What to advise our patients when it comes to precautionary labeling has been a topic of controversy. Guidance has been given by some to include items with cautionary statements in the diet and by others guidance is to exclude. This debate will highlight different perspectives and drive home the importance of shared decision making, consideration of the specific patient, specific co-factors and the allergen in question.

Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Analyze the data surrounding allergen content of foods with precautionary labeling
  • Consider individual factors pertaining to each patient in discussions surrounding the risks/benefits of eating foods with precautionary labeling
  • Describe the threshold for reaction and the co-factors
