I have never found Quaker to be helpful when it came to questions regarding pa. They also manufacture Gatorade and on some flavors list brominated vegetable oil (but can't seem to tell you whether this is actually peanut oil or not) Even though I know we would probably not react to peanut oil we stay away from it. I have been frustrated enough when dealing with these manufacturers that now I just don't buy any of their products. I much prefer General Mills who prints their allergens in bold on their packaging.

Nooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!!!!
My kids LOVE the little Chocolate Drizzle and Cinnamon rice cakes!
This is just one more example of companies having NO CONCERN FOR PUBLIC HEALTH and NOT CARING about people with food allergies.
They should rot in HE-doublehockeysticks!
I will never buy any of their products ever again.

Actually, we should not be too harsh as Quaker [b]does care[/b] about people with food allergies. First, they gave us advance notice of this change. Second, even though these specific products will not be safe any more which is regrettable, I would not stop buying their products as they have the complete line of peanut-free granola bars available.

I have never seen any cookies, crakers, or foods here in California that are labeled "peanut free" the way they are in Canada.
I don't understand why they don't export them.

The OP is talking about Quaker in Canada so the same thing may not apply to Quaker USA. You might want to call Quaker to ask about the products you use that are currently safe.

That's a very good point. I will call the company next week and see if it applies to the USA. I'll report what I find out, in this thread.
I noticed a few months ago that their regular large rice cakes now have a peanut warning on them. One more reason to ALWAYS read the label no matter what. Just like Snyder's pretzels, sheeh -- you just can't trust anything.
I agree that it's very good of Quaker to "warn us" in advance about upcoming change of manufacturing and nut contamination, but I'm angry that they need to have nuts associated with their products at all. They take perfectly good products that we can eat -- rice cakes -- and ruin them for us. I have to wonder if the oatmeal is next.

OK, I called the American Quaker company. The customer service rep said that as far as she knew, the American company had no plans to change the Mini Delights product. She did not hear of any changes planning to be made to the product or its labeling.
However....I'm not sure if I totally believe her. Recently the large Quaker rice cakes started carrying a peanut warning. So I wouldn't be surprised if some of their other products start carrying peanut warnings as well. I will be keeping my eyes open, and so should anyone who buys Quaker products.
I wish they sold those "peanut free" labeled products here where I live! **sigh***

You know, that's odd. I recieved an updated warning from Anaphylaxis Canada earlier this week, that said that it was only the products produced at an American manufacturing facility that were affected (not rice cakes produced in Canada). Here's what they emailed me:
"Recently, Pepsi-QTG Canada, the manufacturer of Quaker
