Wow. I can't believe there is no chance of sesame cross contamination too. We have missed bagels so much in the four months since dd's sesame diagnosis and they are the only thing I haven't mastered making myself. Thanks weneedacure!

In regard to Lender's bagels, a few varities say "baked in a nut-free environment". I emailed Pinnacle foods to find out what exactly this meant- out of curiosity. I had been so happy to discover this product... Anyway- here's the first response I got:

Thank you for taking the time to contact Consumer Insights regarding your
recent purchase of Lender's? Bagels. It gives us great pride to have the
opportunity to interact with the individuals who use our products.

On labeling, we disclose all ingredients in compliance with the Food and
Drug Administrations requirements. Furthermore, if any allergens are
determined to be within these ingredients, they will also be noted on
labeling in compliance with The Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer
Protection Act (FALCPA) of 2004 which was passed to ensure that
individuals could easily and accurately identify food ingredients that may
cause allergic reactions. The allergens covered under this act are milk,
eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, and soy.

Beyond those requirements, the details of individual ingredients are part
of our confidential formulation which we are not able to disclose.

Our Matton plant which manufactures our frozen and refrigerated
Lender's?Bagels is a nut free facility. Co-packers are not considered nut
free as they produce products for companies other than just Pinnacle and
we can not guarantee their processes. This does not apply to fresh bagels
which are made by a third party bakery and at this time can not be
confirmed to be nut free.

I hope that you understand why I am unable to assist you at this time.

[b]So I write back to find out what a co-packer is... and ask for that clarification since, to me, the email is confusing. Here is the second reponse:[/b]***************************************************************************************************

Thank you for taking the time to email Consumer Insights. In response to
your e-mail, co-packers are not nut free
as they produce products for other companies. Unfortunately, I cannot
provide you with detailed information on

We are always grateful when loyal consumers such as you take the time to
communicate their experience with us. It gives us great pride to have the
opportunity to interact with the individuals who use our products.

So, I emailed again and they still refuse to disclose why they are mentioning "co-packers" when I just wanted to find out what "baked in a nut-free environment" meant. I fear that their label is misleading since they are being very ambiguous in their responses.

huh? Their response seems like a run around? I am going to call and will post what they tell me! Why put a nut free label on something that is not nut free!

This was a while ago but I want to clarify what I think they are saying since 1) I worked in the food industry as an engineer and 2) I use this product every day. Lenders has bagels with and without the peanut free label. You must check the package. For example, locally I cannot buy the Lenders bagels at Walmart because they do not have the peanut free statement. This is because they are packed by someone other than Pinnacle and Pinnacle is not willing to guarantee their safety since there may have been shared equipment involved. However when I go to other grocery stores in the area I can find Lenders bagels with the nut-free label and be assured that they were produced and packed by Lenders and therefore be as confident as with anything else we eat that they are nut-free.

For those with sesame allergy, I have a mini bagel recipe that is quick. It contains egg though, you can make it without egg (it's originally a pretzil recipe). Just shape into mini bagels. I accidentally threw an egg in a pretzil recipe (was supposed to use as eggwash) and when I baked the pretzils I realized they tasted just like the mini bagels we used to buy. I'll post in the recipe section when I get a chance. DS loves these.
