I would like to think so, but my gut feeling is that it's more likely FAAN simply published whatever statement Nabisco's Corporate Relations/Marketing department sent them. I would LOVE to be proven wrong, since we've nearly exhausted our supply of the "safe" Oreos.
Since we've received so much conflicting info from Nabisco about whether or not separate facilities are used to produce the pb version of Oreos, I question whether the marketing folks who contacted FAAN would have any better knowledge than anyone else at Nabisco would. They seem to be a company whose left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]
Someone please tell me I'm wrong...

Gosh, I hate to be a downer but has anyone noticed that regular Oreos contain peanut flour??? I have not given this food to my PA son for fear that he'd react to them. Is peanut flour SAFE????

I have never seen peanut flour listed as an ingredient in regular Oreos. Could you specify the package size and what store and state you bought it in?

I've also never seen peanut flour listed on the regular oreos. I did just see it on the new coffee flavor oreos yesterday. What a shame - sounds pretty yummy!

Just sent my e-mail. I will also call tomorrow. Unfortunately being a relatively new PA mom I didn't even know this was a safe snack.

Sorry, I misspoke. It was the Double Delight Oreos (mint flavor) that listed peanut flour as an ingredient, not the regular kind. Package was purchased in California.

Thanks for visiting our website!
The only OREO cookies that contain any peanut ingredients -are the OREO Double Delight
Chocolate Sandwich Cookies --Peanut Butter 'N Chocolate Creme, Mint 'N Creme and Coffee 'N
Creme varieties. These are all manufactured on the same equipment and because of the
potential for unavoidable cross-contact, the Mint and Coffee varieties list peanut flour in the
ingredient statement. Other OREO products, including traditional OREO Chocolate Sandwich
Cookies, currently are produced in other facilities that do not produce Double Delight varieties
and on production lines that do not produce peanut-containing products.

When I heard about the peanut butter Oreos, I automatically took all Oreos off of my personal "safe" list. Even though it's been a year since this thread was started, I emailed the company today, adding my two cents about what damage peanut can do to an increasing number of PA consumers.
