Protect Yourself from Food Allergies | FoodSafety.gov
May is Food Allergy Action Month and May 10-16 is Allergen Awareness Week. We work to ensure that consumers have accurate, complete, and informative labels on the food that they buy. Food allergies are a top concern for us from a food safety perspective because while some allergies are just irritating, approximately 30,000 Americans go to the emergency room each year to get treated for allergic reactions to food. Read our latest blog on how to protect yourself from food allergies. Also check out our posts this week for more on allergens and how to protect yourself...Spoiler Alert: the Star Wars theme will make a cameo.
