OMG :frightened That is so scarry. I wonder if the girls knew of the allergy, that would make a big difference on intent. I am one who hates any kind of hazing. I also hate ANY types of games that include food. eg: eat soda crackers and whistle, and the deadly eating many marshmallows. I do hope she is fine how scarry for her. As a mother of that age group I can say if anything happens to my "babies" it is still like they are two and you want to protect them against the big bad world.

Given the prevalence of food allergies this is pathetic --- especially peanut butter since that is the most well known allergen! Incredibly terrifying for the student.

I sincerely hope that the parents pursue criminal charges against the cheerleaders. Clearly, allergy education is required at Ogden High.

The equally scary part is that many people will read that she only had a minor reaction and think it is no big deal but reactions can be so much worse! Depends on so many factors.
