Okay, now this is an odd way to view peanut cross contact risks, but I stumbled upon the National Peanut Board website seeking additional information regarding peanut shell in fireplace logs. I discovered their link to New Peanut Products. At the top of the list were Honey Maid® Grahamful crackers! The same brand we sometime use. A red flag shot up immediately as I wondered if the variety I purchase is now cross-contaminated with peanut butter in the same factory?
The site offered a comprehensive list of new peanut flavored products made by Earth Family, Cheerios, etc.. It was actually quite interesting and gave me a fast glance at what cross contact issues might be coming my way. Therefore, visiting this site might provide us all with a new way of staying on top of manufacturers and cross contact risks that are not printed on the label. This was a good reminder to me to keep on calling manufacturers, even if my family has been using a product for a very long time.
