Sorry to hear you're feeling ill. If the cashews were dry roasted then they could have been dusted with flour. That might have caused your reaction.

I don't know if they have a problem...I've tried their peanuts....and got sick, but then again, it might very well have been the usual symptoms........I don't know, but I haven't had a peanut in a long time. Feel better.

Ok here's the scoop. I called Planters yesterday bc you all had me freaked out bc I've been feeding this to my newly diagnosed son. Turns out Planters and Nabisco are both Kraft companies, so their labels follow the same guidelines as any Kraft product. Ie, if something contains an allergen it will say so. The example the guy on the phone gave me was "If it says Natural Flavoring and that flavoring comes from a wheat source it will say (wheat) in paranthesis" So, if it doesn't say it it doesn't have it!

But, if you are still in doubt, I guess just don't eat it. I personally can't eat their dry roasted peanuts bc they have some flavor coating that doesn't agree with my stomach (and I dont' have celiac disease) but they have roasted peanuts that are cooked in oil and are lightly salted that I LOVE.

Good luck! Bridget

Yep...that's what I was told when I called about Crystal Light (also made by Kraft). I didn't know that Planters were made by Kraft, though....cause the only peanuts I had weren't made by them...thanks for clarifying that.

I was psyched too! About the nuts, but also bc I found out that Nabisco is a Kraft company and follows their labeling standards as well. Makes it sooo much easier to trust the labels when you know they are clear! YEAH Kraft (Nabisco and Planters)!!!!

The package of Planters cashews does not say that it contains wheat but both my son and I (both with celiac) feel dreadful with headaches and nausea about 1 hour after eating.
