Although Enjoy Life Foods, a unit of Mondelēz, is a member of our Manufacturer Partnership, their Nabisco unit is not. This means we have detailed processing information regarding the 11 allergens we track for say, Enjoy Life Soft Baked Chocolate Chip Cookies, but we do not have that information for Oreos.
That said, we do periodically reach out to our contact at Mondelēz to confirm the information we used to collect regarding how Oreos are manufactured with regard to peanuts and tree nuts.
This is our understanding from many years of inquiry:
We recently reached out to our contact at Mondelēz – Kimberly Fontes, Senior Manager of Communications for the company – to confirm our understanding is still valid.
A member of her team replied with the following confirmation:
Hi Dave – I hope you’re well. Kim forwarded your inquiry to me and I wanted to get in touch. The statement you have below from December 2021 remains accurate.
So to summarize:
- The plain varieties of Oreos are manufactured on dedicated peanut and tree nut free lines in facilities that may process peanuts and tree nuts; but you should always check the label.
- Do not assume the same for other varieties of Oreos; for those you must check the label and confirm with the manufacturer.
Our thanks once again to Ms Fontes for her help in keeping us informed.
