Marni Gilbert has a severe allergy to peanuts and dies after consuming some at a school camp. Unfortunately this fictitious case study parallels many cases of children dying after eating certain foods or coming into contact with allergens. Like Marni's, their lives could have been saved. Allergens and Food Safety features interviews and footage throughout. The program covers: - What allergens are. - Reactions and responses. - Rules and regulations. - The role of food manufacturers in food safety. - The role of retailers and workers in food safety. This is a comprehensive look at processes, safety issues and control measures of food allergens in the manufacturing, regulation and selling of food.
