No Peanut Foods: A Place to Find Foods and Products that are both Peanut Free and also Processed in a Peanut Free Facility. I have created this site because I have a severe peanut allergy and this has always been a source of a huge amount of anxiety and stress for me. I have been bullied and ridiculed by many about this, it is something that I have been made to feel ashamed of, and I have been told many times by those I trusted that, ‘You have an epipen’, as if it is a magic wand, which it is not! I recently became aware that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Does Not require foods, or products such as bath/body/oral care, that are processed in a facility containing peanuts to be labeled as such. The only law is that if it’s in the ingredients it’s listed. This is complete insanity! I could easily eat something without peanuts in the ingredients, but still have an allergic reaction & go into anaphylactic shock because something else in that facility contained peanuts, and it inadvertently got into what I was eating due to cross contamination or cross contact. I searched online and could not find a list of which companies go the extra step and label for any cross contamination. So I have decided to take matters into my own hands😉. I have been reaching out to every company that I found in my own kitchen and my own bathroom cabinet and asked, ‘is this product made in a facility containing peanuts?’. I have created a list of companies that are safe for those of us with a peanut allergy and lists of what is not safe due to the risk of cross contamination.
You can view these lists on No Peanut Foods Lists.
I hope my research helps those of us with a peanut allergy feel safe eating again😊
