I called Keebler today on their products mainly Cheese its and graham stiks and was told that if it is in any way even under the same roof that it would be listed as may contain.. I noticed that Nabisco and Kraft had not yet put may contains on it yet. Do you trust one of these companies more than the other? I still don't feel comfortable giving him Honey Maid graham crackers. Would love to know your thoughts.. thanks, Kathy Ann

my son eats this brand often. he eats cheezits and he eats the graham sticks in chocolate, honey and regular flavor.

we have been using Honey Maid forever and are just buying the chocolate graham sticks today - the other flavors (honey and cinnamon) have been fine. We also eat Cheezits a lot too without incident. I was just checking on the chocolate honey grahams on the list here... its so nice to have everything already here. Thanks Andrea

yes we eat the chocolate and other flavors. take care

I trust them both. Actually I'm pretty sure that Nabisco owns Kraft. Whenever I've called, they also have told me that they label even for cross contamination or state the possible contaminate in the ingredient statement just in case.

For example with Cheese Ritz bits, peanut is the last item on the ingredient list so I'm sure it's because they share lines or are made in the same facility as the peanut ones.

I have started to trust Keebler more too. Their cookies seem to have good labelling. I once called about the vanilla wafers (they taste better than the Nabisco ones) and they said that if there was any chance of cross contamination, it would be indicated on the ingredient list.

Seems like they have more safe options now than they did a few years ago.

reraising. Consensus please. I've checked several Keebler threads and think I'm going out to buy the "Sandies Fudge Drops". No advice, just a tentative step....

I trust Keebler's labeling. They are owned by Kellogg's, which I trust, and feel very comfortable with responses from their reps.

I'll give them my seal of approval too.

We've seen warnings appear/disappear/reappear on products DD likes, so we trust that it means something.

And they seem to label for cross-contact VERY well. Always get good answers when we call.

FWIW, our repetoire is pretty limited, though-- club and Townehouse crackers, vanilla wafers, and grasshopper cookies. (As DD sometimes tolerates dairy, sometimes not...)

They are the only people we've found who make EGG-FREE vanilla wafers.

I give a thumbs up to Keebler too, although like Corvallis Mom, we use very little of their stuff...but they're the only crackers that ds can eat on shared equipment with dairy without getting hives. We've used Townhouse, graham crackers, and their bug bites, which are like teddy grahams (don't ask...boys [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/rolleyes.gif[/img] )Meg

Bug Bites? Boys? Not just them! I LOVE Bug Bites - the kids have to share with me!

Both brands are trusted by us. Keebler in particular is so positive with their responses and their labels are very clear.

Keebler just came out with a Multigrain version of the Club Crackers. My kids just tried them and love them!

For years we've avoided Keebler. When I first called about 5 years ago, they were well behind the other companies in terms of labeling. However, I recently checked their website, and was impressed with their allergen information. Was thinking of trying their products if others here had good experiences.

We just started using Keebler again a couple of months ago. Because of their poor labeling in the past, it took me a LONG time to trust them (about 9 yrs). btw the fudge drops are yummy. Unfortunately I'm on a no-trans-fat kick so we aren't buying much of any brand of cookies other than oreos.

Our family trusts Keebler but not Kraft.

Reraising. I'm trying to find some crackers for my DS. He is also sesame allergic and I was wondering if anyone with sesame allergy eats Club or Townhouse crackers safely. Thanks!

we eat townhouse and ritz crackers. my son is PA, TNA and sesame

On May 19, 2007

Thanks tidina! I know your guy is sesame allergic as well, do you let him eat Lender's bagels? Sesame really limits our food choices, and I feel like I need to try a few new things (and I'm sick of baking all of my own breads!)

Thanks again [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

On May 19, 2007

Good to know - I think we are going to try the bagels this weekend! Thanks...
