Labour Day Celebrations: Tips for Staying Safe or Hosting Guests with Allergies

Labour-Day.jpg (275×300)With Labour Day just around the corner, many of us will be celebrating the end of summer with family and friends at BBQ’s, picnics, and outdoor gatherings. It is also a time when those with anaphylaxis caused by food allergies need to take special precautions. 

“The best and unplanned benefit of a MedicAlert bracelet is the questions it prompts when people see it. We have been at numerous potlucks, camping trips and BBQs where someone asks what it is for, and as a result, people don’t bring out the peanut desserts and bags of peanuts they have brought to share.
