My son had an anaphylactic reaction this past Friday. He started swelling one hour after eating some store-bought popcorn (already popped). We headed to the hospital (5:00 rush hour on a Friday). I had to use the Epi-Pen for the first time (I pulled over on the side of the highway). It was a very scary experience. This was his first reaction since his initial reaction 6 years ago.
I called the company today and they say there are no peanut products in their facility. So I don't know what to think. I'm scared to have my son eat anything at this point. Our house is peanut-free and I don't know what else he could have reacted to. Any thoughts? It seems likely that it was the popcorn, but I don't know.
