I tried to research on the boards but wasn't having any luck. Does anyone think Kellogs poptarts are safe? They have allergy warnings and do not mention peanuts/nuts. I've been eyeing these poptarats in the pantry but am afraid to take a bite. Thanks.

My PA daughter eats the strawberry, cherry, and, I think they're called "Wildberry Blue" Poptarts with no problem.

My pa son eats the chocolate fudge, chocolate chip, and frosted brown sugar and cinnamon all the time. Never had a problem. I think that since they warn for other allergens it makes me feel comfortable that they are safe.

My son (w/PA) has been eating PopTarts for over 3 years with no problems. I believe that some folks on this board do not feel comfortable w/Kelloggs...but PopTarts fit w/our comfort zone.

My ds eats them too, just the fruit ones, it's nice for him because he is also dairy allergic and at least the fruit ones don't have dairy in them.
One ds allergic to peanuts and dairy
one ds with no allergies

I was told by a rep that they are not safe for someone with PA. But then again, I get different answers every time I call.
I am really upset with them right now!!
We have had problems with the cereal bars and the nutri grain minis so we will not be taking any chances with the pop tarts.

Hmmm... we've never had a problem with Pop Tarts or even with the grocery store brands of them (Food Lion). I've also never seen any with with PB or PN ingredients.
All three of my kids (2 PA) eat them with no problems...

Personally, we do not eat any Kellogg's products so I do not know of their safety. I would just like to say that even though they have "allergy warnings" on them it does not neccesarily mean that they are safe. Take a look at all the other Kellogg's products (cereal, waffles etc...) and you will not find a single peanut warning on ANY of their products. My son has had 2 severe reactions to Kellogg's products- cereal and waffles, neither of which were labeled correctly.

I checked the Kelloggs website and here is their response on labeling/food allergies:
