pHas anyone had any experience with Yummi Bears vitamins? My son (who is a terrible eater) will not take the regular kids vitamins, and I purchase these gummy bear type thinking he might take these. I called the manufacturer to inquire about peanut or tree nut ingredients and this is the reply I received:/p
pThe Yummi Bear vitamins are manufactured in a separate part of the plant on their own dedicated line. However, other parts of the plant do use peanut products in some of the supplements. /p
pThe rep said that she believed these vitamins would be perfectly safe for the pa and ta individuals./p
pI am wondering how all of you feel about this. Would you give them to your pa child?br /
I am desperate to find a vitamin my son will take, as I know he is not getting an adequate supply of vitamins and minerals in his meager diet. Thanks./p

Personally, I would feel comfortable with a dedicated line in a separate part of the building. It's pretty hard to find an entire plant with no peanuts, so this is almost as good as it gets. If you're concerned, you might call the company periodically, maybe each time you buy more of the vitamins, to make sure their manufacturing process is still the same.

My son w/PA won't eat any other vitamin either. We use L'il Critters Gummy Vites and never have had any problem.

We've been using these for about 3 years now without a problem. I did call and was satisified with cleaning procedures.
You can buy them at Walmart.

Just raising this to let you know the bottle I bought today says "Manufactured in a facility that processes peanuts" I have not noticed this before and believe me, it's in the fine print or I wouldn't have gotten them all the way home. What to do now? These are the only vit's my little girl will take.
I also didn't see any contact numbers on the label. Are these out now too? Did any of you ever talk to the manufacturer? UGH.

BeckyA - which vitamins do you mean? The Little Critters ones? I bought the Yummi Bears and plan on givin them to my 4 year old PA/TNA. I don't see a warning on them. I called the manufacturere and the lady told me no peanut/tree nut products hidden anywhere.

I bought the Lil Critters one too and didn't notice the warning until getting home and actually opening the bottle. No contact info which was so frustrating. Decided to try them anyway and we did fine.
