Another Allergy Friendly State!

Posted 12.11.08 | Nutrition Specialist

Back in May you might have seen my colleague’s entry on allergy legislation that would require restaurants in the state of Massachusetts to notify people of possible allergens in their food while dining out. New Hampshire is the next state to jump on this allergy-free bandwagon.

Sen. Lou D’Allesandro (D-NH) is in the process of drafting a bill to make the state’s restaurants a bit more allergy friendly.

The bill would require all restaurants to “prominently display a poster about food allergy awareness in the staff area and to include on all menus a notice of the customer’s obligation to inform the server about any food allergies,” according to an article on

Sen. D’Allesandro’s bill is very similar to the Massachusetts bill, which was passed in the Massachusetts Senate in May and is now under consideration in the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

I am very excited about the continued focus on food allergies by government officials and will keep you posted on how this bill progresses!
