We give our PA daughter Oreos all the time. There is no warning on the label, however there is one on the Mini-Oreos, so we stay away from those. I'm from Canada though, and I don't know where you're from. Maybe the labels are different in the U.S.? Sorry I can't recommend a substitute, but we've never had a problem with Oreos. I might have a recipe for homemade cream-filled chocolate cookies - if you're a baker just let me know and I'll post it!

Our pa daughter also eats oreos. I was never aware of a problem with them, and she has never had a problem, either.

Our PA son eats Oreos. I am leery of candy bars and for some reason just can't trust them, even the "safe" ones. Oreos are our substitute for candy bars. My son loves them and they are always the replacement treat for everything else he can't have. Thanks for the heads-up about the mini Oreos. I think we might have some and I will check them.

My 2 year old also eats Oreos on occasion. We live in the US. Most of the time, I just buy the store-brand generic sandwich cookies and just run it by the manufacturer.

Thanks for your responses...if Oreos are working for this many people, they must be OK. I will give them a try (after I read the package, of course).

There is a great substitute for Oreos from wholefoods.com. It is their 365 brand of sandwich cremes. Comes in chocolate, chocolate/vanilla and vanilla. They are all natural, no artificail flavor or color. We follow the feingold diet so are always looking for goodies to have. Our neighborhood babysitter thought they were better than Oreos and had us get him some boxes the last time. They do have brick and mortar stores Whole Foods markets. Check their website for locations.
My son is PA and Tree nut allergic and dairy sensitive.

Thanks--I've been wondering if the 365 cookies are OK. We have a Whole Foods about 10 minutes from here,and yes, I consider myself lucky. Even if they do have a peanut butter machine right out in the aisle, grinding away.

Has anyone read the label on the 365 cookies. Sounds like they clean the lines but but expressed there is a possibility of cross contamination. How comfortable does anyone feel with shared lines? When should we worry? I know a lot of you have larger comfort zones than I do so I just want to know. At what point do you feel a product is safe and not safe? Shared lines/ dedicated lines/ or just as long as there washed? Let me know I'd love to hear how you make your decisions on products safety.
