Has anyone ever heard of a spinach allergy? I have peanut allergy. Yesterday, I fed my 15-mth old spinach for the 1st or second time from a can Del Monte was the brand and less than two minutes he was rubbing his eyes and itching his arm, and broke out in a red rash all over his face, not hives. By the time I called his ped..office for the benadryl dose it was gone. Is anyone in the group familiar with this?

Was the spinach in a salty water in the can? Perhaps little one played with it more than ate it and got irritated by the saline on his skin?
