From Anaphylaxis Canada:-

Dear Registrant,

We encourage individuals with food allergies and those who may buy products on
their behalf to participate in a study on food labeling. Please review the
message below from the research team and contact the research coordinator
directly for more information. You may also wish to pass this information on to
other individuals who are affected by food allergies.

For your information,
Anaphylaxis Canada
***

The following message is from the McGill University Health Centre

Do you have food allergies? Do you provide or prepare food for people with food
allergies? Do you often see food labels with statements such as:
- "May contain milk"
- "May contain traces of peanuts"
- "Manufactured in a facility that also processes egg"?

Do you know what these statements truly mean for the food allergic individual?
If these questions affect you or someone you provide food for, you may be
interested in participating in a study that may help to improve food labelling
for the allergic consumer.

Our primary research goal is to learn more about how food allergic consumers,
and those who buy on their behalf, interpret various food labels with
precautionary statements such as "may contain peanuts". The study involves
completing a questionnaire which will take only 10-20 minutes.

To be eligible, individuals should:
1. be 18 years old or older
2. have a food allergy OR shop or prepare foods for someone with a food
allergy
3. be a Canadian resident

Should you wish to participate in this study or require further information,
please contact:
Ms. Rebecca Wickett, Study Coordinator
Tel: (514) 934-1934 extension 44735
Email: [email]food.labelling@epimgh.mcgill.ca[/email]

Please contact us by August 31, 2007

The principal investigators for this research study are:
Dr. Ann Clarke, MD, McGill University Health Centre - Montreal, Quebec
Dr. Susan Waserman, MD, McMaster University Medical Center - Hamilton, Ontario

Best wishes! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]
