Wow Phillip's mom, sounds like this may also be a public health issue as well. The pool needs a lesson in health issues as it relates to the pool.
We've started going to a local outdoor pool and the whole situation makes me uncomfortable. They have a designated eating area but not food restrictions. I was rather surprized given that the facility also has a huge day camp program which uses the pool every day. So we go and I watch him like a hawk.
I think that what I would be more concerned this is not so much a possible reaction form peanut contamination of the water itself but rather contamination of the many surfaces such as the railings, steps, ladder. Peanut butter is so sticky as we all know, and to me anyway, the risk of a contact reaction seems more plausable than a water reaction.
Just my two cents worth.
