Food testing not allergy testing

I need some help with this please. I had a meal a local restaurant yesterday and felt a reaction (itchy mouth and throat) coming on immediately following finishing the first piece of food. My girlfriend saved the rest of the food, and I am interested to verify the food had peanuts in it. I contacted the restaurant, and thought they were very understanding, they stated it was impossible that any peanut ended up in the pizza. I know it did, how can I prove it to them? Please, your help is appreciated.

Someone mentioned having food analyzed by the FDA a few months ago. Anyone else remember this?

Here is a link to the FDA for reporting problems with food.

Also, there are phone numbers to contact the FDA for each state under this FAN link (just scroll down the page a little bit):

Good luck pursuing this.
