This large Canadian survey on the prevalence of food allergies was launched in June 2008. This study provide a better estimate of the prevalence of common food allergies in Canada as well as a better understanding of the attitudes and behaviours of those living with these medical conditions.

"The Government of Canada is taking action to protect the health and well-being of Canadians with food allergies and celiac disease," said Minister Clement. "These new proposed labelling requirements will provide Canadians with the information they need to manage their own allergies, and give parents greater assurance about the food they give their children who may have allergies."

The improved regulations would require that manufacturers declare all food allergens, gluten sources and added sulphites on labels of prepackaged foods. The regulations would also detail exactly how these allergens, glutens and sulphites are to be listed on food labels.

This announcement is another step the Government of Canada has taken to improve and protect the health and well-being of Canadians through strengthened food and product safety standards.

All these baby steps every where. :banghead

Children who are subject to severe reactions should be trained to read labels and ask questions before eating foods.

Quote:
Health Canada is working to amend the Food and Drug Regulations to require that the most common foods and food ingredients, which have the potential to cause life-threatening or severe allergic reactions, be labelled when intentionally added to food. These changes would also require that the most common of these foods and food ingredients be always identified by their common names, which consumers can easily recognize on food labels.

:roll:

So, now I'm learning this stuff, every time I learn something new it makes me ask questions? The House of Commons has broke for the holidays. It will resume on January 10, 2011. What does this mean for the labelling issue?

I find this interesting.
