AllerNotes Help Take Food Allergies Off the Table
Date:11/30/2007

New product gives peace of mind to those living with food allergies

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Nov. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Scientists estimate that 12 million Americans suffer from food allergies. For most, it means avoiding certain foods entirely, or face the risk of suffering severe or even fatal reactions.

Now those with food allergies can find peace of mind by using AllerNotes, which are pre-printed, re-positional Post-It(R) notes that help alert others to an allergy issue.

"We find AllerNotes to be extremely helpful in the restaurant setting," explains Julius Cohn, President and CEO of Out with Allergies, LLC, and founder of AllerNotes. "Once you explain your food allergy to the wait staff, you hand them an AllerNote to affix to your order to ensure that those preparing the meal get the message about your allergy issue."

Cohn also adds that regardless of where someone is eating -- at a restaurant, a friend's house or any place away from home -- it's imperative that the allergy sufferer FULLY inform the wait staff or host or hostess of their allergy issue. In addition, it is the allergy sufferer's responsibility to inquire whether or not the food they are interested in eating has ingredients to which they may be sensitive.

"A product like AllerNotes, when handed to a waiter, helps ensure that what you are saying is getting across," says Cohn. "With the proper degree of care and caution, having an allergy should not prevent you from eating out."

In fact, AllerNotes were born out of an incident at a restaurant where a young man with a severe nut allergy was served a dish that included the allergen despite a lengthy conversation with the waitress about his need for a nut-free meal. While the waitress did not purposely ignore the information, it was apparent she became too busy to pass the appropriate information along to the kitchen staff.

"Had there been a visible reminder for the waitress, like an AllerNote, the situation could have easily been avoided," emphasizes Cohn. "We say, 'hand an AllerNote to your waiter, it may save a life.'"

AllerNotes come in convenient, multi-sheet pads and are pre-printed with the following options:

-- Nut Allergy

-- Shellfish Allergy

-- Dairy Allergy

-- Egg Allergy

-- Wheat Allergy

-- Soy Allergy

-- Fish Allergy

-- Write-in (generic) for all other allergies

-- AllerNote Labels (for lunch boxes, composition notebooks, etc.)

AllerNotes are also available in a generic (write-in) form where a user can write in a specific allergy such as latex, penicillin, garlic, etc.

"In addition to being a valuable tool to hand to a waiter, we also believe that AllerNotes can be used to alert your child's teacher, mark your child's school records, hand to the daycare provider, or attach to your driver's license. Most importantly, we've designed these food allergy warning notes to be easily carried in a purse or wallet," suggests Cohn. "AllerNotes can also be used subtly to prevent any embarrassment to the person with the allergy."

In addition to the re-positional notes, the company also offers AllerNote labels, semi-permanent stickers that easily affix to lunch boxes, notebooks, laptops, daycare or medical records -- any place appropriate for bringing attention to an allergy issue.
