I connect with people worldwide as a food allergy expert through my blog and the Onespot Allergy Facebook group. Because I’m also a Canadian lawyer, I’m often asked to comment on legal and policy issues affecting people with food allergies. Andy Oudman of 1290 CJBK radio asked for my opinion about WowButter not being allowed in Thames Valley District School Board schools here in London, Ontario. To hear my opinion, click on the play button on the image below to listen to the interview. Topics discussed are:
Sabrina’s Law, an Act to protect anaphylactic pupils.
Why do 90% of Canadian schools now have school wide peanut/nut safe policies?
Why is WowButter not safe to send to peanut free schools?
What liability issues does WowButter create for schools, teachers, and parents.
Companies that serve the needs of food allergic and gluten free consumers well, like Enjoy Life Foods.
