Here's what I received from Yummi Bear vitamins:
Dear Nicole,
In response to your questions, none of our products contain any part of peanuts, or any nut for that matter. They are manufactured in a separate area as not to be contaminated. We have many concerned parents on this subject, so you can rest assure, their children with these allergies have not been harmed. Thank you for becoming loyal Yummi Bears customers.
Yours in Health,
Hero Nutritional Products
You can email them at [email][/email]

Thanks, Nicole,
I was so excited when someone told me of vitamins that were like gummi bears thinking I'd finally get a vitamin in my son. Then I saw them at Walmart last week and passed on buying them because I saw the warning on the label. I think I may go ahead and give them a try. I appreciate you posting what you found out along with the contact info!

I called about the Animal Parade line of children's vitamins and supplements. They returned my call with a message, saying "no peanuts or peanut oils in the vitamins." They didn't specifically address my questions about tree nuts or cross-contamination, but I haven't had a chance to call back.
Several months ago, I also called Bayer Corp. about Scooby Doo vitamins, and was told they could NOT guarantee their safety. Centrum - Rugrats - however, said that their vitamins were peanut/nut SAFE, but we should check back periodically to see if anything has changed.

Abbott Laboratories - Ross Products Division manufactures "Vi-Daylin" lemon-orange flavored liquid multi-vitamins, product #3606-03 (16 oz) or #3606-02 (8 oz) and cherry chewable multi-vitamins w/iron, product #4519-3 or orange chewables #4520-13. All are PA safe and are made for children and adults. "Bethany and Melinda" in Ross' Consumer Relations 1-800-227-5767 conducted extensive research/inquiries for me and none of these products contain peanut or are manufactured in a plant w/ peanut. They cannot be ordered on-line, but may be found (usually special ordered, that's why I gave you the product numbers) in local pharmacies (i.e., not available in supermarket pharmacies or stores like Wal-Mart). BTW, the liquid is also available w/ iron (lemon-lime flavor) as #6992-03 (16 oz) and #6992-02 (8 oz). None of these vitamins contain aluminum (and for those of us who are vegetarians, the liquid contains 75% vitamin B-12 and does not contain any animal products). Also, Ross' "Pediasure" for children is PA safe and comes in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and banana cream flavors.
Stay Safe,

I'm so excited I just found a vitamin my son can have. It's Gummi Bear by Childrens Choice. It's distributed by Plante International in Canada. I called and felt confident with the person I talked with. She assured me there was no peanuts and told me she would call the plant they were made at(the plant was in Germany) to make sure no nut products were processed there.This was her idea she seemed to be very knowledgable with food allergies. She called me back early the next day to \say everything was safe. Does anyone else take these vitamins?

yummi bears by hero will contain a new listing with peanut warning on the label due to the 2006 new requirements but I was told " legal says we have to do it on the off chance a peanut will roll into the factory but we make nothing with peanuts"
