I had the same eye bugging reaction! Those are the attitudes that I am most fearful of, I can't understand why they don't understand that these allergies are LIFE-THREATENING! I am a summer camp counselor and I have several campers with severe peanut allergies (including my own brother), and when we tell parents that we are a peanut free camp they become livid! I have heard every excuse in the book; it is the only thing their child will eat, they can only afford to buy peanut butter etc.
It blows my mind sometimes. What I would like to do is find an information brochure for parents, explaining how severe allergic reactions can be. I would also like to find out how to stop venders from putting peanut products in machines at schools, parks and rec. departments. Any advice is greatly appreciated! I live in MA!
Thank You!

Good luck!
Just think, the place you should be the most safe, just isn't. It's a shame. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/frown.gif[/img]

That's horrible! Maybe they should start making the waiting room seats out of latex and giving out shellfish lollipops too while they're at it! I would be willing to help...what would we do?

You should not impose what you want on others. Your kid needs to be treated by a psychiatric physician. Dont try to be hitler by imposing what you want on others. Next thing you will say is that your kid is a vegetarian and therefore everyone should stop eating meet. He should be looked up in confinement if he has allergies because peanut is a natural material

You want it? You got it.
First, learn to spell correctly. Then we'll take you seriously. And no Hitler references are needed.
Secondly, yes, peanuts are a natural material. But so is radiation.
Meat residue won't kill anyone. Peanut residue might. If you read our posts, many parents have reported that their children were served peanut butter sandwiches while in the hospital due to anaphylaxis to peanuts.
We're just trying to keep our kids safe. We want them to continue to live. If that inconveniences you, we're sorry.

Kathy, Thank you! My family wanted to know why my eyes were bugging out when I read that post. Clearly just someone with nothing better to do on a Sunday afternoon than look for discussion boards to register on and make inflammatory comments. LOL!
