According to the Food Allergy.org ‘Up to 15 million Americans have food allergies, including 5.9 million children under age 18. That's 1 in 13 children, or roughly two in every classroom. About 30 percent of children with food allergies are allergic to more than one food.’
With the number of food allergy sufferers going up every year in the USA state regulations are getting tighter to make sure staff in the foodservice industry are trained in Allergen Awareness.
In West Virginia there are no state mandates on Allergen Awareness training, however understanding the dangers of food allergies is highly recommended.
Always Food Safe’s allergy training is perfect for staff who need to understand how to deal with a food allergy sufferer from taking their order to receiving their food.
The training takes under an hour and will teach you the basics in Allergen Awareness – this training could save someone’s life!
