Food Poisoning Bulletin constantly reports on food recalls for the eight major food allergens: peanuts, tree nuts, milk, fin fish, shellfish, wheat, eggs, and soy. Those eight allergens together cause at least 30,000 emergency room visits, 2000 hospitalizations, and 150 deaths in the U.S. every year. Recently we became aware that some foodborne allergens can become airborne.

This is not a cure, but is trying to reduce the risk that exposure to tiny amounts of peanuts will trigger a life-threatening reaction. Scientists are hoping to develop an oral medication. … [Read more...]
