You might want to consider getting more information from Quaker as I understand that they do try to isolate nuts from non-nut ingredients, I think that they run nut products on different days and they do dismantle and high pressure spray wash their equipment after each product is run. Perhaps you could ask them to send you a letter from a production manager answering these questions? Hope this helps.

p(edited), I'm not sure where you live, but check out the store-brand oatmeal. We live in the US in MA, and my PA daughter eats the instant oatmeal from StopShop, the maple brown sugar flavor. So far so good!br /

pI am constantly eating Quaker Oatmeal! I've never had a problem, but I guess I'll have to be extra careful. Thanks for the warning, guys!/p

pMy daughter recently had a reaction (the one that ate at BK), She also did have oatmeal cookies that my mom made about an hour and a half before she ate at BK at her after school program. The thought did cross my mind that it could have been the cookies also. I thought a peanut reaction would usually be within minutes after eating it? I just gave her dinasaur eggs oatmeal for supper. Thank God she is O.K./p

pTo answer your question about how long does it take for a reaction. My son didn't react to his first bite of peanut butter until 2 hours later. Hope this helps in your search./p

pMy son does eat the instant Quaker oatmeal on a regular basis. He likes the "cream" variety pack - peaches n' cream, blueberry n'cream, etc./p
pWe haven't had a problem yet, so I'm going to continue to feed him those. /p
pAlso, I'm noticing a lot of people on this website are from Massachusetts. I'm pretty sure there is a pn allergy support group in Massachusetts-I know it's listed somewhere in the Support Group board, if anyone from the Bay State is interested, they/we should go check it out./p

pIf you go to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America website: [url="http://www.aafa.org/chaptersandeducationalsupportgroups/educationalsupportgroups/searchbystatetype/edu_groups_list.cfm"]http://www.aafa.org/chaptersandeducation...groups_list.cfm[/url]br /
You will find information on 3 Food Allergy support groups in MA: South Weymouth on the South Shore, Georgetown on the North Shore and Foxboro (Walpole). I happen to belong to the Foxboro one, it is very good. It meets once/month, it is for all foods not just peanut, it is well moderated (the coordinator recently won the community service award from FAN), and has had some very good guest speakers (ie, doctors, emt, lawyer, dey labs sales rep)./p
