I purchased Log Cabin Light syrup and used it on my son's waffles. He had the waffles a few days before with no problem. After minutes he told me, with fear on his face, he thought he ate peanuts and this time he swallowed it. (He is only three, but knew the implication of swallowing it. He has never ingested a peanut product fully. On one occasion he accidentally chewed a Reeces piece and spit it out immed. I washed his face and mouth and he did have pin dot hives below his lip. Then he thouh he had to vomit, but didn't. I did NOT give him anything for this "reaction". He was fine within minutes, but later thought he had to vomit again - he didn't. The reason I didn't run to the Benadryl was because he was having surgery the following day and I was told not to give him any meds. Obviously if the reaction worstened I would have been forced to. I called Aurora foods and was assured that NONE of their products contain any peanut derivatives. Has this occured with anyone else? The last ingredient was sodium hexametaphosphate. Everything else seemed familiar. Could that be the problem?

pWe haven't had a problem with the syrup. You mentioned your son was having surgery- could he have been nervous and stressed about it? Hope he is doing better./p

pLidia, /p
pWe have also used the syrup without incident. What brand of waffles and flavor did your son eat? I know you mentioned he ate them before without a reaction but I'm very curious about what kind they were and possibly if there is a cross-contamination problem./p

pMy dughter and I had a one time problem with reg.Log Cabin syrup. She felt like thowing up, but never did. She did not have any hives, but did cough a lot. She had had syrup from that bottle before and after without a problem./p

pThanks for the replies. He is only three, so he didn't know about the surgery until after the incident. The surgery went great and he is fine. He was under general anesthesia with no problem. We were concerned about a relationship of pn allergies and anest. As a precaution they used alcohol instead of Betadyne to prep his skin. Some Beta products use a soy base. /p
pI was thinking about the waffles as well. I always make mine from scratch, but my mom bought them for him. I think they were EGGo brand. I read the label and it was fine. So the mystery continues. I am going to try The reg Log Cabin and see. He has had that before./p
pThanks again./p

pAnyone checked with the manufacturer of "Eggo" waffles? Please post what you find out, and the contact information for the company on the Food Manufacturer's (safe and unsafe) board and let me know so we can put a link from this thread to that thread after you post. Check to see if there is already a thread started about this company or the "Eggo" waffles before starting a new thread. This helps keep the information organized./p

pEggo waffles are made by Kelloggs and there is info posted on the Food Manufacturer's Board./p
pBasically, when I called this spring I was told that Eggo waffles (sold here in Canada, at least) are NOT made on a dedicated peanut-free line while Eggo pancakes are./p
