Just plain scary!

A new study published in Clinical & Experimental Allergy reveals that there is no association between a restaurant worker's knowledge of food allergy and his or her confidence in being able to provide a safe meal to a food allergic customer.

from that link: :frightened :freak :frightened One in five staff members thought that an allergic customer consuming a small amount of allergen would be safe, as would removing the allergen from a finished meal (e.g. picking the nuts off a pre-prepared desert would render it safe for a nut-allergic customer to eat).

It would be interesting to see the questions from that study and to ask at our few restaurants. Luckily, some of my family work at one of the restaurants so I'll start by asking them.
