avoiding them ... though the food allergy network did report something about them being safe.

Have you tried Hershey's kisses for chocolate? Or the plain Hershey's milk chocolate bars (The ones that come in six-packs.)? Both of these have consistently been safe for us. Good Luck! Kristi

Have you contacted Nabisco?
My PA child eats the plain Oreos and Chocolate filled Oreos without a problem. I think the PB Oreos are produced on a seperate line, please check first to be sure, and post their reply. Thanks!

I was scared of the Oreos as well once I saw the P/B Oreo at the store, but I LOVE the White Chocolate covered Oreos and just knew that I wouldn't be able to eat them due to the labeling. But I just bought a box the other night (of course I read the label) and no peanut warning. I've eaten a few from the box with no problems.
I trust the labels so when I do not see the "trace peanut" or "manufactured in a facility" warning, then I feel safe.
I also kit Hershey kisses safely!
Just read your labels and enjoy! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I called the 1-800 Number on the Oreo box and they reassured me that Oreos do not contain Peanut Flour and are made in a different facility than PB Oreos. I call the toll free number on every single item I question, they are very responsive and helpful.

While regular oreos do not contain the peanut stuff, the mint ones contain peanut flour. I bought a package, thinking "I've always been able to eat oreos" and then I got them home to realize the last ingredient is peanut flour. I gave them to my sister.

A note for travellers (if there are any left in the world...)
Oreos have just started to be sold here in Australia. They are made in China (!) and have a "may contain" warning. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

The regular size Oreo's in Canada are safe and I plan on using them to make "Ladybug" treats for my daughter's Senior Kindergarten graduation celebration.

Oh btw -- since my last post about the mint ones, they have since removed peanutflour from the list of ingredients....yay!
Unfortunatly, they do have those peanutbutter ones, so we must all becareful of the "may contains"

Not to mention that a single oreo wreaks havoc with my milk sensitive digestive system.

Regular oreos don't contain dairy anymore. They changed the formulation a while back.

Then I wonder because both my son and I cannot eat Oreos lately. Chocolate, they don't list what makes up the chocolate, could there be milk there? And soy oil is a big problem, maybe it is the soy oil. In any case Oreos are off of our list.
I just made a batch of oatmeal raisin cookies to find Crisco is soy oil based so I can't eat those either, and I made them for me!

We eat regular oreos, uh oh oreos. They do not have a warning. I do not buy the chocolate covered ones after the mix up they had last year with covering the PB ones and putting them in the wrong packages.
