This company recently launched a new line of peanut-free products, called Axess. However, only certain products and sizes are part of the program. For now, the Axess line of products only includes a 50g Pretzel, a 50g Sunny Mix, a 50g Spring Mix, and 50g dry roasted almonds and cashews.

Unless someone knows for a fact they are not allergic to any nuts (and only peanuts), I assume he/she could eat the almonds, cashews, sunny mix and spring mix (I think these last 2 are dried fruit/nut mixes). Personally, I think if someone is allergic to any nut (besides peanut), they should NOT eat these products, even if they are not allergic to almonds or cashews. However, the pretzels could be ok, as long as they are not contaminated with other nuts (besides peanuts).

I've been writing to this company to inquire about their 20g-package that Air Canada serves on their flights (which I am not 100% convinced is peanut-free... but I wrote about that in another thread in the Travel section, called Air Canada). I'm still waiting for specific info on that. I will ask if the pretzels risk cross-contamination with nuts. I'm assuming they do run the risk, if they are manufactured in the same place as the "peanut-free" almonds and cashews. I'll keep you posted.

I just received a reply from Krispy Kernels... the 50g package of Axess (peanut-free) pretzels may contain nuts (cashews and almonds only). So it's not a good snack for those who are allergic to both nuts and peanuts.
