Seafood Allergy Resources

Although we've found that having a seafood allergy does not seem to be as common where we live or amongst the people we know, it has been nice to find helpful resources online.

We're impressed that our government recognizes that seafood allergies are one of the nine most common food allergies (Allergic Living declares that it is the most common one in Canada) and that they are committed to helping make food safety a priority through accurate labelling and proposed future legislation.  For more information on seafood allergies, you can check out Health Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

Here are other sites that may be of interest to seafood-allergy sufferers:
Some of these sites go into further details on how to travel safely with food allergies and how to recognize seafood in other languages, so when the day comes that we get to travel afar, these will be useful articles for us to read as well.
