I spoke recently to the manufacturer of Freschetta, Tony's and Red Baron frozen pizzas. Unfortunately, all of the Freschetta pizza are made in a peanut factory in KY. Only the Tony's Super Rise and Red Baron 12", 5", and Breakfast pizzas are safe. The packages of the Freschetta pizza have no warnings. Natural flavors were listed. This company's complete disregard for the well-being of any PA person is disgusting.

We were told by the company that none of the Red Baron frozen pizzas are safe because they could be cross-contaminated.

When I called Tony's Pizza a few months ago they assured me that all of the Tony's pizzas were made in a peanut/nut free plant. My pa daughter eats them all the time. I'll have to call again.

Freschetta pizzas are made by Schwann's.
Schwann's sells frozen food door-to-door if you are not familiar with them. They have a Schwann's labeled pizza that is exactly like the Freschetta pizzas. I asked my salesman one day if the Freschetta pizzas were made by Schwann's. He didn't want to tell me but told me they were.
Schwann's has a website on the Internet.

I would greatly appreciate someone posting the contact info for the pizza products listed above. Many of you mention calling them but have not listed their phone number. I am also in search of safe pizzas and would like to call these companies to double check. Thank you! [img][/img]

When I called Red Barons a couple of months ago I was told the following.
On the boxes there is a small white box with some numbers in it. If the number begins with a 35-it contains peanut oil. If the number begins with a 31- it is peanut free and made in a different plant. The girl I spoke with gave me this info pretty quickly without having to 'research' it.
Like I said this was probably about 6 months ago so you may want to call and see if you get the same info before purchasing this product. I'm sorry I don't have a number for them on hand.

Adding to the confusion...
I called Red Baron today. I was told their products are peanut/tree nut free.
I'm going to go check those numbers kcmom posted.
