Why the Weatherford, Texas, School Board’s Anaphylaxis Policy Is a Bad Idea

Kids With Food Allergies ·
School is a common place for children to experience anaphylaxis – a serious allergic reaction. But the Weatherford Independent School District in Texas recently took a step backward.

They are worried about being on the hook for an unnecessary hospital visit, but is the potential death of a student really worth the risk?

I can't help but wonder what regulations were in place when this happened, and how a mistake of this type was not caught until after the items were sold. Do you think there was more than one way to prevent this from happening, or just an inevitable mistake?
