Please sign this petition to the FDA requiring better labeling of seeds.  It is focused on sesame, but also urges the FDA to look at all "seeds" as a category, much like they already do for "tree nuts".  https://www.change.org/p/fda-add-sesame-seeds-as-an-allergen-to-us-product-labeling-laws-require-them-to-be-disclosed-on-us-food-labels  Anyone can sign this informal petition on Change.org, but the more signatures, the more they will take notice. 

FYI:  This informal petition led to a more formal "citizen's petition" by CSPI, which is not the type that take signatures, but rather, is the type the FDA must reply to by law!  http://cspinet.org/new/201411181.html

Again, here's where to sign the original petition that started it all:  https://www.change.org/p/fda-add-sesame-seeds-as-an-allergen-to-us-product-labeling-laws-require-them-to-be-disclosed-on-us-food-labels

me - deadly - took ages to figure out what it was, as it's in everything - at first we thought, sesame, but eventually got it to flax - if I touch it, i'm done. If I walk in a healthfood store, I can dash to the aisle to buy the one thing i want and i have to leave right away - i'm so very allergic to it. Last time I touched a flaxseed to my lips (in a breakfast bar, back when i could eat nuts), i was unconscious for 6 hours and woke up with chest pains - I must have been struggling to breathe. Terrible.
