It may seem implausible that so much harm can result from such a seemingly innocent, useful food.
But, it’s the peanut’s usefulness that makes it so dangerous.
Peanuts and peanut products are used in a wide variety of packaged foods, but are not always listed as an ingredient.
Since it’s possible for even the slightest trace of peanut protein to trigger an allergic reaction, these hidden ingredients can cause considerable harm.
In some cases, even kissing a person who’s just eaten a “peanuty” food can be dangerous.
If you have a peanut allergy never assume that foods are made without peanuts.
Call the manufacturer and find out. Also, before you move in for a kiss, make sure that he or she is peanut free.
