Lorna Doone Allergen Information

One recurring Google search which brings visitors here is "Lorna Doone allergy information". Coincidentally, Lorna Doones are my peanut allergic son's favorite cookie these days. It can be difficult to get good information from manufacturers about allergens, especially over the telephone. Here is the September 2008 email response from Nabisco Customer Support when I asked "Which of the top 8 food allergens are used in the facility which manufactures Lorna Doone Cookies?"

Thank you for taking the time to contact us about your concerns.For every ingredient that Kraft purchases, we require our suppliers to fill out an extensive questionnaire, which includes a complete list of allergens both directly added and indirectly added through cross contact within the supplier's manufacturing facility. We then develop the ingredient statements and allergy information statements that are declared on our labels based on our formulas, the allergen information we receive from our ingredient suppliers, and any unavoidable cross contact allergens that come from our own manufacturing facilities.

We have thoroughly researched all possible sources of allergens and have appropriately declared them on our labels.In addition, I'm glad to share with you that we have information about many of our brands on our web site at www.kraftfoods.com. You can access this information by clicking on the "About Kraft" link on the top toolbar and then the "Our Brands" link.

If you haven’t done so already, please add our site to your favorites and visit us again soon!

Again, thanks for contacting us, and I hope you'll continue to enjoy our products.
