First Family Cookies Are Nut-Free

I came across an entry on Seattle Weekly's Voracious blog for "First Family" cookies from Little Rae's Bakery in Seattle. You may remember Little Rae's Bakery from an earlier Food Allergy Buzz post--the wholesale bakery converted to nut-free over last summer. Little Rae's sells cookies, scones, and other baked goods to stores and cafes around Seattle, and also sells many of the same items online. One bag of Little Rae's all natural shortbread cookies bearing images of the incoming First Family costs $15.95 including shipping. They're cute--you should take a look! There are photos of the cookies on Little Rae's website as well as the Voracious blog.

OMG!!--We gotta get these for the inaguration.

Not to be paranoid, but do they produce all of their products on site. I want to make sure they're truly nut-free. Maybe I'll e-mail them.

Thanks for the heads-up!!!!

My understanding is that all Little Rae's products are produced in their nut-free facility and packaged there as well. There is a statement on the website saying that there's no cross-contamination as long as the products are in their packages, sealed. They warn that cross-contamination could occur if the baked goods are sitting in a pastry case, unpackaged, with other foods.

But please don't take my word for it. The url for Little Rae's is http://www.littleraesbakery.com/ and the email address is baker@littleraesbakery.com. I know I always like to verify the "nut-free status" of foods myself too!
