Rhode Island law states that restaurants must:
- Display a food allergy awareness poster in the staff area
- Incorporate the customer notification on all menus and menu boards of their obligation to inform servers of their food allergies,
- Have managers trained and knowledgeable about food allergies as it pertains to food preparation.
In addition to the training and notifications, the law designed a program for restaurants through which they can be designated as “Food Allergy Friendly,” and provides a public database of restaurants earning that designation.
