Other Food Allergies
My 14 month old son has multiple FA's and was diagnosed with a blood test at 6 months. Peanuts was his highest (3) and we have entirely eliminated them from our house. We have had accidents where he gets into something with other allergies and know what to expect however we have no idea how severe his peanut is. We learned the hard way that he is severly allergic to sesame (now have epipen) and have read that the reaction is common with severe peanut allergy. I'm concerned because my family wants a deep fried turkey for Thanksgiving and are telling me it has to be fried in peanut oil. It will be fried outside but I'm concerned about cross-contamination. Should I really be worried about this? and how do I handle the family? Until now they have been entirely understanding.
