Hi all I am not new to the pa my 5 yo son has been allergic since 11 months old and I am very thankful that he has only had one episode. My question is does anyone have a list of the other words used instead of peanut? Does that make sense? Like I just found out that arachis oil is the same as peanut oil. I have never herd this and I want to be safe. Please can someone help me? I am in the process now of starting a support group for pa children in my county so this would be very helpful for the parents also. Thank you

Tracy, that is so weird that you asked that question. I came on tonight to ask the very same one. I go insane in grocery stores standing there reading ingredients if I didn't buy it in produce!!!! I often wonder too if it could be labeled as something else. I do know that sometimes labels such as"natural flavoring" could be potentially dangerous since they may think of peanuts as a natural flavor. I would like some other names as well.

Hi Traci and Julie,
There is a thread about this exact topic on the "Living with Peanut Allergy" board and the topic is "Words to Watch out For on Labels." There is some great info there. This thread was started back in April by Chris. Hopefully that will help you in your search to find it.
Stay safe.

Sorry, Ortega is Nestle not Hershey. I was surprised because I thought Nestle was good about labeling.

We've used All free and clear for 6 years, since our allergist recommended it. No problems with it.

We have used All Free and Clear without incident for some time. I have spoken (recently) with the folks at McCormicks, they make a gazillion different kinds of seasoning packets (like 'taco' 'meatloaf' 'chili') they assured me that ALL of their DRY mixes/spices are okay. (however they have some "wet" things, gravy, sauce, etc. that include 'natural flavors' and that they work with other vendors on those, so they told me to 'avoid all of the 'wet' products and enjoy all of the 'dry'. They also sent me a ton of coupons, very freindly and aware!

We tried All free and clear here...Gave up because both of my sons' eczema got significantly worse. Since only ds #1 is pa, I don't think it is that, just that there was something in it that their skins won't tolerate. Kristi

I use All free and clear on all my son's clothes and his itching was dramatically improved (I used to use Tide).

We have used it for about 5 years. The other brands I used made my son's excema flare up. So far we have had no problems with it except when it is sold out in the store! LOL I have never contacted the company though.
