I am a serious student doing a science fair project on genetically modified foods. I am concerned with loveones, with serious peanut allergies. I would appreciate if anyone who has information on products containing peanut genes, could notify me.

Check out this web page:
It is a New York Times article about soybeans that were modified with genes from the Brazil nut. The allergy-causing protein was also transfered. This article lists the company doing the genetic modification and the researchers who discovered that nut-allergic patients were allergic to the modified soybean as well.
As far as I know, there haven't been any more recent cases of this.
Good Luck! Katie
