My son had a reaction to Wise brand white cheddar cheez doodles -- no may contain warning on the pkg. I called the company & were told they were made on shared equip. with pb crackers -- who ever would have thought. This was in March of 2003.

My dd had a minor coughing/itchy reaction after eating Stauffer's ABC cookies. And since then, she does not want these anymore. It figures, since we still have a lot of the 5 gallon mega jar from Costco left.
I've read other posts about people being uncomfortable with Stauffers, I would have to agree now!

Driving Me Nutty, I'm fairly sure that here, in Canada, I can't buy Stouffer's products because they are labeled "may contain". Fairly sure, like 99.9%. I've never had them in my home so there must be a PA reason why.
It continues to baffle me how Canadian companies, very often times owned by American companies, label IMHO *better* than American companies do. What is with that?
I remember having a horrendous time with Pillsbury. Pillsbury Canada was very good to speak with. Pillsbury U.S. sent me on a wild goose chase.
It's all very baffling. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img]

Hi all,
My DD had a reaction to Tyson Chicken tenders. Rash, terrible cough, Vomiting. Nothing on the Label Re: Peanuts. I called and was told that they did not contain any Peanut products. She is only allergic to Peanut and Antibiotics.

We've had several reactions to things - can't swear that they were all from peanut though as there are lots of food allergies involved.
DS reacted to Koala Krisp cereal with vomiting. I had called the company and felt comfortable with their manufacturing process - not dedicated lines, but used for one week at a time with each type of cereal and thoroughly cleaned. The pb cereal was run 3 weeks before the Koala Krisp.
DS also reacted (anaphylactic) to chocolate covered pretzels - can't remember the brand at this point (not a *big* brand) and to milk (anaphylactic). He's not allergic to milk; the Dr. and I can only guess that the dairy had been feeding their cows lots of peanut products.
As for myself, I've reacted to cappucino (anaphylactic) at the restaurant where I worked. I called the supplier and was told that sometimes manufacturers "cut" the coffee with nuts/peanuts?!? I now avoid all coffee at restaurants. I also had a serious reaction to graham cracker crust. Usually from manufacturer cross contamination I will just get an itchy throat, so judging by the way this reaction felt there were definitely peanuts or hazelnuts in the crust - not just contamination.
None of the reactions above were to products with any kind of nuts labeled or any warnings on the packages.

This is our list that we avoid like the plague...
Kellogs nutri grain minis and cereal bars
Mini oreos in the round container
Holiday Christmas hershey kisses
Burger king chicken nuggets
suspected apple cinnamon cheerios (wheezing..may have been asthma flare)
The hershey kisses reaction only required benadryl and inhaler, all the rest were anaphylactic and required epi.
FWIW we stay away from all cereal bars and most cereals. These always seemed to be the culprit behind most of DD's reactions.

Canadian specific - Duncan Hines lemon cake mix. Cross-contamination hive only reaction. Called the company, they told me there was no way it could have happened. I posted about it here at the time and many Canadian members told me that they avoid Duncan Hines.
I know it was the cake mix and I know it was not another food allergy.
I only wish I had kept the remainder of the cup cakes to have tested.

Sebastian, I'm surprised to see BK chicken nuggets on your list. I thought those were safe? Do you know what happened to cause the chicken to not be safe when your child had a reaction?
Thanks!
