I have an adult PA/nut... what brands of bread do you all use? I used to use just wonderbread... is that safe from nuts/peanuts?

Thanks to all!!!!

some wonderbread is safe. you have to call them and find out the nut free plants code. in my area, PA, its 087 and 68. we use peppridge farm and havnt had a problem. they even label for sesame seeds which we avoid as well.

I double checked with Interstate Brands about 2 months ago on the products we use: codes wonder 58+61(buns), wonder 54(bread), hostess 00(hohos, twinkies, etc...) were still peanut/tnut facilities at that time. They are very helpful. They also make quite a few other regional brands including JJNiessen. You can call them at 1800-483-7253.

Perhaps check your local version of Sara Lee. Each brand will differ by location because they typically use local baker. SO, you will need to closely read labels & perhaps call their customer service number on packaging.
Hope this helps a little.

Thank you all so much... I guess I will have to call on some... not sure if some of the breads mentioned are available where I am (I live in B.C. Canada) Hopefully I will slowly learn what i can and can't eat without being so scared...

We are not from Canada - however - my crew really loves when I make bread in our bread machine.
Have you considered that? You can control all of the ingredients and have a great variety of breads.
In addition - bread machines make fabulous pizza dough!

Sara Lee told me they do not put allerts on their packaging. I can't be bothered calling every time I shop.

they have codes for where the bread was made and some of their facilities are nut free. in my area of PA the codes 68 and 087 are nut free. that goes for bread or the hostess desserts. i use wonder bread but didnt give to my son. i give him peppridge farm hearty white or the buttermilk flavor. he didnt care for wheat or oatmeal kinds.

We eat Roman meal. I have never called, but my PA child eats it daily. We have eaten Sara Lee hamburger/hot dog buns and Aunt Hatties and I have called - they are all made at the same plant that does not use peanuts here in AZ. I called awhile ago, so you may want to check before buying.

Wow I was so disappointed to hear about Sara Lee. Why would they do that??
Anyway, I wrote to another bread manufacturer, Aunt Millie's. They're based in nearby Indiana so I'm not sure if it's just a regional brand or not. In any case, they don't even use any peanuts in any of their manufacturing. And they label for all possible allergens. Elliott has been eating it happily.

We recently discovered Alvarado Street Bakery products, and DS eats their sprouted wheat bread, as well as their bagels...
[url="http://www.alvaradostreetbakery.com/index.html"]http://www.alvaradostreetbakery.com/index.html[/url]
Under FAQ's, it states that they never use Peanuts or Tree Nuts in their bakery.

This product is available in Northern CA at Whole Foods and Andronico's. You can also order over the web...

They have only started labeling for possible allergens recently-maybe the in last year or two I think? Anyway they do use tree nuts in some of their facilities (unfortunately for us, the facilities that make bagels and english muffins [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] ). Here is the info I got from them a while back:
[i]None of our plants use peanuts. Two plants use tree nuts, Kalamazoo and Coldwater 2. Although every effort is made to minimize the chance of cross contamination, the possibility does exist. The other 5 plants do not use any tree nut, or nut product at all.
Our plants do have a letter before a numerical code that tells us what plant the product is made at. This is usually located above or alongside the sell by date.
A = Jackson
B = Fort Wayne
C = Kalamazoo
E = Coldwater
F = Sidney
G = Coldwater2[/i]
