Below is a recent article that I think is important to highlight since sesame allergy seems more and more common, yet it is not a popular food allergy conversation topic. In many other countries, sesame must be identified on food labels as peanuts and tree nuts are. The U.S. does not have the same labeling requirements for sesame, but growing numbers say we should. By the looks of it, FDA's plate is full of labeling issues (among other things!), but it seems it's time to include labeling for sesame and perhaps a few other food allergens on FDA's to-do list. What do you think?
