8 Steps to an Allergy-Friendly Restaurant

Allergy-Friendly-RestaurantApproximately 15 million Americans have food allergies with about 5.9 million of those individuals under the age of 18. For those in the restaurant industry, this growing number is an increasing concern. 

Every year, approximately 200,000 Americans obtain emergency medical care due to an allergic reaction from food, and approximately 40 percent of children with food allergies have gone into anaphylactic shock—a serious and possibly fatal allergic reaction that requires immediate medical attention. Epinephrine is the only known treatment and must be administered within minutes from the onset of the reaction.
