Nabisco Triscuits

(apologies if this is a repeat; i'm cleaning up my desk.)
Emailed Nabisco after a serious reaction in December, thinking /maybe/ it had something to do with one of their triscuits varieties that uses soybean oil.
Darryl Pope called back a few days later. He had spoken with the mfg plant. They are free of major allergens (including nuts, peanuts, eggs, milk) except for soy, which is refined (oil). They track customer complaints in a database and have had none in past 12 months. Reassuring, but still doesn't help us identify what it could have been.


Bolthouse Farms C-Boost fruit juice

Called 1800-467-4683 to inquire about this juice UPC 71464 30251.
spoke with Tonya who said:
some prpoducts contain milk ingredients (whey), also some with soy, others with hazelnuts. would be done on same line, but have a "state of art" cleaning, sanitization and test program between every flavour change to ensure no residue. Never had a positive result but would discard all product and restart sanitization process if they were to find anything.
Sounds reasonable, so I will try not to be paranoid about this one.

Hi-Liner pan sear select salmon

(Originally posted 2010-01-22)
Called (don't have details handy), spoke with Chantale.
It's a new product, not in database yet. For sure no peanuts in plant, but may be packaged in the same facility as another product made with almonds. Will put in a request and call me back (maybe not today).
UPDATE re highliner pan seared select salmon, mediterranean.
Chantale called back with allergen profile.
Only wheat and fish present in product, cannot guarantee against trace amounts of contaminants.
Dairy, shellfish, egg in some products. Peanuts not in plant, almonds could be but not on line.

They use safe practices on lines, if chance of cross-contamination -> strong sanitization technique + swabbing + high-pressure wash.

I think we chose NOT to try this product as we had found another salmon product that was plain and clean.

Tropicana OJ with calcium

called Tropicana at 1800-237-7799 (Judy) re no pulp Tropicana Essentials 100% OJ with Calcium "specially designed as a source of calcium for people who do not drink milk" UPC 48500 01847.
She insisted that top 8 allergens (I thought there were more than 8 but anyway) would have to be printed on the label but she would check anyway. The Calcium is derived from a mineral (not dairy or shell) source. Yay!
