There are approximately 200,000 emergency department visits and almost 10,000 hospitalizations each year across America due to food allergies.
Here is what the US Food and Drug Administration(FDA) have to say:
“Each year, millions of Americans have allergic reactions to food. Although most food allergies cause relatively mild and minor symptoms, some food allergies can cause severe reactions, and may even be life-threatening.
There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of food allergens – and early recognition and management of allergic reactions to food – are important measures to prevent serious health consequences.”
