I'm baking cookies for my class this week, and thought about using the refrigerated chocolate chip cookie dough instead of making from scratch due to time and messy kitchen issues.  I have a student with severe peanut allergies.  Does the preapackaged dough have peanuts, peanut byproducts or peanut oil in it?  Thanks...

Welcome to our baker's site, Paula S.! I don't have a package of the cookie dough here at home, but it should say somewhere on the back of the package, in small print and usually close to the list of ingredients, whether this was made on equipment that had been exposed to peanuts.

Read ALL the small print all over the package.  They may print a line about nuts in another spot.  Not just with the ingredients. 
Nuts turn up is lots of things unexpectedly. Cry

Bless you heart for asking Paula ...... the package will tell you somewhere. 
Maybe you should make the dough yourself ??  Best wishes.

So many products list "manufactured in a plant which also processes peanuts and tree nuts" or some such.
If the student has a severe allergy I would be reluctant to use the packaged product even though it is convenient and yummy.

I agree with the comments that it would be better to make the cookie dough yourself, rather than take a chance on the premade.  I have a son who is very allergic to nuts.  I check everything and if there is a doubt, I don't use i.

Hi Paula.  I just baked some of the Nestle Chocolate Lovers cookies tonight and yes it says "made on equipment that also handles nuts".  Your really have to look for it since they now have the ingredients in another language too. 

I think most of the premade cookie dough will have that on there since they make multiple types of cookies on the same machinery.  It's scary how many kids now have food allergies. Good luck.

The best way to find out is to contact Nestles and they can tell you.

Hello Paula!

I am very sorry for the wait on getting back to you regarding our Refrigerated Cookie Dough and peanuts. Our Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough is made on equipment that also processes peanuts and nuts. Labeling regulations require that the eight recognized major food allergens always be listed in the ingredient statement if they are in the product, regardless of the amount. We always list these food allergens by their common name. We recommend that you always check the label for the most current information before purchasing one of our products.

Factories that use an ingredient coming from one of these eight allergens take all needed precautions to avoid cross contact with products that do not normally contain these allergens. If a products that does not contain one of the known allergens, but is made on the same line as one that does and/or in the same facility with potential for cross contact, we will add an advisory statement at the end of the ingredient listing.

I hope you find this information helpful Paula!

-Tiffany
