Mary, thanks so much for the link.

My heart goes out to that family! If this isn't an indication to ASK EACH AND EVERY TIME if a food contains nuts, I don't know what else would get the point across of how deadly this allergy is and the importance of carrying an Epi-Pen. Such a tragedy that could have been avoided! I couldn't imagine my child going through life with a peanut allergy "tasting" food to see if it had nuts in it. I have a very hard time understanding this!
