My son has a sever allergy to all nuts and I'm a pre school teacher. 2 weeks ago I bought a bag of bird seed to make those pine cone bird feeders at school and Oh my gosh the bird seed had peanuts in it. I just wanted to get the awareness out there that some bird seeds have nuts in them ! I felt so foolish for not even thinking that they would! Thank goodness no children in my preschool have allergies!

Wow I am shocked, you sure do have to read everything! I love gardening and so do both my children. I would never have thought to check the ingredients on a flower package! Thanks for the info.

I also found peanuts listed as an ingredient on a pack of wildflower seeds! The package said that they used peanut shell as filler!! You just have to read everything! I was just thankful that they even listed it on a seed packet!

I know! Nuts and Peanuts everywhere! Having peanut and tree nut free schools is important because it only takes residue from 1/50th of one peanut to be ingested to cause anaphylactic shock! As a teacher and parent of a child with life threatening allergy to peanuts visit www.schoolsafefood.com and www.schoolsafeprocedure.com.

Hope I've been able to help!

Also- bath and body work lotions, some water filters contain walnut shells, and even Walmart brand shredded cheese says "may contain almonds"

my son actually had an allergic reaction when they made pine cone bird feeders with peanut butter. i guess they didnt think having it on his hands would make him react
