EVERY THURSDAY evening, from 8.30 to 9.30pm, we run an Allergy Hour (#allergyhour) on Twitter – a forum for allergy people and parents to ask questions, rant, rave, swap tips, share recipes. Last night the folks at the Anaphylaxis Campaign kindly offered up one of their experts to answer specific questions on the new EU allergen labelling laws. Today they’ve put together a handy FAQ guide to deal with some of the issues that came up. See here for more. It covers everything from how the laws will be enforced to where businesses can get advice.
Next week (Thursday 18 December) we will have the Food Standards Agency’s senior scientific officer Chun-Han Chan dropping in on #allergyhour to answer any more questions that come up surrounding the new regulations and their implementation. If you’re on Twitter, just tweet your questions from 8.30pm next Thursday using the hashtag #allergyhour and join the rumble.
