Food allergies in mayo?

I've got that catering gig coming up in a few weeks, and they've requested potato salad.

She said that some people (including her) are allergic to eggs, so she was concerned about the mayo. She asked if I could use Miracle whip.
So...that doesn't have eggs in it?

I was just going to buy it at Sams and slop it in a pan, cause making potato salad for 80 is more work than I want to do for just 400 bucks.
Maybe I'll buy half and make half.

I know this sounds sounds dumb, but.......
Why don't you make two types one with mayo & eggs(large)
and the other without(small)
I'm sure that would take take of everybody :biggrin:

Cheers

I know it's more work, but the price goes up next time

But still, is Miracle Whip egg free?

Captain: I have a customer that has the same problem.I make my regular potato salad with Miracle Whip. They like it so much they buy it by the pound now. Evan if I don't get a full cater from them it's easy pick up buck's! I use red B potatoes.No pealing them. Easy money.

following Jim's lead ... Miracle Whip Light appears to contain some, though little egg .... Miracle Whip Light Ingrediants.

Hmm. Well, been wrong before. Thanks Jim, I did some hunting for that info on Kraft site but didn't find it.

Cappy, maybe check out Vegenaise

Here's the email answer I got..

Hi Jim


Thank you for visiting http://www.kraftfoods.com/.

I'd be glad to provide you with information on our manufacturing processes
pertaining to food allergens.

We understand that allergic consumers are concerned about the potential
carryover of an allergen between products that are manufactured on shared
equipment. Most of our production lines are designed to be convertible to
other products. If a product is made on shared equipment, every reasonable
precaution, including stringent cleaning and sanitation practices, is taken
to prevent cross-contact with the eight major allergens (eggs, fish,
shellfish, milk, peanuts, soy, tree nuts and wheat). When contact with one
of these allergens is unavoidable, then the product is labeled
appropriately.

I hope this information will assist you with your food choices.

For more information about food nutrition, visit www.kraftfoods.com and
click on Healthy Living.

Kim McMiller
Associate Director, Consumer Relations




Let me paraphrase....their answer is

"There are allergies.
We try not to spread allergies.
There are allergies."


Thanks guys.

But Kraft didn't answer your question! No where in the response did I see, "Miracle Whip does or does not contain eggs"! 8-[

Exactly! Idiots just sent a pre-written answer to another question!

Anyway, I'm just going to make one of recipes from the site you gave me that won't have any mayo.
