Has anyone tried these? There was no warning on them and the ingredients look ok.

I've eaten them, but haven't called to find out about shared lines. No problems...they are delicious!

Who makes them? I remember Klondike used to make them but I haven't found them in a while. I think Klondike has a warning on them now, too.

in Arizona anyway, the Oreo Klondikes (more like an icecream sandwich than a Klondike bar) do not have a warning of any kind. Some varieties of the Klondikes have a shared equipment or may contain warning and some do not. So...for one of their products to not have a shared equipment warning sort of tells me that there isn't peanuts on that line...since usually they label for it.
just my opinion

Last year Breyers had warned us that PA people should avoid Klondike bars as they are exposed to high amounts of peanuts. I had called just about ice cream and they warned us about these- not sure if the manufacturing process has changed now-

then why the h*ll don't they label appropriately? good gawd, where is their common sense and sense of duty to the public?
(that _wasn't_ facetious...I'm actually a bit miffed...if there's the possibility of a problem, then label for it d@mmit)

The brand is Klondike by Unilever. I didn't see Breyers on the label at all unless they are also made by Unilever. My daughter has almost eaten the whole box, but she does not have PA. Won't be able to give it to my son til I buy the next box. Plus, I want to call on them before he has them.

I just checked the website and it says they have a very strict allergen handling policy, with disassembly and washdown between runs. Their FAQ is at
[url="http://icecreamusa.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/icecreamusa.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php"]http://icecreamusa.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/icecreamusa.cfg/php/enduser/std_alp.php[/url]
- - scroll down to the allergen FAQ.
I looked around the website at their other products, and there are alot of really peanut-heavy ones. I've always assumed that the ones w/o an x-contamination warning were safe, but with that many peanuty ones (e.g., a Reeses one, a Planters one), I think I'll call the company before buying them again.

We eat the Oreo sandwiches when we are in the US, but in Canada they have a "may contain" warning.
