safe pretzels revisisted


Can anyone help me on safe pretzels for a PA/TN child. What about pepperidge farm pretzel goldfish? or any other brands. We live in the Northeast if that helps with brands Thanks Nancy and Drew :-)

I don't believe I've ever come across pretzels that weren't safe. Just pretezels.

I typically buy RoldGold (think that's the correct spelling).

If I'm at all concerned, I'll read the label. [img][/img]

We haven't had any problems with pretzels. I know for sure we have had Rold Gold and Snyder ...I can't think of the other brands... but I just go by the labels.

We've been using Snyder's of Hanover, but they have come out with some peanut butter versions of pretzels, so I don't think they're necessarily safe any more. I think they're planning to change their labeling to reflect this, but they haven't so far.

From the label, it looks like Rold Gold should be safe, but if you do a search here, you'll find some older posts about people who have had reactions from Rold Gold pretzels.

So I guess what I'm trying to say is that I'm also looking for a safe brand of pretzel, because despite their current labels, Snyder's and Rold Gold may not be free of cross-contamination.

i buy Rold Gold because they are by Frito Lay and i trust their labeling. If the goldfish pretzels dont list any nuts or peanuts in the ingredients then they are safe because Peppridge Farm lists peanuts and tree nuts! good luck!! PS MY pediatricians office gives pretzels or stickers as a treat. i think thats weird. i tell them i would have to look at them so just give him a sticker.

Several weeks ago I saw that Snyder's is labeling some of their products as "manufactured on same equipment" or "may contains." If I remember correctly, anything that had a flavor added to the outside had a warning, while regular pretzels did not. At least I think that was the case. I bought Rold Gold that day anyway.

bf just bought some snyders pretzels - long and skinny kind, no flavoring - and the label reads something like 'made in a facility that handles peanut butter.' so they've changed their labeling, at least, and now i'm no longer comfortable having them in the house.

i've never eaten them myself, but bf does like pretzels every now and then. guess he'll have to try rold gold!
