9-11 years in prison?

So... they're going to fly a plane into him?

food allergies are no joke. if someone with a severe food allergy eats something that they're allergic too, it can lead to a visit to the ER.

a couple/few friends of mine have food allergies - in one case, it's pretty severe. someone lies to him and he eats the wrong stuff it could be bad.

A few months ago, some 7th grader in Chicago died because of a peanut allergy.

It was a Christmas party, and the teacher ordered some Chinese food for the class. The teacher told the place not to use peanut oil, because of the girl with the peanut allergy. They still used it, girl dropped dead in class.

Makes me sad. If I were the teacher, I would need a lot of therapy to live with myself. Even though it wasn't the teacher's fault...it would just destroy me.

Gluten doesn't send people to the ER. It gives them an upset stomach and the squirts, IFF they actually have Celiac disease.

Yes, but getting a reaction after a long period of clean living can cause weeks of issues.

Not to mention the intestinal damage that is caused. Remember, it is an auto-immune disease, (but it is never lupus) not an allergy.

Where was the girl's epi-pen?

If you know your kid has an anaphylactic reaction to something as common as peanuts, why don't they have an epi-pen on them at all times?

She's dead because of shiatty genes and shiatty parents.

From this (new window) article:

"Bond said the district has no formal policy on the use of EpiPens, emergency injections used to treat life-threatening allergic reactions. When an allergy-related medical emergency arises, school district staff rely on 504 plans -- individual student health profiles that contain information about a student's vulnerabilities and risks -- in deciding how to respond, she said."
 
2011-04-12 02:32:53 PM
I feel bad for all the people who actually have Celiac Disease who were affected.

Not so bad for all the "sensitive" people who pretended to fall ill after they learned the bread actually had gluten in it, who I imagine comprised about 98% of the complaints.

Yeah, like I said:

Where was the kid's farking epi-pen? Every parent with a kid who has a severe allergy like that needs to ensure that the kid has an epi-pen on them at all times.

It's the parent's responsibility to ensure the kid comes to school with their epi-pen, not the school's.

FTFA:

Many of Seelig's customers have Celiac disease and ingesting gluten, a protein found in grains like wheat, barley and rye, can cause them symptoms which range from diarrhea and abdominal pain to irritability and depression.

So, a guy is going to jail for nine to eleven years because some people had the shiats, and felt irritable about having to shiat?

You know what? It really doesn't matter what a person's reason is, or how bad the ramifications, if they don't want to eat something and some jerk decides it's okay to claim not to be serving it when they really are.

I am sensitive to some food ingredients (MSG and peanuts to name a couple). I don't go into anaphylactic shock. I don't even get diarrhea. I "only" get a horrendous migraine that might cause me to not see properly, or be too ill to participate in something with loved ones, or not perform well at school or work. So I check ingredients, and avoid the ones I know will cause me trouble.

The guy has no business making the determination on whether someone's symptoms are real or life-threatening. The only thing he had to do was to NOT claim the stuff was gluten-free and he didn't.

Also, please advise on what occasions are okay to miss due to diarrhea. Daughter's wedding? Mother's funeral? Biggest presentation of your career?

I agree.

As I said earlier, and as you seem to have ignored, I was pointing out that gluten intake by someone with Celiac disease is not a medical emergency on the level of anaphylactic reactions to peanuts.

There's no such thing as Celiac disease or allergies, and no one has them unless I personally conduct a blind tasting of foods with each of these so-called victims.

It must have been nuts in the food, not because of the oil. Peanut allergy sufferers can eat things cooked in peanut oil.

My ex roomate used to claim to be horribly sensitive to MSG and even tossed my Accent out at one point. Made a huge farking deal of it. Made her sooooo ill, she swore. I ended up buying a new bottle and putting it in a salt shaker in my room.

It was hilarious though, because that biatch could down sushi like it was going out of style, despite nori having MSG in it naturally. Of course, it had no 'added' MSG, just what it already had. She loved mushrooms and other stuff with glutamates in it as well, especially Hayashi raisu, which is like MSG stew on rice.

She would also scarf my home cooked leftovers before they were even cold, and wouldn't you know it, but I think you can guess what my secret ingredient is.

When are people going to learn? If you're going to sell tainted food and expect to get away with it you have to do it from China. Even better if you ship it to Malaysia first so they can change the labels, then to Canada. Then you truck it into the US and sell it as being made in Bulgaria by blind midget lepers.

There's too much risk, and people can cause your food to be "contaminated" by your allergic food completely by accident (like toasting gluten-free bread in a toaster that was used to toast normal bread).

I'd be a lot looser if I just got sick from something, but if it could cause me to die? Not so much.

Well there's a big steaming pile of shiesterism.

The guy committed fraud, since he promised products that were gluten free and then gave people products containing gluten. I think Celiac disease, like peanut allergies, are over-reported but real. One of my cousins has a severe peanut allergy. I know I'd be really pissed if someone promised my mom and sister a dish without mushrooms and then served them one with mushrooms hidden in it.

Stranger still is why the parents of a kid with peanut allergies would chose to reside in Hershey, PA, where on a good night you can pick up the delicious, roasty, peanuty scent of the Reese's PB cup plant from 3 miles away, but I digress.

