I'm "snack mom" at my son's school this week. A couple of children at the school (but not in his class) have potentially fatal nut allergies so the school is nut free. One child was in ICU last year because someone came to school with reminants of peanut butter on their hands and the allergic child was in contact with it on the slide (didn't even eat it) and had to be rushed to the ER.
The goldfish crackers are easy (which I need right now in the height of an intense school load). My concern is that nowhere on the packaging does it say the usual "not made in factory with nuts" or "100% nut free" and the ingredients list sunflower oil as an ingredient. That is the only "nut like" ingredient I saw.
I thought I'd ask you brilliant mamas for any kind of info and help.

I just googled and found this list.

Goldfish are not even on my radar since they have dairy, and we are dairy + nut free. But it looks like they are safe if nuts are the only issue.
