Ramdin said that reaction to the new rules has been positive, “The guidelines are a good thing, because instead of staying home, people with food allergies will be more likely to go to restaurants if they know that the staff is making an effort to protect them. It is win-win for everyone.”

I'm not sure where this is from, somewhere in the states, it look's like some people are"getting it" :banana

the new regulations require the signs on walls and take-out menus, and must be big and bold enough to be viewed from five feet away. Ramdin said that new regulations require every restaurant that serves food for eat-in or take-out must also have someone on staff who is trained (by seeing a video) on how to respond to a customer’s request for allergy-safe food preparation.


WOW!! It does make good business though especially if it is city wide. Not only for those with allergies who live there but for tourists, instead of saying in a hotel and cooking for themselves better $$$ for the local economy if visitors (and locals) are able to eat out in multiple establishments safely.
WAY TO GO........couldn't find the city either.....but WAY TO GO! :lol:

...I looked up the health administers name and it comes back to Greater Boston Area

Isn't it ironic that you had to "trace that back" to find out where?