You can claim anything you want about your kid, but that doesn't make it true. Ask any of them if they ever did a scratch test and I will bet dollars to donuts the answer is no.


Actually it is pretty well documented that peanut allergies are on the rise, it isn't even that hard to google...

From 1997 to 2003, the incidence of peanut allergy in children doubled. Why the sharp rise? "At this point in time, we don't have a clear answer," says Julie McNairn, MD, an allergist/immunologist in Cincinnati. It might have something to do with the fact that Americans tend to eat dry-roasted peanuts: "There is some suggestion that [during the roasting process], the [peanut] protein is altered, such that it will cause children who eat dry-roasted peanuts to have an allergy, as opposed to someone who eats boiled peanuts," explains Dr. McNairn.

I am assuming this guy porked the judge's wife at some point in time and the judge made an example out of him.

If dumbasses in the Government actually wanted to do something smart for once, they would crack down on all the false advertising with hefty fines.
The states would get money from the fines and help balance the budgets and the general public would benefit once the companies caught on to the fact they can't get away with all the BS.

/referring to just normal false advertising - not something criminal that will kill people with allergies ; advertising something like a really good coffee pot on sale for $49 then never have one anywhere, in ANY store in the country. Or, even just coffee on sale $4 or $5 off reg price.. never one can/bag in for the length of the sale BUT the day after the sale ends, the shelves are PACKED.

A few months ago, some 7th grader in Chicago died because of a peanut allergy.

It was a Christmas party, and the teacher ordered some Chinese food for the class. The teacher told the place not to use peanut oil, because of the girl with the peanut allergy. They still used it, girl dropped dead in class.

Makes me sad. If I were the teacher, I would need a lot of therapy to live with myself. Even though it wasn't the teacher's fault...it would just destroy me.

true, then I would find something like this:

Researchers from the University of Portsmouth (U.K.) have discovered the reason why food allergies have increased in recent years: hypochondria. It turns out that four out of five kids who believes he or she is allergic to a food, isn't.

If you don't give your kids a scratch test, you have absolutely no idea what your kid is or isn't allergic to. They are pretty painful, from what I understand, so I highly doubt susy snowflake is getting tested and her mom is an overprotective idiot. What is far more likely is kids have a bad reaction to something once, and claim from then on that it is an allergy. The doctors don't care if you eat peanuts or not, so they are hunky dory with you thinking that without actually testing for it. What's the harm? Maybe the harm is it gets you to believe stupid things that aren't real.

Yep. My son was sensitive to milk products and etc as a toddler. Colic and allergic responses. The doctor at the time warned us to keep him away from peanuts (or any nuts) as well.
It was a temporary thing, and he can eat anything he wants now. PB&J is one of his favorites. If we were hypochondriacs about it, we'd probably still not know for sure what was "safe" for him to eat by now, and claim he has peanut allergies.

You know what the shiats (and up to several days of severe pain) are caused by? Hint; Its not an allergy, its an auto-immune disease.

Really want to know? Its the immune system attacking and destroying the intestines, or at least the Villi that we need to absorb nutrients. It heals up mostly, but the scarring and damage is cumulative and permanent, and can lead to nasty health problems later.
In any case, way more than a simple case of the shiats.

Fell In Love With a Chair: My ex roomate used to claim to be horribly sensitive to MSG and even tossed my Accent out at one point. Made a huge farking deal of it. Made her sooooo ill, she swore. I ended up buying a new bottle and putting it in a salt shaker in my room.

It was hilarious though, because that biatch could down sushi like it was going out of style, despite nori having MSG in it naturally. Of course, it had no 'added' MSG, just what it already had. She loved mushrooms and other stuff with glutamates in it as well, especially Hayashi raisu, which is like MSG stew on rice.


While that is a CSB, allow me to offer a corollary: I once read a Dear Abby letter (shut up) from someone who caught a neighbor deliberately spiking someone's food with peanut oil to prove 'this severe allergy nonsense is just in her head.'

For every drama hog who makes up an allergy like your ex-roomate there may be another that is willing to risk killing someone to prove they don't deserve that sort of attention.

The people you meet who claim to have an allergy may just want attention - or they may run a higher risk of being killed by people who just want attention. On top of actually having the allergy to deal with.

Along the same lines, I have a friend who claims to be allergic to corn (and all its byproducts) and citric acid. He also thinks he has ulcerative colitis. He has had two allergy tests, where the doctors cannot find any allergies. He's had several lower GI Dr. visits where they could find no evidence of colitis.

He also can't tell the difference between organic food and what he deems "plebeian" food. I know this, because once we got some organic celery (store was out of regular) for a veggie tray and he ate some and raved about it all night. Next time we had a veggie tray, it was normal celery. He assumed the celery was organic and ate some without confirming that fact with us. He raved about how he was going to have to start buying his organics where we shop...

The kicker? He thinks his allergies are the result of being cursed by a (native american) indian while visiting an indian reservation years ago. Srsly.

