    The spores can be found in all types of honey, organic is no different. Also, like pp mentioned, it's not an allergy - it's due to a bacteria.

    Each to their own. Everyone should weigh up their own risks...and just because your children weren't affected, doesn't mean the risks aren't very real.

    Good for the risks..... There is a risk crossing the road too. Maybe I'm taking it the wrong way but your remarks where a little condescending
    Im a very natural parent who refuses to buy into the kids can't have rules as I choose to eat very naturally there are risks with everything all I was trying to tell the op was that she should research it an not rely on strangers opinions on what to feed her child
