Food allergy reactions can range from mild to deadly. And because certain allergy-triggering ingredients can turn up in foods you never dreamed of--nuts and eggs are common--the Food Allergy Network suggests the following tips for safe eating:
* To minimize risks, cook allergy-free foods that can be enjoyed by everyone.
* Always read labels. Ingredients can change unexpectedly from one month to the next. If the food or candy does not have an ingredient list, do not eat it.
