I live in SC. when my son was diagnosed w/ his severe PA we were told that it is still legal for restauraunts in this state to cook in peanut oil. Now how do I find out if this is really true? And secondly, if it is true , how do I start to change it?
Does anyone know?

Restaurants can use whatever they like in their own place, and I don't think there will ever be a law to change that. Especially since FAAN states that peanut oil is ok for "most" PA people. The only thing to do is educate them and hope they change to another oil for "PC" reasons.

Yeah, good luck convincing a restaurant chain to change their oil. Chick-fil-A uses peanut oil insisting it's healthy. I told them that the vegetable oil in my house had fewer transfats than their peanut oil and calorie wise was a lot better too. If other food places can avoid using peanut oil, why can't they? I told them that they have lost not just one customer but quite a few because of their bad attitude. No one in my family has been since.

I don't think there is any type of law in any state that says restaurants cannot use peanut oil. Too bad there wasn't one.
