Thank you for dedicating your lives to making sure my child can't have things she isn't allergic to. I am grateful that you have taken the time and effort to dictate how all kids should live based on the problem your kid, and your kid alone, has.

Rest assured, if someone in my child's class has to be in a wheelchair, that I will follow your example and make sure that all children have to ride in them.

Thank you for catering to the interests of one at the expense of all.

Thank you for teaching our children that if they pout long enough, they will get thier own way.

Thank you for further limiting the options of vegetarians. I'm sure this is not a concern to you, since it's not your child.

I know you are with the trolls today, but some PA individuals are also vegan. I find it hard to believe vegans eat only PB and that it is hard to find other lunches. Give us a break. You are preaching to the preachers about how to feed on a restricted diet, LOL! Have fun and too bad you do not have something more interresting to do than to harass such a "lame" website. Becca

Do not presume to speak for me. My child is not allergic to peanuts, nor am I. It is no great sacrifice to keep our PB at home in order to avoid exposing those who are allergic. In thinking of the welfare of others, my child is learning a very important lesson you fail to mention ... compassion.

Compassion apparently involves demanding companies pull products from the shelves, or that they eliminate nut based products from thier kitchens.

Complaining that the peanut industry is a multi-billion dollar unstoppable machine, like it's somehow bent on killing your kid is apparently compassion.

"demanding companies" label and take necessary precautions to keep the public safe, yes

(such as checking their manufacturing processes and ingredients so as to be able to; eliminate, or label for cross contamination)

Companies pull products from shelves (recall) when their products pose a risk for whatever reason, for us, it is often when a product is not labeled as it should have been.

Please read up on the ADA and the Section 504 in the school laws. Schools MUST accomodate - and a life-threatening food allergy applies. It's not just the parents' wishes - it's the law.

One does not have to ban peanuts to accomidate special needs children.

Please educate yourselves a bit more... yes, to accomodate some there does have to be a ban. Not all, but some.
