As mentioned in a previous post, the number of people suffering from food allergies is growing at an alarming rate. As a restaurant owner, it is the responsibility of you and your staff to do everything you can to keep your customers safe and to make this health issue a number-one priority. It is not an impossible task, but it is one that requires ongoing diligence and awareness.
Food allergies are becoming more prevalent and severe, according to the Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Network (FAAN). More and more it seems that people, young and old, are developing allergies and intolerances to certain foods and ingredients. Some of these allergies can be life-threating, while others are “just” inconvenient, as they cause less dire symptoms that people still want to avoid.
