Thanks for the info. I would question Ben and Jerry's. I have heard that they don't label when things are made on the same line or is that Haagen Daz? Anyone had experience with Ben & Jerry's?

If you go to Ben & Jerry's website - [url=""][/url] - you can email and ask them for yourself, or go to the FAQ section.
Good Luck!

Thanks so much for taking the time to post all of that info. I think it is important to hear the information other people have gotten as compared to what we have been told. Your list closely matches what I have been told. The only differences are you have talked to several places that i have not.

PAGirl, thank-you. This would have also been really good in the thread I started about what manufacturers we feel comfortable with in this same discussion heading. Would it be okay if I cut and pasted it into that thread as well as it being here?
Many thanks and best wishes! [img][/img]

Mazzio's Pizza, Cici's Pizza and Pizza Inn are also safe. Our local Pizza Inn owner has a PA grandson.
I had talked to our local Papa Johns who called the corporate office and they said it would be best for my PA daughter not to eat their pizza. Dominos said basically the same thing. Last year my daughter was in Kindergarden Klub and domino's did a demo and had pizza for everyone. I had to keep Sara home that day.(her teachers wouldn't work with us) I hoped they've changed. I'll call and double check.

It would be perfectly alright with me if you cut and pasted my post [img][/img]. I have a few new safe companies to add, too:
Peeps Marshmallow Chicks and Bunnies - No pnut products at all.
Red Baron Pizza - Labels
Digorno Pizza - made in safe facility
I also have talked to these two companies that I do not feel safe about, but it probably just depends on your "comfort zones":
Martha White - the rep. couldn't think of any pnut products they make (but that doesn't mean they don't make things with pnuts), and they do not have dedicated lines
Edys Ice Cream - I thought it was safe, but when we called them about the vanilla bean flavor, they said that they do not have dedicated lines. Vanilla bean is the first flavor to be run on it's line, and when they are done with all the flavors, they take all the machinery apart and wash it all. They also do not label because they feel that there is absolutely no chance of cross-contamination.
Hope this helps!

supermom 1023 -
I'm just curious as to why Papa John's advised your daughter not to eat their pizza. I called our local franchise and the manager did a thorough check of all their ingredients and told me no peanuts/peanut oil or nuts are used. My daughter has eaten their cheese pizza several times with no problems.

I just found out that Mayfield Chocolate Milk is safe! (yum!) The rep. said that their ice cream is run on shared equipment, and they are not required by law to put that on the labels. They did say that the chocolate milk is completely safe (the rep was very helpful and even called the lab about the chocolate milk!). Maybe we can ask them to post on Any thoughts?
Stay Safe and God Bless! [img][/img]
