The number of people affected by food allergies increases each year. Current studies show that 50% of all fatal allergic reactions occur outside the home. This is of great concern to those with allergies as well as their families and friends. Learn current information on what causes an allergic reaction, the main food allergens, how to communicate with customers who have food allergies, and how to assure customers’ allergen needs are communicated within the operation. Being allergy aware is more important than ever.
