Newmanís Own

Their website says no peanuts/nuts added or in an added ingredient in their bbq sauce.

Anyone know if they label cross contamination?

Anyone eat their products?

Part of the response,

As stated, there are already very stringent guidelines to protect against cross contamination.  When I checked with the manufacturer allergen listing, there are NO peanuts or tree nuts in the facility.  They do not list sesame however because it is not recognized as one of the 8 FDA recognized allergens.

Not sure when they checked with manufacturer...today...last week....last year...

But sesame is not an FDA recognized allergen, so this is off my list.

SL, if you like a sweet/smoky BBQ sauce, I can give you my recipe. I know there's a reason I avoid Newman's Own, but it's been so long I can't even remember why.
TX - USA
DS - peanut, tree nut, milk, eggs, corn, soy, several meds, many environmentals. Finally back on Xolair!
DD - mystery anaphylaxis, shellfish.
DH - banana/avocado, aspirin.  Asthma.
Me - peanut, tree nut, shellfish, banana/avocado/latex,  some meds.

Weíve been invited for dinner. This is the bbq sauce they use, and they asked me to check if it was safe for me.

I always feel like cr@p telling someone no.

We stopped using them years ago, because they didn't label for cross contam, and were less than transparent when I called to ask about ingredients.  Which is a shame, because many of their products are quite good, and I like their charitable activity.

I should add, I responded that this is sold in Canada and sesame is a recognized major allergen here. They replied shortly after that after checking with company that makes it, it is on shared equipment with sesame seed.
