hi all!

I've been looking for that IM Healthy brand of soynut butter and cannot find it anywhere in Tucson. While I was in Trader Joe's today, I looked at their soynut butter for the heck of it. The crunchy style is labeled "NO PEANUTS" and also has an allergen warning: This product is made in a peanut and treenut free facility. One has to wonder, is IM Healthy their supplier? BUT - the crazy thing is that the smooth soynut butter, also is labeled "NO PEANUTS" but does not have the allergen warning about the facility.

SO - I called Trader Joes customer service. The woman was so incredibly helpful. We chatted a bit about the peanut allergy, that I am a frequent visitor of peanutallergy.com, that there is a market for people looking for a peanut/tree nut free facility for soynut butter. She is checking into the smooth kind for me and realizes the allergy is very serious. So, if she finds that the smooth soynut butter is made at the same place as regular peanut butter...then she will put forward an urgent labeleing notice to get it changed. She could not tell me (their private contract deal-eo) if the same supplier made both butters, but she thought not.

So - I will keep everyone updated! Please post if you have info or insights!
