Laws That Make Eating Out Safer for Those With Food Allergies
Restaurants in Massachusetts have become a bit safer for food-allergic guests, thanks to a state law that went into effect in April. All restaurants in the state are now required to display information about food allergies in their kitchens and staff must be trained on the subject. In addition, menus must remind guests to inform wait staff of any food-allergy issues. Restaurants can be designated Food Allergy Friendly if they voluntarily create a binder listing all ingredients in every menu item.
