Some 15 million people in the U.S. have food allergies; an estimated 9 million or 4% of adults, and nearly 6 million or 8% of children have some form of allergy or food intolerance. Allergens can be potentially life threatening, so individuals with food allergies also serve as an added liability and the best way to minimize the risks for your operation is to develop a written plan of action.
