Rold Gold Pretzels


I thought recently I read here that Rold Gold was no longer safe. I called yesterday and was told all salt items were made in separate places . Has anyone gotten any different responses .. thanks alot, Kathy Ann

I haven't heard anything about Rold Gold. I usually buy the Lawblaws no name pretzels. If I find anything out I will post it.

I posted the info I was given about Rold Gold pretzels and also their Baked Tostitos under the Frito Lay thread. I was comfortable enough to purchase more of these items for my PN/soy allergic son today. As far as the PN/TN goes I was told there were none in the facility. As far as soybean oil or soy proteins, these are in their flavored products and the plain products which I buy are run first followed by flavors later in the week. They clean between batches and machinery is ripped apart and cleaned at end of week, then they start all over running plain product. I was told that there would be very little chance of cross contamination with vegetable oil on the products I buy and no chance of PN/TN.

Frito Lay makes Rold Gold.

We are comfortable with Frito Lay products and have called many times to confirm that they are safe.

We buy these often.

I received a letter from Frito Lay about 8 weeks ago in response to my phone calls. We have recently moved so it is in a box but I do remember that Rold Gold was scratched off my safe list because of the possibility of cross contamination. Many of their products including the new "natural" items were considered 100% safe in their eyes but not Rold Gold, popcorn or cookies. I now purchase all my pretzels from [url=""][/url] by the baCHMAN COMPANY. tHEy ASSURED ME THAT THE ARE pn/tn FREE AND HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS. The have a great kids pretzel in shapes with a taste of honey and my PA DD loves them. Sorry about the caps but no time to change becuase my baby is crying... As always just double check for yourself.

My head hurts, it would be so nice if these manufacturers could get their responses straight. Guess i get to call FritoLay again...

I just called Frito Lay about the Rold Gold pretzels and was told if the product was made on a shared line the label would read "this product was manufactured on a line that also processes peanuts". I am happy enough with that to send a bag of Rold Gold pretzels to the pre school for them to give my son as a snack since the package doesn't have any peanut warning on it.

I just called frito-lay to ask about their rold gold pretzels for my PA son. At first Harrison told me that he could not assure me they were made in a pnut free facility...just that the lines were cleaned so that there was no chance of cross-contamination. I explained that we do not eat products made on the same line as peanut products so could he specifically check on the pretzel rods. I gave him the plant number below the price. The 2nd and 3rd digits represent the plant location. For us '81' represents the canton OH plant which makes only rold gold product and is thus completely pnut free!!! yea!!! (note - I did not ask him about tree nuts.)

hi. my son has very high peanut numbers and low sesame and tree nut numbers. we avoid all. we use lays regular and wavy chips, and rold gold pretzels. we do use products that are made on sanitized lines. so far, so good, knock wood!! some lays chips do have a peanut oil warning. one kind of rold gold pretzels says on ingredients VEGETABLE FIBER?? didnt buy them cuz that freaked me but i have to call on that one day. so yes we use rold gold. i believe herrs is safe but it may also be a cleaning the lines kind of company

All nut products made by Lays are in completely separate facility than the regular chips. We use all Lays Products including the seasoned ones with out a problem. Its only the ones that contain nuts or a nut ingredient that we stay away from.

Thanks everyone! The kettle cooked chips looks so good but it has a peanut oil warning on it. That makes me so mad.
