I was interested in the Spitz sunflower seeds since I've only seen the do-not-use peanut warning on the bags in our stores. If you look on the Spitz website ([url]http://www.spitz.ca[/url]) you will see that they now make flavored in-shell peanut products called Nutz.
When I called them about this (403-545-6877), they said that the Nutz products are made in a facility three hours away. The only time they make contact with their sunflower seed products is in transport, but only then it is contact as wrapped product.
They were pretty sure but not positive that their pumpkin products didn't have cross contaimination with peanuts...they were looking into it.
Unfortunately, their products have wheat flour and soy protein as cross contaiminants so we cannot use either the sunflower or pumpkin seeds. But, I thought that this info might be useful to others so I posted it. Warmly, Julie.

I had sunflower seeds for the first time in years, my PA son wasn't interested in them, but the seeds were from a co. in N Dakota and the bag had a soy warning on it. I was nervous, but tried them. No reaction and he was in the car, and has had a inhalation reaction to peanuts before.
I noticed a few ND brands and will pick more up when I pass back through South Dakota.
