Have you ever picked up a product, read the label, and been shocked to find it contained [insert your allergen here]? Me too! I wanted to share the “head’s up” and would love if you would too.
Hmmmm. Let’s see.
Fluoride treatments at the dentist office “may contain” peanuts.
I’ve found cake flour that “may contain” peanuts.
I’ve found milk in chicken bouillon cubes and taco seasoning packets.
I’ve found canned vegetables that “may contain” peanuts.
How about in the same product that WAS ok, but isn’t ok in a different package size. Or how about the same product that WAS ok at one store, but isn’t ok from a different store because the “recipe” is different for a different customer base. Yep, seen that.
I’ve seen hamster food that contains peanuts.
I’ve heard of potting soil that contains peanuts.
I found Tastefully Simple brand spices and seasonings may contain milk, egg, and/or nuts. You would think it would just be a spice!
Chili can contain peanuts.
Here’s a great list too: http://foodallergysupport.olicentral.com/index.php/topic,43.0.html
