Are these safe in US? Haven't bothered to check these lately. Has anyone seen these safe in US? Would be great if we could get these!

If this is the case in the US too, we would be thrilled. We also buy Special K bars every time we are the grocery store, but we miss the real granola bars.
I love that companies are starting to understand how little things like this help so many people!!!

The quaker chewy granola bars at walmart all have a may contain label. They also sold peanut butter flavored ones. This is in the US. I suspect this is only going to be a Canadian thing.

Found the apple ones at my A&P in Ottawa last night. Big red Peanut free label and each individual bar is also labeled. The back of the box shows they will be bringing out 6 flavours, and the box ad notes "lunch box friendly".
My daughter was thrilled and is taking one to school to show the other PA girl there and one to gymnastics to show the other PA gymnast. They are also egg free, so safe for our house.
Hooray!

Just wanted to let you know that there are still the old boxes on the shelves that have a may contain warning. The new boxes have a big red banner that says peanut free.

Im guessing, Canadaian ONLY.
AFAIK, the Quaker graonla bars (10 pk/box) STILL have the PB versions.
When I bought the boxes last yr, Id opoen it up and grab the 2 PB ones for work. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
It's been a yr though... and Sara doesnt like the other ones anymore, so they are al out, I guess [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

I found the apple crumble flavor at Walmart in Montreal, Quebec yesterday. The box has a huge red banner at the bottom with a "peanut-free" label on it and also a picture of a peanut with a red line across the peanut, which my kids get very excited about when they see!!
The other flavors will be out at the end of April and we can't wait to try them all. Very exciting to have a real granola bar to eat. These are great tasting too.
