Around the holidays I went to pick up a package of Pillsbury Ready to Bake sugar cookies (tried to take the easy way out of holiday baking!) and I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw all the potential allergens on the label!

Something made me pick up the Easter ones that are on the market now, the one with the rabbit in the center. NO NUTS OR MAY CONTAINS ON THE LABEL! (Although the other version still clearly states a warning as I remembered).

I wrote them a note explaining how one sugar cookie has a warning and the other version did not and asked if I can trust the Easter cookie version. Here is their reply:

Dear Ms. Schmidt:

Thank you for contacting Pillsbury concerning ingredients in our products. As manufacturers and consumers, we understand your concern about potential allergens in the foods you eat. Our primary goal is to provide accurate information; and we believe this is best accomplished by referring to the specific ingredients listed on each product package. This is the most current information for your needs.

If one of our products contains any of the top 8 allergens (peanuts, tree nuts, dairy products, eggs, soy, wheat, crustaceans, and fish) or if it contains sesame, sunflower or mollusks, that ingredient is always listed in the ingredient panel, and also in bold letters just below the list of ingredients.

Thanks for posting your response. I too use the easter ones -- I also use the roll of dough -- sugar and chocolate chip because as of right now it is safe where I live -- I do check every package though.
My son has MFA and it is nice to have some quick options -- there aren't many.

I haven't tried these but I found this info on allergen inside: https://allergeninside.com/foods/ingredients/492840000553/Pillsbury-Suga...

It states on the allergen inside that they're free of tree nuts and peanuts but then has a warning that it contains 3 of the 14 top allergens. So I'm not sure about this. Hopefully someone else will have more first hand info for you to confirm whether they're safe or not.

I don't buy Pillsbury products because their allergy info is a bit vague but that doesn't mean that it's not safe to eat, this is just my personal preference. I like brands that give me comfort in knowing that the product(s) is made at a peanut-free and nut-free facility or made in a separate line that is totally peanut-free and nut-free.
