Calcium chews/supplements have "may contain" tree nut warning
« Reply #17 on: April 26, 2013, 08:51:20 AM »
Here's another one I never would have thought of: calcium chews. In fact, I was taking these for months after my diagnosis last year, and kept thinking they were making me feel sick/dizzy/lightheaded, but I thought I was just getting paranoid. Should have known to trust myself! At some point, I glanced at the label of the Viactiv calcium chews I was taking, and to my shock there was a "may contains" statement for tree nuts.

FYI, I had to search long and hard to find calcium chews that didn't have a warning. I ended up with Walgreens brand that does have coconut, but no other warning. I still need to call to verify it's safe, but it's definitely not causing the reactions I was getting with Viactiv. This was a wakeup call to remember to check labels even when it's not "food" per se. If it's going in my mouth or on my body, I read the label.

This was a real shocker for me- filling ds allergy meds for school and was asked to go inside as they had filled the liquid antihistamine with a generic instead of the brand name I requested. As I watched the pharmacy tech open the bottle of the brand name (in order to put label on for school) and handle the cup that ds would be using, I notice she is eating something. As I glance behind the counter as she is putting the label on the bottle, she dips her hand back into the metal can of apparent "nuts" she is eating. I immediately notify the other tech and ask if she is eating nuts which they confirm and they offer to refill the prescription which I do). I also notify the lead pharmacist and manager and discuss again that we are filling meds for use for allergic reaction to the very substance she is eating and how this should not happen. Major drugstore chain. Manager very apologetic and spoke with tech. Never would have seen that one coming.

Peanut butter is apparently a good way to diagnose early onset of Alzheimer's.    :-/

And Macademia nut oil in Cetaphil moisturizer, but not, I believe, in their soap.

I saw a magazine ad yesterday for walnut shell cat litter.

Just lovely.  So cat goes in box to poop, covers the poop, and then wanders all over home and furnishings to track the walnut.

(Not like we're ever gonna own a cat, but still.)

I'm sure it has been mentioned earlier in this thread, but wanted to be sure.

I am seeing a lot of juices in the refrigerated beverage section with factory codes identical to those found on the almond milk cartons.  Especially the "gable top" juices.  The gable top Horchata might be an issue as well.

Campbell's Select Tortilla Soup (canned) has peanut oil in it.

There is no bold/warning.  The peanut oil is in the body of the ingredient list.

Wilson Creek makes an almond sparkling wine.  Looks just like champagne to me.

Princella label sweet potatotes -- here is website for their family of brands (Distributed by Allens, Inc):

http://www.sagercreekveggies.com/

CAN labels in stores clearly state "May Contain Traces of Peanuts" below the ingredient list.  However, their website does not seem to reflect this important note!
