My 11yr. old is fatally allergic to peanuts and has always eaten oreos. He also loves them. I have never had a problem with them, but if you have heard of one let me know and I will certainly stop buying them.

We eat regular size Oreo's all the time and consider them safe. What we DON'T do is eat any min size/snack size/odd size packaging Oreos, as those (at least in my area) have a "may contain" warning. I have not heard of any problems with the regular oreos, but maybe I missed something?

I agree with kelly01. We eat the regular size original Oreos and now the new "Chocolate creme" oreos too. Of course, we read every package each time we purchase...

We still use oreos, too. Chocolate, regular, double stuff. Never had a problem with them, and never saw a warning on them.

We have never had a problem with Oreo's either. My pa son takes them for snack every single day for school. Oreo's and Chip Ahoy's are the only two cookies that I allow my son. Yes I also read the bag everytime that I buy them for fear of someday they might say " may contain ".
Best of luck,

Thanks KATHYANN for asking this question. I read that there was coconut oil in the ingred. so I never gave my PA son them, (He never had coconut before) so I was afraid to try. My Husband eats them all the time and my son always asks but we say no. I will try him on it now feel a little bit more assured that peanut and coconut have no correlation!

Safe! In Canada anyway, the large regular Oreos are safe. They are Cayley's favourite treat. Now if I could only get her to eat the biscuit part and not just the white filling... [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
