All this is why I refuse allergy-friendly orders!
post #47 of 51

I must stress that food allergies are a real and present danger in our communities these days. I have seen children go into anaphylactic shock when touching play equipment that has been touched by another child who has eaten a nut product, or been breathed upon by a nut-eating friend, or has eaten at the same table where a satay or other nut-containing foods have been served.

 

Food allergies are a matter of life and death for some people.

 

As providers of food, it is also a matter of business survival for those of us offering allergy-free baked goods.

 

Any flippant, dismissive or outright irresponsible posts regarding food allergies will not be tolerated and will be deleted. When it concerns the health and lives of people, there can be no equivocation.

I don't post much but as the mother of a peanut allergic child I was a bit horrified at Jason's casual attitude towards it. My son has had a reaction from being in the same room as peanut butter. My son has had reactions from things baked in pans that once baked peanut butter cookies. He had a reaction from someone having peanut butter on their skin. It's not a simple thing to make sure a kitchen is nut free.

I was not being "casual" about it. I've lived with a severe nut allergy (and an egg allergy) for 35 years and once you are old enough to manage it yourself you eventually learn not to freak out about your allergy, not to overreact, and not to let your allergy define your life.

As an individual, you just need to be careful about what you eat, err on the side of caution when someone else is preparing your food, and keep your allergy meds/epi-pen with you at all times. As an allergy-friendly producer, you need to be careful about sanitizing, err on the side of caution when purchasing ingredients from other manufacturers, have a process in place to avoid cross-contamination, and communicate this info to your customers so they can decide for themselves if it's safe for them. This is not "simple", but nor is it all that difficult...it's just another process that needs to be carefully followed.

I get where you are coming from, my daughter has an allergy to dairy, but when she is older and manages herself, she will be just fine. She will learn to manage her food intake and read labels, one day her allergy will just be her way of life. I'm not saying it is not a big deal, it just becomes life for them like it has for others. I know how you feel, my daughter won't even be going to school until she learns to ask questions and read labels, it is very scary when it is your child's life.
