    DD is allergic to eggs. We avoid may contain, made on equipment.
    I wish people took allergies more seriously. It does my head in that people are so blasé about something that can kill my child.

    Dd6 is not anaphylactic but allergic to dairy and intolerant of a few other things. We don't worry about traces because she needs to eat more than a trace to have a reaction. Even with dairy she needs to consume a certain amount before she gets sick. It's such an individual thing.

    I'm allergic to eggs (not anaphylactic) and I have eaten products that say 'may contain traces' without having a reaction. I assume if there is a trace amount it's far too minute to get a reaction out of me, and I'm pretty sensitive.

    However, if my DS had a severe allergy I wouldn't take the risk with 'may contain traces' items. I'm an adult and I know how to manage my reactions if I have one, but when it comes to my child I would rather not risk it.
