In the Feb/Mar 2006 newsletter issued by FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network - U.S.), an article entitled "EU Strengthens Allergen Labeling" indicates the following 12 designated allergens must appear on labels beginning Nov 2005:

peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, crustaceans, fish, sesame seeds, gluten, soy, celery, mustard, sulfur dioxide and sulfites.

(that counts as 13 to me, but I guess sulfur dioxide and sulfites are related)

I was very interested to see mustard (& celery) included in this list. My son has multiple food allergies, including some of the above + mustard, but I didn't realise mustard was a "common" allergen in parts of the world.

I'm not sure if this article (or others) can be read on-line; however, if interested, you can check www.foodallergy.org

I didn't realize that celery was a major allergy! I can't have raw celergy but I'm okay with cooked.
