Chinkie, you should check out the different threads under Schools. But also, I have to ask, do you live in America or Canada or someplace different? Things are very different re PA in both countries so it depends on what country you're living in what information you really want to get. Please let us know. Best wishes!

Chinkie, since you're online you have quite a few good places that you can find information that you can print off and your daughter could possibly take it into your granddaughter's school so they realize the seriousness of the allergy. First of all, since you do live in America, does your granddaughter have a 504 Plan? I'm not really clear what that is because I'm Canadian, but if you go to the Schools discussion section there should be something about the 504 Plan in there. This may be your first step. There is one website and although it is Canadian, it provides links to a lot of different sites that can provide you with information. It's [url="http://www.cadvision.com/allergy"]www.cadvision.com/allergy[/url] If you go there, you'll find a lot of different links where you can find school policies, information about PA, a link to this site even. I'd suggest first that you find out what a 504 Plan is exactly if your granddaughter doesn't already have one and then look up all the information you can. Then, you'll have to figure out what the school needs to be provided with. I'm fortunate where I live, in Canada, there was a school board policy in place that required my son's school to implement a "peanut free" classroom. Keep posting here though so hopefully other people can get in and help you sort this out too! Best wishes!

I like the [url="http://www.cadvision.com/allergy/peanutfree.html"]www.cadvision.com/allergy/peanutfree.html[/url]
site too. If you print it out it says how
severe the problem can be. Also you can print out stuff from [url="http://www.oma.org/phealth/peanuts.htm"]www.oma.org/phealth/peanuts.htm[/url] This site
lists symptoms,a failure to prevent contact
with peanuts section, failure of institutions
section. These info sections should make things pretty clear. You can also get a note
from the doctor. Check out foodallergy.org
and look at the brochures they have. They
are really good. They have a teacher/parent
one which states what the school is responsible for in regard to your daughter's
safety.

Hello, I'm actually not sure because we do not only deal with peanuts. ...but was wondering if you also have a milk allergy because of your name, cuz I know they definitely have milk products in the goldfish crackers.

For a short time, Goldfish contained the "may contain" or the "made in the same plant" warning. I haven't seen that warning lately - at least on the ones that I buy. I didn't buy them when they contained the warning, but do now again, and my son is okay with them.

What flavor were the goldfish? My 19mth old twin pa girls eat them everyday (original, cheddar, pizza, parmesan). From this site I've learned that Pepperage Farm is a safe company that labels "may contain" when necessary.
I have also discovered that there is a goldfish snack/party mix that has nuts in it.
I would call the company with the info on the offending bag and see what they say.

Don't the pizza flavored goldfish have peanut oil in them? That's what I thought.

latymom, I know companies can change ingredients at any time, but upon reading your comment I went to my cupboard! My package of Pizza Flavored Goldfish does NOT contain any peanut ingredients. The oils listed are "canola and/or soybean and/or cottonseed."
