FOOD ALLERGY TRAINING & CERTIFICATION NEW YEAR 2020 NEW LAW
 
New California Law for 2020- All employees dealing with food preparation must be trained and certified in "Food Allergen Safety" a CDC study shows 8% of children in the U.S. suffer from Food Allergies, that's 1 in 13 children and 10.8% of adults, or 1 in 10 adults have Food Allergies. Follow the link to take this online training (to be prepared for 2021) at ServSafe.com https://lnkd.in/geNxtpa

OTHER FOOD ALLERGIES

A person can be allergic to virtually any food. While only eight (milk, egg, peanut, tree nuts, soy, wheat, fish and shellfish) account for about 90 percent of all reactions, allergic reactions have been reported to many other foods.

While far from complete, this list gives an overview of some less common food allergies.
