Fruit Is a Safe Food for Allergies--Or Is It?

Some individuals are allergic to fruit and in those cases, it's obvious fruit would not be a "safe" food to offer, but what about those with milk, dairy, peanut or nut allergies? No problem, right? Think again! FAB reader Katie sent the above photo from an Edible Arrangements gift. The gift is a fruit bouquet or basket artfully arranged with wonderful fruit but it comes with the warning shown in the photo. Why? Because some fruit is dipped in chocolate and may have traces of peanuts, nuts, or milk. Good eye, Katie! Thanks to Katie for this reminder not to assume food is safe for your food allergies and to always read those labels.
