Would someone be kind enough to tell me what the FAN organization I've seen mentioned in many postings is? I'm new to the peanut allergy scene and would appreciate any info. Thank you.

Hi arachide - I'm a fellow Canadian and since FAN is a US based organization, perhaps you'd like the website for a similar organization here in Canada. Thanks to Kathryn, who provided this information under the Restaurants heading, we have access to AAIA (Allergy and Asthma Awareness Association). The website is [url="http://www.cadvision.com/allergy"]http://www.cadvision.com/allergy[/url]
I would recommend you check out this site, because you may find an AAIA office in the Montreal area. Good luck!
