I had e-mailed Kellogg's Canada yesterday regarding their Cinnamon Frosted Flakes. I consider them really well labeled (i.e., "may contain soy") but when I checked a box of regular Frosted Flakes I saw that both were made in London, Ontario. What I had asked Kellogg's in the e-mail was whether there were two different buildings operating in London and they didn't answer that. But they did, however, give me what I consider a fairly comprehensive e-mail about their practices with regard to labeling and food allergies in general. Here it is:-

SUBJECT: Kellogg Canada Inc.
Thank you for contacting us on-line regarding serious food allergens.
Please be assured that Kellogg's Cinnamon Frosted Flakes are completely
peanut and tree nut free. There is no chance of cross contamination with

I called Kelloggs today and the customer service rep told me that the cinnamon ones are made in a totally different facility than the regular ones, and there is no chance of cross contamination because that facility does not make any product with tree nuts or peanuts. The rep was totally alergy aware, and even knew that tree nuts and peanuts were different!

Hi Rita,
Dominion/A&P in Toronto has the Kelloggs cinnamon Frosted Flakes on sale this week so I bought a box yesterday and ate some last night. I used to eat the regular Frosted Flakes as a kid (there was no warning on the Frosted Flakes back then, as I don't think they made honey-nut Corn Flakes (with peanuts) back then so there probably was no risk of cross contamination).

Erik,
They were on sale at Longo's last week too - but I didn't even look at them, figuring they were the same as the regular Frosted ones.
Then, last night we received a bunch of free samples from Kellogg's with our local paper - they had some new flavoured Kellogg's cereal bars, some new Rice Krispie Squares flavours and a small box of the Cinnamon Frosted Flakes. I started reading the ingredients and was amazed, so I had to call them today. Low and behold, he could eat all of the things they sent - how cool is that!
I am sooooo happy that manufacturers are hearing the messages loud and clear.
Anyway - here's to safe and happy eating [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
And here's to one day, never living in fear!
Rita
