About Egg Allergies:
For some people, foods made from egg (or egg ingredients) may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from these products. Examples of foods with hidden egg include ingredients such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These components (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to egg ingredients 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. You can learn more about food allergies from the US National Institutes of Health (“NIH”) at http://1.usa.gov/IZWUlm.
