About Milk and Tree Nut Allergies:
For some people, milk (and milk products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Due to modern food manufacturing methods, milk products may not “look” or “sound” like milk. Some examples of foods with milk proteins include artificial butter or cheese flavor; casein or caseinates; curds; ghee; hydrolysates; lactalbumin and lactalbumin phosphate; lactose, lactoglobulin, lactoferrin and lactulose; and finally, rennet (originally, ground calves’ stomach but more often now, by-products of genetically engineered bacteria, mold or yeast).

For others, Groundnuts (such as peanuts) and Tree Nuts (such as almonds, coconuts, pistachio and walnuts) are a source of dangerous, urgent and potentially deadly, allergic reactions requiring immediate medical intervention. Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to almonds or other tree nuts 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.

About Unpasteurized Milk Hazards:
Raw (i.e., unpasteurized) milk can harbor dangerous microorganisms that can pose serious health risks to anyone who consumes it. Unpasteurized or improperly pasteurized milk can carry dangerous bacteria such as E. coli, Listeria and Salmonella. These pathogens are responsible for causing the majority of all food borne illnesses typically seen in the developed world.

Raw milk and foods made from raw milk (including soft cheeses and yogurts) can seriously sicken anyone who consumes them. Bacteria in raw milk can be especially dangerous to those with weakened immune systems, older adults, pregnant women and kids. US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (“CDC”) analysis has determined that children and teenagers are especially susceptible to raw milk-based food borne illnesses.
