LITTLE NUTS... EXTREMELY HARMFUL!
We are all a little nuts but did you know that they could be extremely harmful. As Kroger recalls pies, it makes us reflect on what we use daily. As a person without a nut allergy, I would never consider the harmful effects of exposure.
However, I do know that exposure to one house years ago that I had a reaction that made me think that I was having a stroke. I began to swell, my throat to close and one side of my face began to sag. I scared my family and was immediately rushed to ER. The cause was never known but it was from a house that contained high levels of black mold. I was fortunate to be treated and released. I was lucky.
As I have a family member with extreme allergies to nut exposure, it makes you think twice. Even exposure to the dust particles that come from opening a bag of shelled nuts or foods that contain or were manufactured in the area of nuts can be deadly.
If you are unsure of whether you or a loved one are allergic, consider getting tested. The continued knowledge of everyone, could really save a life. Visit this page to learn more about Kroger's Pie Recall.
