For the purposes of this list, we did not separate out peanuts and tree nuts because one is often contaminated with the other. Each allergic individual must decide for him or herself whether the items listed pose a risk WRT their individual allergy.

I hope you'll continue reading and contributing to our forum - welcome!

Someone just posed in my local food allergy group that some e-cigarette vapour 'juices' contain or may contain peanuts.
ANA peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, potato, sorghum

So sad  :-[

Sandblasting with walnut shells is actually listed on our master list (first post in this thread), but I had forgotten it was on there.  I need to periodically read that post as a refresher/reminder.

Land o' Lakes brand half and half and whipping cream.

Same for HORIZON brand organic.

Would guess due to almond milk poss xcontam?


Some discussion here:

Horizon Organic Half and Half
Is this where I blame iPhone and cuss like an old fighter pilot's wife?

Bah!!!  OMG, I accept Xcontam in multi ingredient processed food, but this is really pissing me off.   :rant:

I am 100% not surprised since almost all nondairy mills are made on shared lines with milk, the reverse must also be true.   :rant:

Holding my breath for other dairy products to be Xcontam --butter, regular milk, ice creams that are supposedly pnut/nut free.

Just feeling screwed at this point.

Alliedhealth

Reminder when shopping especially online and curb pick up during this pandemic to carefully check labels multiple times. When calling delmonte to check on canned fruit safety for PA they mentioned that their canned spinach has a peanut warning, which I had happened to have ordered to keep as a vegetable in stock and use in recipes. I had missed seeing it on the label, and have been dealing with this 15 years for ds and not made a mistake like this. Kudos to del monte for mentioning it to me

GoingNuts

Thanks for the heads up on that Allied - another place one wouldn't think to look.

Ear wax removers are listed in the initial list. I will name Cerumol specifically. I almost bought it because I hadn't read the label. The only reason I noticed is because the pharmacist asked me to sit down and do a meds review for the prescription medications  I was picking up at the same time. She was double checking my allergies and I was prompted to read the box of Cerumol in my hand. Peanut oil.

I just used olive oil.

Sometimes I don't think about reading the labels on OTC stuff like that - thanks for the heads-up.  I'm glad you read it before buying it would have been awful to find out the hard way!
