Hurrah for Canada! I can imagine some of our members might begin to consider a trip to our neighbors to the north since now they also have to label for sesame, sulphites, and mustard.

Re: Six-Year-Old's Heart Stops After Eating Macadamia Nut Cookie, Life Saved by First Responders

Kids With Food Allergies ·
KFA ADMIN: There is one statement in the article that is incorrect that we would like to clarify. In the U.S., food manufacturers are not required to state if food was processed in the same facility as peanuts (or any other major food allergen). FDA regulated foods are required to list top 8 allergens in the ingredients list if the food contains one of those allergens (peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, soy, wheat, fish, shellfish).

hi i am new here and dealing with a range of food intolerances/allergies with my 2 year old son. does a recall like this mean the foods affected were just those in canada> or all foods?
Comment

Re: (Canada) Milk Allergy Alert: Lennie Ciglen Various Candy Bars

cheymom ·
Hi Nicole! Welcome to KFA! We are glad you found us. Generally, the recalls that say 'Canada' at the beginning are for those in Canada. However, you may find these foods in your area depending on your location. If in doubt, I would highly recommend calling the company to verify if the food is safe for your child. Hope that helps!
