pHas anyone been in touch with Newman's Own? I have emailed them, but not heard back yet. They recommend snail mail as a more reliable way to get a response. There is no phone #./p

Thanks for the heads-up on this! I have on occasion used their products, but not any more!

I emailed Newman's Own regarding their popcorn kernels and this was the reply I got:

Thanks for posting this! Did you happen to ask: Does the not labelling for cross contamination apply to their sauces and salad dressings as well?

I did not ask about their sauces and dressings, but since she said "all of our products" I assume she means they don't label for cross-contamination on anything!

Thanks for raising this thread!! I called the co. to report my kids reaction(under kep my kids safe). They said they use the FDA cleaning standards and there is no risk of cross contmination. They do make a walnut vinegrette in the same facility. We may be getting the dressing tested. FAAN is looking into finding someone to test it. I'll keep you up to date.

Hmmmm, disappointing response for a company that claims to have a social conscience.

McMelon, did FAAN get back to you? There is a place in Nebraska that tested something for me. Email me off the boards and I will let you know about it.

This is dissapointing. I began using the brand new Pop's Corn with no transfats. My son has eaten it a couple of times already.
I'm going to email them.

mom2nickie, No FAAN hasn't gotten back to me yet. She said it would take at least a week. If I don't hear soon I will e-mail you. Thanks for the connection to a testing location. Melody

I am so bummed. I just spoke with Newman's and learned about the cross contamination issue. We have used their products without incident but will not anymore. What is so hard about using a "may contain label"? Does anyone know of a safe ready made tomato sauce that is comparable?
