Because peanut allergies can be extremely dangerous (and even life threatening) to a very small percentage of the population, Amy's never uses peanut or peanut products in our food, ever.
Peanut allergy affects approximately 1.5 million people in the United States. As the most common cause of life-threatening allergic reactions (anaphylaxis), peanut allergies account for 80 percent of fatal or near-fatal allergic reactions each year. You can reduce your risk of having an allergic reaction to peanuts by knowing as much as you can about peanut allergy and how to avoid peanut-containing products.
If you have any reaction to peanuts, tell your doctor about it, no matter how mild the reaction may have been. Tests can help diagnose peanut allergy, so you can take steps to avoid future and potentially worse reactions.
