Thanks for reaching out to the Quaker Oats Company to inquire about Aunt Jemima Pancake Mixes and Syrups, tree nuts, and peanuts. I'm happy to share our allergen policy below:
If any of the top eight allergens (Milk, Egg, Fish, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Shellfish, Soy, Wheat) are an ingredient, the allergen will be listed in the Ingredients list as well as bolded at the end of the Ingredients list. We label according to FDA requirements.
The May Contain statement is a voluntary company labeling practice which would be labeled on the package in the event a product is run on a line that also produces a product that contains a top eight allergen, and after sanitation and allergen cleaning procedures are conducted we cannot be confident that the allergen would not carry over resulting in incidental exposure. A diligent review and assessment of the line is conducted to allow us to make this determination.
We appreciate your family's interest in our products.

I have a child that has allergies to treenuts and peanuts (pecans, walnuts, cashews...) I wanted to know if you use nut products in the manufacturing facility, because of cross contamination possibility, our nut allergy is severe enough that even a small amount of the nut protein can be fatal.
please advise when you get a moment, thanks and have a nice holiday season
