Announcement
Nine Whole Foods Market stores in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island are voluntarily recalling cheesecake bars because the product potentially contained a tree nut allergen (almond flour) that was not listed on the product label. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almonds run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reactions if they consume these products.
All affected products have been removed from store shelves. The cheesecake bars were sold in clear plastic packages and can be identified by the PLU number 240801. The products were sold between May 2017 and January 12, 2018. The issue was discovered by Whole Foods Market after the incorrect product was shipped by the supplier to the distributor. No reactions have been reported to date.
The cheesecake bars were sold in the following locations in the North Atlantic region:
55 Welles St, Glastonbury, CT
40 Railroad St, Andover, MA
808 Massachusetts Avenue, Arlington, MA
200 Alewife Brook Parkway, Cambridge, MA
340 River St, Cambridge, MA
327 Russell St, Hadley, MA
990 Iyannough Rd, Hyannis, MA
536 Boston Post Rd, Sudbury, MA
151 Sockanosset Cross Rd, Cranston, RI

Looking for restaurant suggestions — my son is allergic to eggs and tree nuts. I’d love nut-free restaurant options, but would potentially be open to places with nuts if they’re super allergy aware. Thanks in advance!

So getting all the targeted ads because pregnant...

Saw this one last night: https://www.spoonfulone.com/

Uses the peanut early exposure stuff to suggest doing the same for top 8 + sesame.  Each packet has powdered peanuts, milk, eggs, almonds, soy, wheat, shrimp, cashews, hazelnuts, oat, cod, pecans, salmon, sesame, walnuts, and pistachios.  Suggests one packet a day mixed with food starting as early as 4 months.

It also claims to "support your child's long term immune health" which doesn't really seem to have a whole lot of meaning.

Yeah, I don't have OAS to other things, either even though I'm allergic to so many pollens, grasses, etc.  I'm a bit surprised that if potatoes cause OAS I don't have actual mouth symptoms - no swelling, tingling, itchy palate, redness around my mouth - just mucous in my deep throat/ upper lungs - past my vocal cords, so not where the food actually touches.  It's just weird, but maybe potato OAS is weird...or I am?  ;)

Rebekah, that sounds a lot like OAS, which is what my allergist suspects mine will be, though I am still skeptical because I have no other history of typical OAS symptoms at all, to anything.  He has questioned me about apples, celery, and some other OAS foods twice, but I can eat an unwashed Apple off an orchard tree in the height of pollen season without any issue whatsoever. 

I asked about meds (all ok since I don't regularly take antihistamines) but not breakfast, so I will call about that. 

Good point on eating the flesh and skin.

Oh, I just read RC’s post. Maybe russets would be best.

I don’t know if they specified thebpotato, but Yukon Golds are naturally softer and more “buttery” by themselves. They are really so much easier to eat than russets.
