Tips for avoiding peanut products

[Note: Just because a product was safe the last time you purchased it, doesn't mean the ingredients have stayed the same! It is very important to read all labels all of the time. It is important to read product labels for all ingredients and to avoid obvious sources of peanut protein, such as peanut butter and peanut flour. Foods that contain peanuts or peanut products may be labeled using words like peanut extracts, ground nuts, mixed nuts, or natural flavoring. Common products that can contain peanuts include marsipan, chili, egg rolls, candy, baked goods, and Nu-nuts®]
