Yesterday I noticed a can of the new "Pizza Flavored" Pringles listed peanut oil on the package. The plain Pringles can did not list peanut oil. I will contact them for more info but I thought I would pass this on as it is confusing when this occurs. Thankfully I taught my daughter to always check ingredients even in familiar products. She immediately said, " Mom, I eat Pringles all the time but i guess its a good thing I looked."

pThe other day while I was in the grocery store I picked up a can of pizza flavored Pringles and couldn't find peanut oil printed anywhere. I thought maybe I just missed it even after reading it over several times. Wow, this is great to hear! Thanks for the info./p

pThat is so GREAT! I think whether we like Pizza flavored Pringles or not, we should all go out and buy 3-4 cans just to show our appreciation./p

pVERY CONFUSED! I emailed Pringles regarding this issue just to clarify that they were no longer using peanut oil. The response I received is that the peanut oil is used in the seasoning of the chips, they are not fried in the peanut oil. The rep from Pringles also stated that according to research that the peanut oil is highly processed and no longer contains the proteins that cause the allergic reaction so they consider the product safe. This was sent from Karen/USA Pringles Team, email [email]nobody@pgprod.isc.cw.net[/email]. Why are we getting conflicting info from them?/p

pI read the label of a Pizza Flavored Pringles can at the store this week and there was no mention of peanut oil at all. Hopefully this person just hasn't gotten the word yet that it has been eliminated./p

pMaybe they have a "canned" email reply. I called the phone number on the package and was told no more peanut oil. I've also checked the pizza flavor while grocery shopping and did not see peanut oil listed. A lot of companies that I've called have a pre-written response which makes it really confusing. See the thread regarding Nabisco and you'll understand. /p
pI forgot to put in my original post that there is a date code on the bottom of the Pringles cans. Please check it you before purchase./p

pHere's a reply I just got from Pringles (10/13/00). My inquiry follows their response./p
p"I'm glad to hear that you are a label reader, as formulations can change at anybr /
time. You'll be happy to know, none of our current Pringles products containbr /
peanuts or peanut by-products. Pringles is the only product produced in ourbr /
Lexington plant./p
pCross contamination has never been a problem for us. Our cleaning processes arebr /
very intense. Being a mother of three, I can understand your concerns. I'mbr /
glad you took the time to contact us./p
pKarenbr /
USA Pringles Team"/p
p"I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who is severely allergic to nuts,br /
especially peanuts. Can you tell me which of your products are safe for her tobr /
eat?/p
pWhen I ask which of your foods is safe for my severely peanut allergic daughterbr /
to eat, I am asking about issues of cross-contamination in your plants. I canbr /
read an ingredient list. What I want to know is which of your products are runbr /
on manufacturing lines that are not shared with nut containing products. Evenbr /
if your equipment is thoroughly cleaned between runs, I do not want to take thebr /
chance of feeding my daughter anything that has been run on the same line as abr /
nut containing product. Other companies can tell you specifically which ofbr /
their products are produced in plants free of peanuts or other nuts, whichbr /
products are produced in the same plant as nut containing products but onbr /
dedicated equipment that is nut-free, and which products are produced on sharedbr /
equipment with nut containing products./p
pThis is the information I seek, and I hope someone at your company will be ablebr /
to provide it to me. Thank you for your help/p

pI have been told that "hot processed" peanut oil is safe (various manufacturers have told me this, and one Doctor), but I am still not prepared to take the risk... The "cold" process does not remove the allergens./p

Jan,
Thanks for the the heads up on the Pringles. I have always given my son the plain and sour cream and onion pringles with no problems, but had not tried to pizza flavored ones yet. I understand that Procter and Gamble (makers of Pringles) are very allergy conscious, so I have always bought their products.
Good luck and stay safe

I spoke with Proctor and Gamble just the other day. The woman searched her computer and came up with Skippy peanut butter and Pizzeria Pringles as the only ones with pn products. I was inquiring about something completely different!
Always read every label..ingred. change w/o notice.
I was wondering if there was a possibility of cross contam w/ the other Pringles flavors.
