Schools and Food Allergies / Re: Food in Schools, Part Deux
« Last post by ajasfolks2 on Today at 06:20:20 PM »
So, it doesn't go away in college.

It's just that the now-adultish child has to deal with it entirely on his/her own.

Daunting.

Frustrating.

Isolating.



And sometimes freeing.  Especially when there is instant recognition of bribery and currying favor.

Respect lost.

And ability to recognize coercion and bs gained.

Mfrs. & Packaged Food / Don't Go Nuts Bars and snacks
« Last post by my3guys on Today at 05:07:48 PM »
My kids absoutely love these bars! We've only tried the Gorilla Power flavor so far but they are a huge hit!

https://dontgonuts.com/

This is the first snack bar with safe ingredients that I've found that they actually enjoy. I'm thrilled!!

Check out their safety procedures:

That is the profound question we asked ourselves as we created Don‘t Go Nuts. A nut-free facility was required, of course, but we felt that we needed to do more. After much research, we developed what we call the Field to Fingers Nut-Free Process, a first-of-its-kind inspired practice to ensure that every step of the journey is free of peanuts and tree nuts.

• From start to finish, our nut-free ingredients are processed using only nut-free equipment. We require confirmation of that from each and every supplier.
• We built our own nut-free facility in which to prepare our foods.
• Our facility includes many security features. Lily‘s favorite is the ingredient receiving room, where dust is blown from ingredient packages and removed from the building before ingredients enter other areas.

Anyone hear if Mylan/Pfizer issued a response to the FDA yet?  Would such a letter be made public?

Will it be one of those cases where even if patients "win", we lose?

Yes.  Of course.  Naturally.


Naturally.   Yeah.    :)


I really don't want to be a cynical person ... but that's really hard these days.

Reactions & Stories / Re: Allergic reaction in the news
« Last post by gvmom on Today at 11:43:24 AM »
I read in one story that he had eaten a cookie that had peanuts. 

While I understand that sometimes people don't know how the person ended up ingesting their allergen, if they do know, I really wish they'd put more complete information.

This young man was old enough to read labels and to know about eating foods that could be cross contaminated.  How he managed to eat a cookie with peanuts would be of interest to me.... especially if what this means is there is some product that is mislabeled on a store shelf somewhere that needs to be recalled before someone else ends up having a reaction. 

It is so incredibly sad. 

edited to add: I found the article:

Yes.  Of course.  Naturally.  Unless there is more money and less regulation, implementation & enforcement, in anything that might be an actual win.

I probably should have asked if you were really being rhetorical......

Their website doesn't include PN-free labeling - just TN-free.  I assumed that was because they don't have any products with PN?
