FARE Issues Statement on New Paper Highlighting New Findings Related to Allergic Reactions in American Restaurants

STATEMENT TO BE ATTRIBUTED TO LISA GABLE, CHIEF EXECUTIVE OFFICER, FARE:
“Earlier today, a paper co-authored by FARE medical advisor Dr. Thomas Casale published in The Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice showcased the prevalence of peanut, tree nut, and milk in allergic reactions taking place in American restaurants and found that more than 1 in 4 such reactions result in the administration of epinephrine. Utilizing valuable data from the FARE Patient Registry, the paper not only shines a spotlight on the very critical need for clear labeling and transparency on menus but also the importance of education and awareness around food allergies and anaphylaxis through certified training programs for the those who work in the restaurant and food service industry, including FARE’s own FARECheck program.”
