About Egg, Milk and Wheat Allergies:
For some people, egg (and egg products), milk (and milk products) and wheat (and wheat products) are a source of dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg, milk and/or wheat within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death.
If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
