Hi, thought you all might like to hear about my conversation with a consumer rep at Quaker. I called the Canadian toll-free number today and learned that their rice cakes [all sizes and varieties] are made in a nut-free plant and contain no nut ingredients. The rep also explained that if the rice cakes or other products that they make had any chance of cross-contamination then the label would be changed to read "May contain trace amounts of ...". If there are any nut ingredients in their products they are always labelled. She seemed very aware of our concerns and volunteered the information about cross-contamination and the nut-free plant status before I even asked those questions.

Take care, Kathryn

That's good to hear about QUaker. I know you need to watch out for some of their cereal products. Cap n Crunch, the non-peanut variety made my daughter ill about a year ago. There was no mention of peanut products in the ingredients. They were very unhelpfull (in the states) when I called the toll free number

I recently purchased some Quaker Rice cakes and was surprised that the Apple Cinnamon variety listed peanuts as a possible ingredient. Just FYI...I don't think ALL their rice cakes are made on peanut or nut free machinery. At least the rep you spoke to seemed knowledgable.

Doesn't Quaker make a peanut butter flavor rice cake? If so, the Apple Cinnamon is probably made on shared equipment which is why is had the "may contain" warning or listed peanuts as an ingredient. I have yet to find a peanut in a Nestle Crunch Bar but it lists peanuts as an ingredient.

Hi, I just wanted to clarify that the rep I spoke with did not have information about U.S. product lines. She was speaking about only those products manufactured and sold in Canada.
Take care.
