It looks better if you go to the youtube page and click the “small” button.
I could not get into the conference call, but it is a very educational conversation.
For various reasons, the Allergy News, LLC podcast is on haitus and will remain so indefinitely.
I would like, eventually, to start doing the show again, however, if the plans I am currently pursuing are fortuitous, I probably will not have time to do Allergy News anymore.
For the time being, I will continue updating the blog with recalls and links that are submitted to me via email. Once in awhile I will probably still drop in an opinion piece of my own re: dealing with food allergies in a school setting.
Make no mistake: I am still here. The blog will go on, allergyware.com will go on.
I enjoy the freedom to carry on Allergy News in podcast or even radio form when the timing is right for such a project. You never know when that timing will roll around again.
Thanks to those who have been listeners. I will leave the archives up, or course.
Get in touch. The toll-free line and my email address will still function.
Allergy News will return, I assure you–right now we are still hammered booking Steve’s weddings for the year. Being self-employed pulls you different directions, what can I say? But the show will return. I did not intend to be on hiatus, but the transition to my being home full-time has been a little more challenging than I thought. Hang in there, faithful listeners. We shall return.
In the meantime:
MILK ALLERGY ALERT
January 31, 2007
United States Bakery is recalling all 12-oz. packages of Betsy Ross
Brand “Chocolate Donuts” and “Old Fashioned Donuts” because the whey listed
on the label does not declare it is a derivative of milk.
The recalled “Old Fashioned Donuts” and “Chocolate Donuts” are sold in
convenience stores in Idaho, Oregon, Washington, and Wyoming.
The donuts are packaged in red, white, and blue boxes with a package code
prior to and including SELL BY FEB 9 FS. There are 6 donuts per package
with a net weight of 12 ounces. Individual product containers are
identified with UPC#72220-22080 and UPC#72220-22081.
Consumers who have purchased the product may return it to the place of
purchase for a full refund. Consumers with questions may contact the
company at (206) 322-0931 or (888) 307-2867.
Just wanted to remind you all that the latest contest is for the visual artists among us, kids and adults alike are encouraged to enter. There will be one winner and the prize package is the best ever, I must say–worth about $100, thereabouts.
To learn more, please listen to the latest podcast, and feel free to leave comments or send email if you have any questions! 🙂

Hooray, I have internet here. I’ll record the podcast ASAP and announce the winner of the goodie giveaway!!!
Also, allergyware.com is back up! Thank you, webhost! When I get the long-term sponsorship I seek, I will be moving both this blog and my allergy alert gear website to a different server, with no down time…ever. 😛
I had hoped to record the latest edition of Allergy News over the weekend, but it was not to be. I’ve got literally two dozen emails from y’all this time, so there is no way I can address them all on the show, but I will do my best to hit the highlights.
Mainly, I want to focus on the allergy headlines this week.
Of course, I will also be announcing the winner of the goody bag, as well, so make sure and send in your entries while there’s still a few remaining hours! I’m not sure if I will record the show tonight, or what–several factors influence whether or not this show will go live over this coming week or next weekend.
EGAD! I just went to post a link to allergyware.com here, and for some reason the site is down. 😦 If you are having any trouble accessing the site, please send me an email at email@example.com and let me know, okay?
