Quaker Oats

A recent inquiry by one of our Facebook group members into Quaker Oats, received this response:

"Thanks for letting us know that you're allergic to corn. We appreciate your interest in buying Quaker Old Fashioned Oats directly from us.
I'd like you to know that our oats could have been grown, harvested, stored, and/or transported with corn; therefore, we cannot guarantee that our oats didn't have incidental exposure to this ingredient.
I wish we could be more helpful. Thanks for considering our brand of oats.
Quaker Consumer Relations"

Since most customer responses we get are ambiguous or "there's no corn in it" when there is, we're super-stoked about the honesty of this response, and would totally buy them if we could.

Quaker Oats have had many reports of allergic reactions among our corn groups and so we do not deem them safe for corn allergies.
