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.

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

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

Same for HORIZON brand organic.

Would guess due to almond milk poss xcontam?

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.

Someone just posed in my local food allergy group that some e-cigarette vapour 'juices' contain or may contain peanuts.

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!

Great list. Please keep in mind though, peanuts are NOT nuts, they are in the legume family. I'm highly allergic to peanuts and sensitive to all legumes. But I have zero allergies to true nuts (almonds, walnuts, etc). I want to add that, as I have not seen anyone clarify it yet. :-)

Simple Truth brand chicken broth.
(This is exclusive to Kroger maybe?  Or Maybe not!)

May contain statement includes ALMONDS.

Packaging is one of those soft-side cartons, much like what shelf-stable almond milks and other items come in.  Wonder if that is source of Xcontam?

Anyway, wanted to post this here today.
