Dear Registrant, We thought you'd like to know about some new resources (French and English) developed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada.These resources can be found on CFIA's website and Health Canada's website. The main CFIA Food Allergen web page, which provides food allergen and related information can be found at the address below. Scroll down to "Fact Sheets" where you can download brochures for the nine priority food allergens. These were developed with input from the Canadian Society of Allergy and Clinical Immunology and allergy associations, including Anaphylaxis Canada.
