DD goes to peanut free school and one of her classmates does in fact have an allergy towards... My question is, do food/candy products always put a warning if made with or made in peanut factory?

I wanna bake cupcakes but I don't wanna kill anyone

I will be using
box cake mix
Oreos
Rollos
Pretzels (most brands said made in factory that contains peanuts but I found one that didn't say that)
Marshmallows
And fruit roll ups

I think they usually do. If a snack is brought in they always call me and give me the list of ingedients and ask if its ok if he has it.

Oh ok, good idea! Do u have a website that u could recommend?

Quoting RottenKindaQute:

Not all company's put a warning. Just do a google search of safe brands. Some cake mixes are not safe.



I used to have a bunch of websites bookmarked, but I had to reset my phone.



Also, check for safe brands of frosting.

You're better off looking for something that specifically says it's nut free. I think the label would say something like "manufactured in a peanut and tree nut free facility" but I don't recall the exact wording.

I don't think so but if stuff is made in a peanut free facility they put that on the box.

You can usually find allergen free stuff in the health food isle. My son has a peanut allergy, so that is where I find some stuff.

I don't think I would be able to find anything that says that for what I wanna make :(

Yes, they have to put a warning. It is conveniently placed after the list of ingredients, often in bold lettering.

DS is allergic to nuts. I've read a lot of labels over the last few years. Those buggers show up everywhere!

Omg this website is great! Thank you so much! Pretzels I got are on safe list! Yaaay!

Snacksafely.com has always been helpful for me.



Is the child allergic to only peanuts, or tree nuts in general?

Well, if I remember right original oreos are nut free. I think most marshmallows are not safe, but you could make your own or possibly find a nut-free brand. Pretty sure roll-ups are nut-free, but I'd have to hunt down my list. It's the boxed cake mix you should be cautious of; try googling it to see if you can find out for sure.
