I'd be curious to get Kwik's take on this. I saw a friend last year go into anaphalytic shock when she ate some fajitas at a Mexican joint. She specifically informed the waiter that she was allergic to avocados, then told him that even if the knife had previously touched an avocado it was no good, and still damn near died.

Is this a situation where an EpiPen would have been useful? My cousins have peanut allergies and they all carry EpiPens, but I am not sure how severe their allergies are.

Chinese cooking is almost all done with peanut or corn oil due to the high temperature needed. Also, liang mian should be served with a sesame sauce. And yeah I know it's callous but you people with nut allergies must have really done something bad in a former life. Perhaps you were all practicing homosexualists, and this is God's payback for your interest in nuts?

When I was an EMT, the rule of thumb was that if someone was anaphylactic, there were dead before a BLS truck could get them to the ED unless they had epi pens with them right there.

I have epipens due to food allergy. I rarely find it necessary to physically carry them, but when traveling overseas where I am not as sure about things, I carry them constantly.

I only took 2 or 3 bites before the "oh shit" radar kicked in... and even then I was crippled for about 8 hours. Anything more than that I would have definitely shot that bitch up.

That is, in fact, a favorite of Chinese cooks.

I can eat cooked apples but need an epi-pen if in the vicinity of raw ones. same for cherries, kiwi and plums. my aunt went into shock after eating red snapper (they had used the same pan for a lobster apetizer)

Lesbananas most likely. Apparently you were an all around deviant in your previous lives, though so hot in at least one of them.

I'm keeping my eye on you. I know about the plan, I read the Italy/Prato article.

The most painful thing about eating good Chinese food is the wait. It feels like Star Wars kid doing his crazy sh!t in my stomach.

I had no idea that just using the same pan or a previously used knife could set off a food allergy.

The average Orthodox Jew seems to take far more responsibility and show more concern for how their restaurant meals are prepared than most of the people I know with life-threatening alergies. Strange.
