Better to err on the safe side when dealing with allergic reactions.
Especially with little ones that may not be able or willing to communicate discomfort to Gramma or Grampa.

If you were to risk it, refined oil may be better for consideration. I don't want to encourage such a risk but I also have to note that for a child with tree nut allergies, my daughter has been fine with my soaps that do NOT contain virgin CO and some regular commercial brands that also have that oil (I highly doubt a company is going to use virgin CO for a mass produced line of soap).

Still, I don't like taking such risks at the expense of anyone, especially a child. I know some of the pain of having an allergy flair-up (cured pork products have made me break out in itchy hives after eating them) so I definitely don't want that for your grandbaby.

Arimara, it's not worth the risk. I know chances are pretty low of cross contamination but it's on the label so I'm guessing it's possible. She doesn't have any tree nut allergies so far, just peanut. This is the first time I've seen a cross contamination warning on an oil label like that.

I can certainly see how cross contact could actually occur in the case of a large manufacturing company that produces multiple types of oils. All it takes is a tiny bit of peanut protein to be overlooked on the equipment when they start processing the coconut (or other oil).

I see cross contact all the time in restaurants. People without these types of issues often don't even think of it, and even when they learn about it, often don't make permanent changes of habitual activity. (Such as using a knife to cut meat, then using the same knife to cut bread. - just one example of cross contact.)

But large manufacturing companies not only depend on huge numbers of people to follow through on the training but also lots of moving parts that need to be thoroughly cleaned between uses in order to avoid or eliminate cross-contact.
