Investigation into Food Allergy Death Begins

Still wondering if it's time to refresh your training of the care givers to your children?

Here are excerpts from a sad article from ABC News Australia regarding a boy that died - apparently of a reaction to peanuts.

"Four-year-old Alex Baptist, from the Melbourne suburb of Mentone, suffered an allergy to peanuts.

He died at his kindergarten in September 2004 after eating morning tea.

The court has heard he died of symptoms consistent to a severe food allergy....

In evidence, Alex's mother Martha Baptist said a kindergarten staff member visited her at home to explain she accidentally jabbed herself with a life saving dose of adrenalin she tried to give to Alex when he became ill."
