Time Magazine reports there are accounts of school nurses confiscating school lunch boxes to search for nut products and another report of a school district that evacuated a school bus full of 10-year olds when a stray peanut was found on the floor of the vehicle.
An owner and a deliveryman of a restaurant in England were recently convicted of manslaughter for delivering take-out food to a teenage girl who experienced a reaction to peanuts that caused irreversible brain damage on Jan. 1, 2017. The court said the restaurant had no systems or conditions in place to protect customers with allergies.
In an era of political correctness, the next thing you know kids will be banned from wearing Mr. Peanut shirts to school for fear of egging others on to bring peanuts to school. Allergic kids may now wear a "My Nemesis" T-shirt that displays a peanut graphic. (What a way for a kid to live.)
