me know and I will re-post it.

Amy (going nuts)
Thank you, I must have missed this when I was crusing through the comments today. I think that we all need to send this woman a letter. I will be writing my letter tonight.

I e-mailed my sister in regards to finding out about pb oreo's. From what my sister has told me PB Oreo's are not made in the same facility as regular oreo's.
They are produced with an outside manufacturer. My BIL works for Kraft in New Jersey but was originally from Nabisco.
best wishes,

Much to my family's dismay, I no longer purchase Nabisco products. Stupid me thought everything was on dedicated lines all along. I do feel now that the cross contamination Dylan had in Feb. was due to Chips Ahoy (in the blue bag) which I didn't think at the time.

I sent my plea to Nabisco and will call tomorrow. These companies are all about dollars and cents. If we continue to hit them up with the fact that our entire school(s) will not allow any oreo product if it turns out that these cookies are made in the same facility, we may make headway. I will not give up!!!!!!!

I went to Food lion Saturday and guess what was at the front of the store. PB/choc Oreos! I was so mad all the way through the store I could hardly remember what I came for. With all of the Peanut allergy awareness going on you would think that some of the people would get the idea. Why mess up a good thing. I emailed my 2 cents!!!!!!!

I received a long written letter from Nabisco essentially repeating what we've heard before; that the PB OReos will be made in a separate facility or on separate lines, but to check the ingredient statement just in case a last minute change necessitates running them on a different line.
I came away from the letter feeling that they are probably safe, and that Nabisco is covering it's collective you-know-what. But then the neurotic mom voice pipes up and says, but what if? I really hate this, and certainly don't think anything has really been resolved.

When I sat down at the computer today...this is what I found. My year old son had written this letter which I will mail to Nabisco.
Hello I am Thomas R------- of North Carolina. I am very upset that you make oreo cookies with peanut butter. I am severely allergic to peanuts. Even if you wash the machines you could still send me to the emergency room. So me and 1 million other kids will never have oreos again. They where my favorite cookies! I am 10 and am trying to make a difference for the first time. So please get rid of the peanut butter oreos. If you do you will make millions of peanut allergic kids thrilled and able to eat oreos again.
Maybe our kids can get to them. Let's try to get them to write letters and mail them and see if anything happens.

Hi everyone! Been a long time. Just finished my grocery shopping and ran across the peanut butter oreos. Needless to say - I'm ticked! Thought I'd see if anyone else had found these goodies and I see I'm way behind the times. Just glad everyone is taking action.
What I'm wondering, specifically for Cayley's Mom, is if she can remember what specific thing happened in our campaign with Kellogg's that made them sit up and take notice (even though we didn't like the response). It seems to me we really got their attention and if I remember correctly it was inadvertently through a CSR - but please correct me if I'm wrong. I see references to the Nestle issue - but really I don't think an American campaign will be as great as anything that happened with Nestle Canada.
Another avenue to explore media wise would be through Katie Couric (sp?) - doesn't she have a young relative with PA?
As always these days - gotta run too soon. Let me know what I can do beyond the letter and email campaign!
