Hi everyone! I have 3 1/2 year old fraternal twins - boy/girl. BOTH twins were diagnosed as P.A. in 3/98 after tasting a pb&j sandwich. So far, we haven't had an accidental exposure. This past week, I read an article (Sept '99 issue of Delicious) re: Straus Family Creamery in Calif. According to the article, they feed their cows "peanut meal" among other things--I found this very alarming. Although we have never purchased any of their products, my husband called the creamery and they said that "since they became 'certified organic' they no longer feed their cows the peanut meal." He asked if it's common to feed cows peanut meal and they answered "it's a commodity food and other dairies may use it as feed". Has anyone heard of this?? Can drinking pasteurized milk produced by cows who were fed peanut meal cause a PA reaction?
