Pretzel!Please note that we have removed a number of products from the Safe Snack Guide:

  • Ritz Crackers – all varieties.

We received a report that two sleeves of the Peanut Butter variety of Ritz Crackerfuls were packaged in a box of the Classic Cheddar variety. Though the individual sleeves were clearly labeled as containing the Peanut Butter variety, this could have  led to unthinkable consequences had the error not been discovered by an observant parent before the treat was given to a child.

Please note that we have removed a number of products from the Safe Snack Guide:

  • Oreos: All varieties other than Original and Double Stuf;

We received information and a photo from a concerned individual showing package labeling for the Minis variety carrying a “may contain peanut” warning. Given the information we received recently from Mondelēz and in keeping with our policy to err on the side of safety, we are removing all Oreo varieties other than the traditional Original and Double Stuf varieties.

We have also removed the following Oreo branded varieties as a precaution:

  • Kraft Handi-Snacks Oreo Cookie Sticks ’n Creme Dip
  • Nabisco 100 Calorie Packs – Oreo Thin Crisps 

We strongly urge you to discard your current copy of the Guide and download the latest revision:

reeses-oreoOn June 9, a limited edition Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup Oreo is scheduled to hit the shelves of a store near you. Many of you contacted us with concerns about how (and where) these cookies are made, especially as they relate to the varieties of Oreos that are listed in the Safe Snack Guide.

As Mondelēz is not (yet) a member of our Manufacturer Partnership Program, we went through their traditional consumer channel and were greeted with the standard “Check the label – we label for possible peanut/tree nut cross contamination.” Once we explained that SnackSafely.com represents tens of thousands of consumers with food allergies, our request for more information was escalated through internal channels.

As we no longer have an agreement in place with Wink, we have removed their products from the Guide.
