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

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

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!
