He is grateful it was the weekend of the Food Allergy retreat to be surrounded by people who get it and were supportive in those few days after.

Scary stuff.

Metro now sells Twinkle Baker Decor with peanut free symbol.

Cake topping and decorations
Food colouring (liquid)

I've seen eyes, which always go over well with my grandkids, even with no other face, and kits to make animal pops.

Company Announcement

June 4, 2024, New Seasons Market of Portland, Oregon is recalling Strawberry Rhubarb Bakewell Tart, because it contains undeclared almond. People who have an allergy or severe sensitivity to almond run the risk of serious or life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume this product.

Strawberry Rhubarb Bakewell Tart was sold at the Bakery and Pastry departments in New Seasons Market stores located in Oregon and Washington from 03/22/24 to 06/03/24. Product has a 5-day shelf life.

Strawberry Rhubarb Bakewell Tart is merchandised in a plastic clamshell container with a black and white New Seasons Market scale label. All best if used by dates are impacted by this recall.

After a staff member consumed the Strawberry Rhubarb Bakewell Tart and had a mild reaction but did not seek medical attention, the manufacturer of the product was notified of this potential allergic reaction. The manufacturer confirmed the product did contain almond flour, but almond was not listed in the product specification. New Seasons Market initiated this recall because the scale label does not declare almond.

There have been no additional reports of adverse reactions to date.

This recall is being made with the knowledge of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Customers who have purchased the product and have an allergy to almonds are urged to dispose of it without consuming.

Thank goodness he's OK.  Perfect example of easily a mistake can happen - even to someone with an excellent grip on handling his allergies.

First -I'm okay ✅ But I had a severe allergic reaction last night 🙁
It was the final day of my allergy education tour, and the lessons I taught were needed on myself. Specifically - Epi first and Epi fast.
I have a lot to process in the next while. Anaphylaxis weighs so heavy for days on end afterwards.
I'm in Toronto for the weekend for an allergy conference I am so excited about! (@freetobemeevents). There was miscommunication about dinner last night at home - I don't care to share more details about the how/who/why at this time.
But I knew it was to cashews, and I knew it was bad immediately.
If anything, I am proud of how I handled it. I had 5-10 seconds of panic and a feeling of doom as I could feel my throat starting to swell. I then switched on a dime to "save yourself mode".
I asked a friend to call 911, I gave myself Epi (thank you Allerject for being such an easy to use product when your mind is scrambling). The ambulance came and I even insisted that they give me another dose of epi as they thought antihistamines would be next.
I was monitored for 5 hours at emerg for monitoring and on heavy steroids to ensure swelling is subdued this weekend.
I was scared, I'm emotional, and I'm trying to move on- as I don't know any other way. I'm so looking forward to a weekend with folks just like you - the supportive allergy community who "gets me", and gets that food allergies "don't always" rock.
But we live, we learn, and we can't let this condition slow us down. 👊

Has anyone ever heard of environmental allergies triggering EoE? The internet says it can make you more susceptible, but I hardly even get a runny nose from my environmental allergies.

Other than rice cakes made in a top-10-free facility, I don't know what else triggers it but it is mostly constant. The investigation continues. Waiting for a reassessment at the allergist first.

With my thyroid issue declared independent of my dysphagia and fatigue, we're back to investigating for EoE or MCAS. My dysphagia improves with extra strength antihistamines but can become quite severe without them, even causing complete choking (no air). Biopsies for EoE in 2017 were negative. Here's hoping for answers -- again.
