Would you buy these cookies?

I just bought a box of all natural chocolate sandwich creme cookies that look like Oreos. Under the list of ingredients it says this. Allergen information: contains what and soy ingredients. Good manufacturing practices used to segregate ingredients in a facility that also processes milk, egg, peanut and tree nut ingredients. My son is allergic to peanuts and tree nuts. I keep thinking maybe I shouldn't have bought these, but then again probably other brands of food I buy do the same thing in their facility (like wash everything) and just don't label as well as this company. What do you think?

I am impressed with the thoroughness of their labeling.

But I wouldn't buy the cookies. I'm terrified of cookies. We do buy oreos and chips ahoy. Only because I read about lots of others eating them here first.

There are some types of foods that I'll buy if I read the label and trust it and feel good about it. But I'm skiddish about cookies.

I could just be a strange bird about this, but that's me.

I would probably call to find out what their safety measures are for segregating the nut products and whether or not I'd buy them would depend on if I were comfortable w/ their answer. I agree with above poster-cookies scare me. DD had a rx to Chips Ahoy some years back and they were not labeled as unsafe. This was back @6 yrs ago before I ever called manufacturers.

The other thing is that chocolate scares me. If I could determine all things were safe and that it was made from cocoa and not chocolate, perhaps.

But I'm convinced people don't really understand chocolate. In my mind I equate it with containing nuts almost always unless I know for sure otherwise.

Thanks for replying. Like I said, I'm still worried even after I bought them. I hid them so my son doesn't even know I have them. Usually I make my own cookies. He loves Oreos but I am trying to stay away from a lot of artificial ingredients. Thanks again.

Nice label but I would not give them to my son. There are lots of good ones out there and you make your own. LOL get used to it. My PA son is 22 and I have been baking for him FOREVER! Peg

The cookies are from Whole Foods. They are called 365 All Natural Chocolate Sandwich Cremes.

The 365 just means it's their own brand.

I would call Whole Foods and ask if the cookies are made on shared lines with the nut ingredients. If they are, I would not buy them, even with good manufacturing practices -- I don't trust shared lines; it's not worth the risk for us. The FDA report a few years ago indicated that 25% of the baked goods (and candies and ice cream) that they tested that use shared lines and/or facilities actually tested positive for nut protein.

I do not buy 365 anymore. I am not sure, but many store brands are made by mulitple manufacturers. I read a lot of their labels and I just don't get a good feel that they are safe. I have actually found that most organic processed food seems more dangerous than non organic food. Just my opinion. I would pitch them.

i dont think id buy the cookies. a few months ago the bakery we would purchace our cakes and bread from started listing peanuts as a possiable cross contamanation. now we dont shop there. we never had a problem with any of there products, but peanuts are listed so thats that! erin
