Wow. I cannot believe how strongly she came out against a ban. It makes me mad because I can picture a table full of little kids eating messy pb&j sandwhiches with a terrified little pa kid right in the middle of it all. I don't like the assumption that if there is a ban the parents and kids will have a false sense of security. Any parent with common sense knows that it will only help to reduce the risk, not eliminate it all together. It's disturbing. Thanks for sharing. It's important to know what type of information is getting out to the principals. Miriam

Four out of six fatalities occured at school. And implementing the ban, I guess, is going to increase those numbers. Doesn't make sense to me, all the reason to do two things...A ban of some sort, whether it's school or classroom....And two, more education.
But it doesn't matter how much education is taught if the risk are still high, so the key is both education and reduced risks!
The other thing that really got me was number 5:
"Ask teachers to avoid hands-on lessons or projects that include food, such as using pieces of candy for counting or making bird feeders from pine cones rolled in peanut butter."
ASK THEM? Gee didn't know that making bird feeders rolled in peanut butter is such a neccessity for my child to be a productive part of this world. Give me a break! [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/mad.gif[/img]
Thanks River for posting this, it sure was interesting, to say the least. I will be emailing them.

I emailed them and recv'd an email that was a carbon copy (CC) to Anne Furlong, that stated:
Anne, we recv'd this email regarding your article in the May 2002 issue of Principal, you may want to respond.
Wonder if she'll respond. Thought I'd let you guys know.

It looks to me like that article is from their November 1997 newsletter... where did it say May 2002? (I know it is a picky point, but the date would affect my thinking since 1997 would be consistent w/ FAN's old position on this topic & 2002 would not...)

Anne,
I'm not sure where that date came from, I can't find a date on the website that says which Newsletter it is. This is the reply I recieved, and the email I sent:

Still haven't heard a word.
As we talked about off board, I will email Anne Furlong directly off the FWD email I recv'd and let you know if I do get anything back from that.
