Food Allergies

Food allergies are caused by the immune system's abnormal response to a certain food. While some food allergies are mild, others can be life-threatening or even deadly. Tree nuts and peanuts can lead to anaphylaxis. Compared to any other food allergen, nut allergies are the leading cause of death.

The foods that most often trigger allergic reactions include:

  • Peanuts
  • Tree nuts
  • Fish
  • Shrimp
  • Lobster
  • Crab
  • Eggs
  • Milk

For those with serious food allergies, carrying an EpiPenĀ® may be necessary.
