I tried to ask that question several times. The impression I was left with from the rep I spoke to was that there is no way of finding out due to multiple manufacturing plants and that they might....I am hoping someone else can inquire as this would be a big loss if that is the case. Need suggestions for alternate yogurts if so- trying to feed teen age endurance athlete extra calories and protein

Just seeing this.

Do you know if they process their regular yogurt on the same lines as the mousse products?

I hate when companies do this sort of cr@p.

I decided to place an order for their new grain and seed bars to see if the kids liked them.  I ordered their grab and go Seed and Fruit Mix as well.  So shipment arrives quickly...the Beach Bash grab & go's packaging had issues.  The vertical back seem did not seal properly so all the packages are open.  I left a message yesterday and heard nothing back.  I have left a second message today.  We shall see if anyone calls me back today.  What horrible customer service!

So beware if you are buying any enjoy life products, check the back seems to make sure they are sealed.  I've had this problem with their chocolate chips as well when I buy them at the grocery store...I actually now inspect the seem before I put them in my cart.

Sorry I didn't see this post was about a reaction.  I will move my complaint about their packaging.

Sorry ... I meant egg.  Good luck ... very tasty!  Mona Lisa's in the French Qtr is also a fun place ... check them out as well.  We also ate safely at Cochon Butcher, which is right around the corner from the Children's Museum (don't know how old your son is?).  And finally, if he is OK with baked egg ... Cafe Du Mond for Beignets.  We are PN/Sesame but also avoid all nuts and shellfish (but are not terribly worried about Xcontam with them).  We are VERY careful ... just wanted to add that, so I would not have chosen these restaurants if I did not think they "got it" WRT food allergies.

Thank you! I emailed Dat Dog to check about the egg allergy — fingers crossed!

Kittle, I’m so sorry that happened.  How is he?

I stopped using them years ago due to X-contamination concerns.  I switched to Pepperidge Farm English Muffins, but I don’t think they make them anymore. 

Unfortunately “may contain” and “shared equipment” warnings are voluntary, which totally sucks for our community.   :disappointed:

I know this is an old thread but my son just had an allergic reaction to Thomas’ English muffins. The packaging has NO statement in regards to peanuts.

So to all the moms wondering, do not give your peanut allergic kids the Thomas’ brand products :( I hope this saves someone else the heartache.

Mfrs. & Packaged Food / yoplait yogurt

Saw in store Yoplait has started Yoplait whips based on girl scout cookie flavors. On website saw has added chocolate peanut butter flavor. Per their website :Does Yoplait WHIPS! Peanut Butter Chocolate Yogurt Mousse contain peanuts and is there a cross-contact risk with other Yoplait products?


A. Yoplait WHIPS! Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse does not contain peanut proteins, and, therefore, does not pose cross-contact risks for other flavors. However, because an ingredient within the natural flavor is derived from peanuts, FDA regulations require an allergen statement on the label. With that in mind, and in addition to routine cleaning and sanitation practices, we are confident that there isn’t a cross-contact risk between Yoplait WHIPS! Chocolate Yogurt Mousse and other Yoplait products.

From discussion with rep. My understanding is that they do not label for shared lines due to processes above, and that have no way of knowing if is on shared lines due to multiple production locations, but always check label, will label if they feel is a risk...but would defer to their allergen statement above
