pWell, my daughter had to have the Epi for the first time today. She had a bagel that was supposedly "nut-free." She initially said that her throat felt funny. I gave her Benydryl, and she felt better. She has had reactions like this with this symptom only, so I thought she was O.K. and I took her to school. I explained everything to the teacher and the nurse so they could watch her. Well, I got a call after she was there for about 30 minutes. She had vomited and they gave her the Epi. I took her to the ER and she was fine after that. They put her on a heart monitor because of the Epi. /p
pSomething I want to stress to everyone is tht th ER doctor didn't think that the vomiting was a symtptom. I told him of course it was, that she had this type of reaction before. But it is scary being in the ER and not feeling that they know what they are doing. He also said that her reaction would have been immediate./p
pAlso, I called the bakery and they told me (as they had when I bought the bagels) that they were nut-free. They didn't make any other nut varieties, so I didn't think it was cross-contamination. I asked for an ingredient list and they told me that they didn't have one. I told them to get one and call me back. Well, they called back and the bagel had a small abount of walnuts. The bakery refused to change their sign at my request, stating they can't do anything without corporate approval. So, I will be calling their corporate office. I will also post under restaurants. It is Panera Bread in Pennsylvania and Ohio, with many new locations opening up./p
