Serious food allergies are reaching a tipping point - approximately 8% of children in the United States have been diagnosed with a serious food allergy and even worse, 25% of all serious allergy incidents involve children who had not been previously diagnosed as having an anaphylactic allergy.
Precautions taken for these children such as nut-free lunch tables is a start - but it is time for our society to move to the next level: ubiquitous availability of allergy emergency supplies. With anaphylaxis, seconds count. A misplaced auto-injector, an unavailable nurse or a slow ambulance can have deadly results.
At The Original Allergy Emergency Kit™, our vision is for the Good Samaritan - that street-smart lunch lady, parent, teacher or fellow student - to have the supplies necessary to save a life.
