We inadvertantly gave our son (18 mos), who has a peanut allergy, Bush's Baked Beans with his dinner tonight. He had a mild reaction, which resulted in hives around his mouth. After reading the label we found that that the beans are made with peanut oil.

He was recently diagnosed with the peanut allergy and we wanted to get some information on what to do when this type of incident happens. Do you give him the EPIPEN regardless of the reaction? In this case, we gave him Benadryl because we did not see any signs of breathing problems. We have had some contradictory advice on when to administer the EPIPEN. Any advice/ information would be appreciated. Thanks -- Boyce

pThere are differing opinions on when to administer the epipen. I would call your doctor and discuss it with him/her. I would also stick close to your child during the night in case of the outside chance of a delayed reaction. Some feel that giving the benydryl may mask the reaction temporarily. Many PA people do not react to peanut oil (there are different types). My philosophy is when in doubt, get to a Dr. or E.R. Good luck and let us know how it goes./p

pwhat flavor? i just bought some original and didnt see that on the label. i have tried to give him BB's in the past and he didnt eat them.br /
It is scary isnt it? it seems like a mild reaction to just give benadryl but i would be scared of a delayed reaction. i have told anyone who takes care of him, in doubt use the pen as everything i have read states that it is better to error on the side of caution and give it to him. but then if you do you need to take him to the er./p

pThe flavor was Barbeque, which is a "new" flavor. Thanks for the advice. /p

pThose happen to be my favorite! I read in an old posting that they contained Peanut Oil. A few weeks ago I served them to my family with the exception on my PA daughter. Although I was very careful she became very ill. Vomiting all night. I have no proof that it was caused from these BBQ Baked Beans, but despite my love for them I am not purchasing them for my family again./p

pMy PA 5 year old was tested at John's Hopkins because he kept having a mild reaction that we could not trace to the peanuts. He is also allergic to some other legumes. Dr. told us its rare but some PA also react to some legumes. He had been reacting to peas. He also reacted to navy beans when he had a bite of baked beans.../p

pThe beans that are used in baked beans fall in the same category as peanuts. They are legumes. My daughter can have baked beans, but I choose not to give them to her because of her allergy to peanuts. I also give her benadryl at the first sign of a reaction if that doesnt seem to do the trick then I have to administer the epi pen. She is also 6 years old and has been dealing with this for about 2 years. She knows all the symptoms and can tell you the minute she eats something and feels anything differant. Good luck, it's a battle having this for an allergy. She also can't have green beans and peas. Her mouth felt funny eatting a chicken pot pie, and one time breaking string beans her hand got itchy. You should have a list of what falls in the category with the peanuts. My daughter also has a nut allergy which is a differant category../p

My son is also allergic to beans because they are related to peanuts. He has had a bad reaction in the past. Please check with your doctor before giving your peanut allergy child beans.

Thank you for the information, but fortunately he doesn't seem to be allergic to any of the other legumes, he's 4 1/2 and has eaten every bean and pea under the sun! He has a moderate allergy to milk but only through skin test, and has never had any reactions...many EA's w/asthma flare ups, but thankful no other food allergies...I don't know how some of you feed your children, I guess I should be thankful he's only allergic to pnuts (unless he's TNA too, avoid them like the pnuts)

Thanks for the info. I will call bush too, since we had quit using them in the past because of the peanut oil. My hubby will be thrilled-he loves their baked beans. [img]http://uumor.pair.com/nutalle2/peanutallergy/smile.gif[/img]

Just make sure to check each label as canned good can hang around for along time. The "old" cans of barbeque flavor will still have peanuts of course. I guess this is obvious but I was just at the store & saw one labeled with peanut oil. Must be the old batch. Amy
