Food Allergy & Gluten-Free Training by AllerTrain™

Food allergies affect about 2 percent of adults and 4 to 8 percent of children in the United States. Each year in the U.S., it is estimated that anaphylaxis to food results in 30,000 emergency room visits, 2,000 hospitalizations, and 150 deaths. A food allergy is a specific type of adverse food reaction involving the immune system. The body produces what is called an allergic, or immunoglobulin E (IgE), antibody to a food. Once a specific food is ingested and binds with the IgE antibody, an allergic reaction ensues.

Required Training

Montgomery County, Maryland and the state of Illinois and Michigan were the first states to require ANSI accredited food allergy awareness training for food managers. As of right now, it is suggested that all other states follow suit to get ahead of the curve and to help protect your customers.
