I know most of us do not use Pillsbury products anyway, but just wanted to share that their break-apart cookies now contain peanut flour. It is labled well, I was just surprised as I have not seen peanut flour in many things. The walmart tube cookie brand said "Made on same equipment that processes milk" I wonder if it is safe? I generally trust walmart's labeling.

Is the pillsbury break-apart cookies made by general mills? Or multifoods? It's so confusing when one brand is made by more than one company.

I'm sure there are probably others who do not think the way I do about this, but if I see an allergen label on something - like you mentioned - I generally feel the company labels well, so I'll consider things 'safe' (as long as the allergen isn't peanut, of course!). IOW, I'd consider the cookie you mentioned 'safe' because if they labeled for the milk, chances are good they'd label for the other allergens, too. AGAIN, this is just the way *I* think about it. Comfort zones...
About the Pillsbury... I'm thinking that the recipe probably hasn't changed, just the labeling. If the cookies also have General Mills on them, then I'd say it's just better labeling.

I think the same way Lam does about this. I'm always glad when I see a product labeled for other allergens but not peanuts or nuts. I tend to figure it should be safe for my kids.

I always felt the same way about products who labeled for other allergens but drastically changed my thoughts on it after my son had two severe reactions to Kellogg's. Kellogg's labels for every other allergen (USA specific) EXCEPT peanut!! Now I don't trust many labels anymore... my grocery list has majorly dwindled especially in the last month or so since Timmy has had 2 anaphalactic reactions [img][/img] .
Take Care,

I don't purchase Kelloggs cereals - mainly because General Mills does such a GREAT job of labeling.
I'm sorry to hear about your son's reactions. What were they from???
