County Blog Asks If Restaurant Staff Should Receive Epi-Pen Training

Here is an interesting article from the Cotswald Journal about a blog started by the Gloucestershire County Council as a forum for discussions on food issues. "Digest This" is located at www.visionfoodhall.wordpress.com. One of the questions currently under discussion is whether or not restaurant staff should be trained in administering life-saving epinephrine.  Food labeling and many other food related issues also will be discussed in future posts. Residents are encouraged to participate and there also will be commentaries by medical and food professionals.  It sounds intriguing. It would be interesting to see what comes as a result of the discussions.
