A special treat this week from down under

January 21, 2006 at 7:57 am (Allergy News Podcast. Listen free., Allergy News!, Blog & Websites, Photos, social issues)

Since my voice has failed me, Aaron Dwyer of allergysmart.net stepped up to the plate and has filled in this week for me on Allergy News. He details what steps his family took to get his child’s school ready for food allergies. It’s a great listen. Enjoy!

Podsafe music this week by Hungry Lucy (High Price of Mistakes, Shine) and transparencies (Off to School). Click here for more info.

The news I was going to cover:

  • The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Networks email alert system is changing. Visit their site for more info–your current warnings will stop and you need to sign up again.
  • Driggs Farms is recalling Marsh Premium Half Gallon Chocolate Ice Cream due to undeclared almonds.
  • Nestlé USA alerts FAAN members that Nestlé Turtles now have cashews in addition to the pecans they have always contained. Varieties made with milk chocolate also contain milk and soy lecithin.
  • new allergy articles on clubmom.com
  • Robert’s American Gourmet is recalling Robert’s American Gourmet WHEAT FREE CHAOS Snack Mix due to undeclared wheat. Some of the packages may contain wheat pretzels.

Lots of news in the queue for next week, as well. Hopefully the voice will only be gone for one week, if it follows the trend of the past three or four years. 🙂

Have a great weekend! I hope you enjoy Aaron’s podcast as much I do!
