Interesting Fact - Allergies

Around 5000 people need treatment in hospital for severe allergic reactions each year in the UK.

(Sadly some cases are fatal, causing an average of 10 deaths annually.

According to the European Academy of Allergy, food allergies affect more than 17 million people across Europe.

It reminds me of the story in the UK, about the supermarket that had to remove packets of nuts from their shelves, because they didn't warn people that the packet contained nuts.)
