I called to check on some cheese today, and the CD lady was totally clueless. All she could tell me is that their products don't have nuts.
Does anyone use their stuff? (string pref.)

I think I'm going to call again because I was also told that there were no nuts. Now however, I'm confused and will call again to clarify.

esmom: When did you call?
HJK, please let me know what they say. I wish I had a safe cheese to use. What do others use? I'd love to have a baked potato with cheese all over the top..or grilled cheese.. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

Sargento, Precious, and Horizon. All nut free and all safe. We use them all the time. Almost daily.
Take Care

We used their mozzarella one time real recently...I felt ok based on their website (it was a weekend so I couldn't call)...under FAQ- ingredients their website as of right now (PLEASE RECHECK to verify as this cannot be edited if anything changes) reads:
Q: Is there peanut or soy in your products?
Sorrento Lactalis, Inc. does not use any peanut or soy in any of our products.
Q: Are there any types of allergens in your products?
People can be allergic to many types of things. The food industry has identified eight major allergens that are considered to be a threat to consumers. They are dairy, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, fish, crustaceans and wheat (gluten). The products manufactured by our company are dairy products, but contain none of the other allergens with the possible exception of gluten (see below). If you are allergic to dairy products, please keep this in mind.
They don't specifically mention treenuts in the first example, but do list them in the second question.
I would love to hear who uses them or doesn't!

I actually just called Horizon and they said they basically can't gurantee any allergens in products. They do a flush/sanatize after every batch? hmm.

Looks like another previously safe company is now off limits (horizon). [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img] I use Kraft cheeses but I know a lot of people aren't comfortable with kraft.

Although I'm not crazy about Kraft and won't use a lot of their products...we too use their cheeses (just my opinion- individual milage may vary!)

I've been using Polly-O mozzarella regular and part-skim for years without problems and my son has never had a problem with them either. I know many people don't trust them but so far it is in my comfort zone. I think I've had Sorrento also, my MIL uses this brand. I have also used an italian brand of fresh mozzarella I don't remember the name but it was red, white and green packaging. I've only used this a couple of times.
If there is a truly safe cheese I would like to know but for now I will stick to what I've been using for years.

I use Kraft cheese (american) to and Land O Lakes (cheddar) without problems. The only cheese my son eats is mozzarella and only on pizza.
