E-Greetings from the Allergy Advocacy Association
Summer greetings! We hope your plants and lawn are surviving the current drought — at least it’s nice to see the sun every day. Don’t forget our Rochester Red Wings for FOOD ALLERGY AWARENESS DAY at Frontier Field on Sunday, July 31st at 1:35pm. We will dedicate a new ‘Peanut Aware Section’ of seating and pass out information to help educate the public on how we can all play a part in keeping those with life-threatening allergies safe.
Here’s a local company that “gets it.” Once Again Corp. in Nunda, NY produces organic nut butter, and doesn’t want to risk its cashew and almond products mixing with its peanuts by mistake. So they are building a brand new production facility that will make its peanut products only. President Bob Gelser says he knows about the rising number of Americans with peanut allergies and doesn’t want customers with those allergies exposed to his other products. “With an independent production area, there’s no concern about any type of contamination.” Don’t you wish all food companies had this level of awareness and concern?
Enjoy the rest of your summer!
