Check out this great post by fellow allergy mom (of four!) Anne Marie (excerpt):
I understand it’s all about CYA for the businesses. But what about the
consumers? We feel safer now with the foods we feed our kids, but the
“safe-food-pool” seems to be dwindling. Even some of the pretzels I
used to buy for my other food allergic daughter (only eggs and peanuts)
now contain traces of peanuts. Is it a new manufacturing process, or
are the companies just letting us know now how they really do things?
Can my kids still eat those foods? Or did the risk all of a sudden go
up just because my knowledge changed?
Watch for Anne Marie to be a guest on the show in the future, as well.
