More than 15 million Americans, including 3 million children, have a food allergy, which is the leading cause of anaphylaxis (a serious allergic reaction that is rapid in onset and may cause death) outside the hospital setting and results in 50,000 to 125,000 emergency room visits each year, depending on the source. Eight foods account for 90% of all allergic reactions in the U.S.: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, soy, fish, and shellfish.
