I know the Search engine is 'down' right now, but there is a thread under Manufacturers about Peppridge Farm and/or goldfish. There may even be several.
At one time the pizza ones were said to have had peanut oil, then the ingredients were changed.
Hope this helps.

I've contacted Peppridge Farm twice in the last year. The first time I received a letter back from them saying that goldfish crackers are made on dedicated nut free lines. The second time, the told me exactly the same thing. The pizza flavored crackers no longer contain peanut oil. The crackers do contain anatto (artificial color) and I know many people are allergic to that, could that be it?

I would be most suspicious of the soybean oil, since soybean is in the legume family with peanuts. My son is allergic to both. I hope your child is feeling better!

Milk, I asked this same question a couple of months ago. My son ate some Pepperidge Farm goldfish crackers and immediately his lips and mouth area swelled up. He is allergic to milk, but had never had a reaction to the small amount in baked product. And even when he ingested straight milk, he did not react with facial swelling, so I posed the same question. The responses I received were similar to these here. Possibly in my son's case it was the milk that bothered him, but thought I would share that the goldfish gave us a scare also.

Just wondering, since your kids have not had reactions, so you seem to have the take the right amount of precautions, what do you do about birthday parties? If one of your kids is invited to a birthday party where peanuts are being served, do you let them go? It seems like at birthday parties, kids are often running around with food and there is no hand washing. Just wondering how you handle this. Thanks.

Most of the birthday parties that we attend are given in honor of close friends. I can only ever remember going to one that peanuts were served. The mom put them up as soon as I said that Kate could'nt have them. She felt really bad. I always remind them to ask me if they can have something before they eat it. I always stay with them during the parties. After reading about reactions children have had, I thought maybe we had outgrown it. That is the reason I have had them re-tested. I was so sad that we had not. Has anyone gone to Dr. Wesley Burks at the Arkansas Children's Hospital? Thanks for your reply. I am new to this so I was afraid no-one would write anything back to me!

Hi, I went to Arkansas Children's Hospital yesterday but just to get Will's blood drawn. We see Dr Melissa Graham here in Little Rock. My 13month old was just diagnosed yesterday, and I am a complete basket case. I would love to talk to you. Do you live in Little Rock? Wendy Musteen

I live in Ar and would love to talk to you. We use Dr Melissa Graham at the Little Rock Allergy Clinic. My 13month old tested positive for Peanuts and Eggs yesterday. I need to talk to someone who is going through this.

I just left you a note, but I can't find it. I don't know where I posted it so if it turns up, this will be a repition.
I'm sorry about your little boy, but it will be o.k. It is just a way of life for us. I was mortified when Kate began school, but I have educated them about their allergy and what to do if a reaction occurs. I live in Booneville, MS. I heard about Arkansas Children's Hospital from a mutual friend whose children are also allergic to peanuts. I did'nt know anything about a peanut allegy until Kate was diagnosed with it. I pray daily for their safety and for my own peace of mind. I think your being upset is perfectly normal. I received an e-mail from Dr. Burks and I am going to take both children for an evaulation in his clinic. I will let you know when it is. You may have to give me directions. Educate yourself and practice common sense in every situation is the best advice I can give you. Kate has not had a reaction since she was three and had only one before then. In a report for school, she was to list something she ould change about herself. She said, " I am just a little girl, so I don't need to change anything yet.'' At this point I asked her about her peanut allergy and she said that she knew God wanted me to watch her extra careful. I had always told her that but I never knew if she understood it. Sorry this is so long. Write back soon!
