I can't seem to find anything on this topic through the search option, but maybe I'm just incompetent.
Anyway, my DS has MORE than multiple food allergies, and I'm looking to try a rice milk for him, but have heard about some manufacturers with cross contamination issues, with dairy, and nuts, etc.
Does anyone know if there's a brand that doesn't have cross contamination issues? I'm thinking I heard that Lundberg had a safe rice milk? I'd LOVE to be able to find a brand at the regular grocery store, if possible, but know that it's probably not likely to avoid all possible contamination issues.
Thanks for any help!

We actually use Rice Dream, but not all that comfortable with it and don't use it often. They used to have on their site that they were peanut/tree nut free but I think they took it off. They make soy milk, but I don't think they make any nut milks, but haven't checked lately. I have read that you can make your own, just haven't tried it yet.
A lot of the companies make almond milk, so be careful.
I just checked their website and they now do make hazelnut, looks like I will be learning how to make our own.

My PA son drinks Rice Dream every day. We get the little boxes for his school lunch and the big cartons for cereal and to drink at home. We have never had a problem in 7 years of using this product.
