We have been using Gerber Graduates Fruit Juice Treats (in the baby food section). I haven't called, tho.

Betty Crocker is the trusted brand by most on this site. They have excellent procedures / labeling. We also use Kellogg's brand fruit snacks which I am very comfortable with. You might want to call both these manufacturers so that you feel comfortable with their response...it always feels good to hear it straight from the company! My daughter has peanut and egg allergies and has eaten these snacks for over a year with no issues.

Thank you both!! I really appreciate the fast responses. Off the subject, but does anyone know if there are unsafe soda's? My son doesn't get them, but will get a drink of mine every once in awhile. I just wanted to make sure i was only drinking the "safe" kind.
Thanks again,
Carey

I haven't had a chance to check the BC fruit snacks but I have found that Kellogg's fruit snacks contain coconut oil. For those that have TN allergies, this would be something to watch out for. So do the Disney Gummy Vitamins.

Is there a reason that coconut oil would be unsafe for people with tree nut allergies?

Coconut is not a nut. So unless you are actually allergic to Coconut you would be fine with the products. Coconut does grow on a tree but is not a nut.
Take care

It's a very referenced website around here for those with TN allergy. It shows you how all the ""nuts"" are related and not related and different types of ""nuts""

We use the Welch's. I called on these and they said they are safe. My little guy loves them. He also likes Yogo's. I am not much for the fruit snacks for myself but the yogos are pretty good.
