Starting in 2006, foods must clearly label common allergens in PLAIN ENGLISH, rather than using scientific jargon. The common allergens will be listed below the list of ingredients, usually in bold print. If one of Kaleigh's allergens is not listed, you must still read the rest of the ingredients to make sure. If you see the words "egg" "milk", etc. you can stop reading. She can't have it!

This information is condensed from handouts from Dr. Casterline, Kaleigh's allergist, and allergy websites.
