While the current laws for food and safety have common allergies in mind when it comes to deciding how an ingredient panel should be laid out, there is not enough care put forth for people with uncommon allergies. Companies should be required to list every ingredient used in the prep and cooking process, rather than hiding things under the guise of 'spices' or 'natural flavors '. That wording could conceal a very deadly medical emergency for someone who is unsuspecting. 

 

While I, as someone with a deadly and very uncommon allergy, do believe that we must do our due diligence to protect ourselves when it comes to the food we eat, I also firmly and wholeheartedly believe that the companies making our food should have more responsibility put on them. I can't count the amount of times I've read an ingredient list, saw that it looked clear, and only after a trip to the emergency room, did i learn that my allergen was hidden under 'spices' or 'natural flavors '.

 

Making ingredient lists more detailed will not only allow for people to enjoy the food they eat, but will also help save on unnecessary medical expenses that could have been avoided. So it is through this petition that I am asking you to take a stand and help make this change happen.
