Thanks for the link. Typical ignorant comments there too. That is the kind of stuff that makes me terrified for my dd as she gets older.

I agree...there is so much educating that needs to be done to non allergic families!

I cannot, for the life of me, figure out why airlines don't ban peanuts on board. AA told me "they can't control what people bring on board". Nonsense. Don't the airlines control what we bring on? No liquids, no flammables, etc...? Why not peanuts?
I signed my dd up for a little daycamp thing, and told the instructor that she had a peanut allergy. The woman told me they were equipped to deal, etc.. and then told me that her cousin had a reaction to peanuts *During A Flight* and they had to do an emergency landing (this was years ago). Wouldn't it be far more convenient to just not serve the peanuts to begin with? Are they so essential to human nutrition & sustinence during a flight? NO! Epi-pens and benadryl only buy you so much time, kwim?
