I was in No Frills today and noticed that the pakages of mini oreos no longer contain a "may contain" warning. If this is permanent, this will be another safe treat to add on to our list.

I also noticed the same thing at Dominion A&P, and was surprised to see that the peanut residue warning had been removed from the mini Oreos.

Just checked this out at the grocery store and neither the mini oreos or mini chips ahoy have a warning. Has anyone called on this?

I called about the mini chips ahoy (US). Another mom of a PA child had told me they had no warning anymore, and after checking the ingredients myself, I called to double check, twice actually. Once I called Nabisco directly, and today I called Kraft (who I guess owns Nabisco.) I was told the same thing both times, that if there was a possibility of any cross contamination, that the allergen would be listed as an ingredient. The Kraft rep was adamant that they are very strict about their labeling. I know I use a lot of Nabisco products and have never had a problem.)
As far as I know, the mini oreos in the US have always been safe. I know I bought them last Halloween in the Halloween packaging to hand out.
Btw, every time I call Nabisco, I make sure to thank them for having safe cookies and crackers available for kids with food allergies, and they always sound *very* gratified. Just want them to know that their efforts are appreciated [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

OK, I'm confused. I did check these in the store, and they looked ok. I went to Krafts website and you can search products and look at the ingredients. Some of the minis list pecan meal and some dont. I did email them because I would like to know the reason there is no longer a warning? did they change lines, plants, etc.

I actually called Christie/Kraft last year when I noticed that the warning had been removed from the mini chocolate chip cookies. The rep also stated that if there was any risk of cross contamination, it would be labelled as such. She would not give me any info on whether they had changed lines or if this new labelling would be permanent.

The warning is gone from regular Chips Ahoy too. I got that "if there is a risk we would label" junk too - is there any way if they have added another safe plant in Canada or moved more products to the Toronto area plant?
I still didn't add them to my safe list since I don't know what the change was....
thanks

Plus we have the cookies made by Dare in the nut-free/peanut-free facility, so we don't need to buy Mr. Christie cookies. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Momma2boys, I just now looked at the Kraft site. It does say, " Keep in mind that ingredients and formulations change, so nutrition information, including trans information, may also change. For the most accurate information regarding a particular product, please refer to the nutrition and ingredient information on the product package or Contact Us.". I think in this case, since it appears to be a fairly recent change that they have eliminated pecan meal, that it is likely a case that the website hasn't been updated yet. Lol, I just called Kraft yesterday, but I will make another call today to ask about this!
Again, I'm talking about the US - it seems half of us are talking about US and half about Canada [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

The mini oreos I have seen have always been safe. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/confused.gif[/img] Maybe it's been a regional thing?
