In the event that other parents have already done something similar, I thought I would pose the question about nut-free BBQ items. Our school is having their traditional welcome back BBQ. I was wondering if anyone out there can help re. identify confirmed nut-free hot dog and/or hamburger buns, hot dogs, and condiments (e.g. ketchup, mustard and relish). Thanks for your help.

Wonder and Dempster are both not & peanut free. I have found heinz ketchup/mustard/relish to be safe as well. But be sure to double check labels.

We are avoiding peanuts, tree nuts, sesame and eggs.

We use Schneiders brand of steakettes and weiners. There labelling is quite good but I still call them to confirm.

I think it's great that your school is looking for nut-free products for their bbq. However, as a parent of an allergic child, I would be a little wary of using a bbq that may have been used to cook non-nutfree food items. Our school had a year-end bbq but my children did not eat any food from the grill due to this inherent risk.

Sorry, bread products vary so much in different parts of the country I can't help you with that, but for other foods . . . .. Chapman's has little ice cream cups with those wooden "spoons" which can be a hit at a school event. So can ready-made Rice Krispie Squares - when purchased at Costco they can be reasonable.

Don't forget to explain to them that the food might be nut-free but the grills might not be! Only cook the nut-free foods on clean grills (our school only offers safe hot dogs which we boil in the school kitchen).

Other sale options are Lays chips!

Susan, I may be mistaken, but hasn't maple leaf added a warning on their label for top dogs about dairy? I'm not sure, but I thought I read that last time I checked them.. either that or they have beef.. sigh..

You may be right. I ordered them last year for the hot dig lunches but found another parent volunteer to take over. Dd doesn't like hot dogs so we don't eat them.

I will check this out prior to our first hot dog day this year.
