I bought the "original" flavor of Wheat Thins because the label indicated that they were safe from peanuts, milk and soy. Then I came home and called them to double check, and they said if any of the top 8 allergens are in their products, it's labeled as such. We have had no problems with them except they are so good I can't stay out of the box :)

EthelV Really? I have never seen a Nabisco pkg that had a statement like that. A lot of people don't trust any Nabisco because they do not label for shared lines. Yes the statement that "if any of the top 8 allergens are in their products, it's labeled as such" is true-it's the law so it's true of every brand made in the US.
We do use some Kraft/Nabisco products and have never had a problem with Wheat Thins. I've never seen any label saying they were free from any certain allergens though.

There are no labels on my package either but I did call them today and they assure me it's safe. But we have to read though the whole ingredient list every single time as there are not specific contain or may contain statements.
We tried it today, they are good - very salty. (We have the tomato/basil favor)

Well if they assured you it's safe, then I would think it was made on dedicated lines at the very least. Every time I call, though, they always 100% of the time tell me they don't use any dedicated lines.
Like I said, I do use SOME Kraft/Nabisco but it makes me nervous.

We have used wheat thins with no problems (except that I, too, cannot stay out of the box!), but I'm nervous about their labeling. Trader Joe's has a good Wheat Thin - like cracker and they are known for good labeling practices. So you might try that instead.
