We used this when going to Cozumel.  A friend who is a court interpreter in Dallas gave the Spanish for these questions:

My son/daughter is allergic to peanuts. He cannot eat even one peanut or one drop of peanut oil or any peanut products. Eating them could cause his death.
Mi hijo/hija tiene alergia a cacahuetes. No puede comer ni un cacahuete, ni una gota de aceite de cacahuetes ni productos de cacahuetes. Comiéndolos puede causar su muerte.

Does this food have peanuts or peanut products in it?
Esta comida tiene cacahuetes or productos de cacahuetes?

Are there any nuts at all in this (food)? 
Esta comida tiene algún nuez?

Was this fried in peanut oil? 
Está esto frita en aceite de cacahuete?

Was this made with peanut flour? 
Esto tiene harina de cacahuete?

I need to call an ambulance.
Necesito llamar una ambulancia.

Where is the hospital? 
Dónde está el hospital?

It is very important that you bring epinephrine.
Es muy importante que traigan epinefrina.

This is an emergency. We must get to the hospital in 15 minutes or my son/daughter could die.
Esta es una emergencia. Tenemos que llegar al hospital dentro de 15 minutes or podría fallecer mi hijo/hija.

Pronunciation key:
traiga -- try-gah.
aceite -- ah-say-teh.

In South America, the word mani refers to peanut butter.

Me: Sesame, shellfish, chamomile, sage
DS: Peanuts

Found a new app for international allergy chef cards!

I wish it mentioned cross-contact in the alert, but still a good starting point.  More languages are to come.  I'm going to download this right now...
ANA peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, potato, sorghum
