Passover Foods and food allergies

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

After lengthy interviews with Streits and Manischewitz, here is a list of foods that they are claiming are peanut, tree nut and sesame free (all other allergens have not been considered).  READ THE LABEL EVERY TIME.


ALL FOODS BELOW MUST HAVE EXPIRATION DATE OF 2013 OR LATER (NOT 2012, as they prepared a Muesli cereal with almonds in the facility in previous years).

All foods NOT listed here made by Streits for Passover are either made by third parties or in Israel or other countries that we did not feel comfortable using.

We only will considered the items NOT crossed out.  We provide some explanation as to why we cross out or had further explanation. For example, the Matzo production line uses Sesame for the Tam Tams during non-passover, but the last time they ran this product was last May and the machines were thoroughly cleaned but not tested for proteins.  Any of the Matzoh line products could have been produced just after that May sesame run, as the shelf life of many of these products is 2 years, and therefore would be considered “produced on a line that has Sesame”.
