According to Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE), a food allergy is a serious and potentially life-threatening medical condition affecting up to 15 million Americans. One in every 13 children has a food allergy—that’s about 2 in every U.S. classroom. And every 3 minutes, a food allergy reaction sends someone to the emergency room.
Scott Riccio, senior vice president of education and advocacy at Food Allergy Research & Education (FARE) joined me in this 2016 interview to give the ABCs of food allergies and the work of FARE.