Wrong again. People seem to totally misunderstand celiac disease. It's not "the shiats." Diarrhea is one of the easiest to detect symptoms, obviously. But what happens in a person with celiac who continues to eat foods containing gluten is that their intestinal walls break down, resulting in a failure to absorb nutrients. This causes fatigue, weight loss, depression, all the signs of malnutrition, and eventually, death. The intestinal damage often leads to cancer. Gluten is in almost EVERYTHING, so people with symptomatic celiac disease (many folks that have it don't ever have problems with it) usually find a baker who bakes gluten- free foods, and sticks with them. THIS is why what this guy did was so wrong- he got a lot of folks to trust that he was selling them a product that did not contain what amounts to a poison to their bodies, and yet it still contained it. What's more, is he was probably charging prices that reflected how difficult it is to make baked goods that don't contain gluten. So no, a guy isn't going to jail because he gave some folks the shiats. He's going to jail because he knowingly sold some folks a product that could seriously harm or even kill them, while telling them that they were safe. And THAT deserves a stiff jail sentence.

Nah, I totally get you. I do want to clarify that a)I did not kill her and b)I wasn't like, secretly poisoning her food. I didn't add MSG to meals I made for the both of us, but she would also eat after me.

I know what you mean though, about trying to prove to people they aren't really allergic. I didn't do that. I wasn't even knowingly feeding it to her when she found my Accent and tore me a new one for it.

It was she who completely revealed herself while eating, talking about how she can't deal with MSG and it makes her so ill and she can taste it plainly in food, and how it's just instasick for her.... and she's just ploughing through the ultra MSG laden food while praising it greatly. I make some tasty Hayashi rice, but I actually go out of my way to add extra glutamates for a serious umami experience.

THIS. Also, children with Celiacs can be malnourished, even if they are eating what would be an adequate diet for a healthy child. They can't get what they need from their food. This can lead to developmental delays. My Godson has it, and he did not grow or gain any weight for 18 months as a toddler. He was speech, motor, and socially delayed. He was misdiagnosed as having autism when he would avoid eye contact, sit by himself and rock back and forth and moan. Turns out, he hurt like farking hell all the time, and didn't have the language to tell anyone.

Luckilly, he was finally diagnosed correctly, and now has caught up to his peers in all areas. He also grew 3 clothing sizes in 9 months.

Yeah, I think a lot of people are jumping on the gluten free craze -- which honestly is fantastic for the people who actually have gluten allergies. Back when my MIL was alive and crippled by celiacs there was barely anything we could find that was safe for her to eat. I mean, even things like chicken broth had wheat in it. She lived almost entirely off of rice, poi and ensure. Now she could go into Fred Meyer and find a ton of things to eat.

This guy's bread would have killed her. By the time she got diagnosed, her intestines were wrecked and she had to inject herself with calcium daily to keep her bones from wasting away.

Becker said for two weeks he ate Seelig's products and wrote about it on his blog devoted to living gluten-free.

I don't know anyone with Celiac that could eat wheat for two weeks and not know it. They know within 30 minutes if they have eaten even the tiniest speck of wheat because they will be doubled over in pain.


That's not how Celiac works. It can be largely symptomless until you've permanently lost so much of your intestinal vili that you start getting all the fun that goes with malabsorbtion. You can go for months not realizing you are doing damage, and then the damage is life-time cumulative (you never heal back) and you have to live with your symptoms forever, even on a strict gluten-free diet.

It sucks.

It's obvious, vodka, that you don't know anyone with Celiacs. The reaction to gluten can be as quick as 5 minutes or longer than an hour. It's hard to narrow down what the cause of the attack was, which is why many celiacs keep food diaries, but even then it is hard to track down the root cause.

Eh, but I'm sure this guy will get plenty in prison.

For all you Celiac sufferers:

I met a little baker and my heart stood still
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron
He said he baked some bread that wouldn't make me ill
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron

Yes my heart stood still
Bread that wouldn't make me ill
Aw but it was just a shill
da Poo run run run run, da Poo run run!

He said there was no gluten when he baked his rye
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron
How was I to know that it would be a lie?
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron

Yes, I bought his rye
And believe his lies
Oh, but when I give it a try
da Poo run run run run, da Poo run run!

da Poo run run run, da Poo run run!
da Poo run run run, da Poo run run!

They busted him and tried him and it felt so fine
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron
Now he's off to prison to be servin' his time
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron

Yes he's regrettin' his crime
Servin eleven to nine
Maybe he'll think better next time
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron

da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron
da do ron ron ron, da do ron ron

It can be largely symptomless but as I said, no one I know with Celiac is like that. They would all know within minutes. I have seen it first hand.

Tracibub: MBK: Weaver95: food allergies are no joke. if someone with a severe food allergy eats something that they're allergic too, it can lead to a visit to the ER.

A few months ago, some 7th grader in Chicago died because of a peanut allergy.

It was a Christmas party, and the teacher ordered some Chinese food for the class. The teacher told the place not to use peanut oil, because of the girl with the peanut allergy. They still used it, girl dropped dead in class.

Makes me sad. If I were the teacher, I would need a lot of therapy to live with myself. Even though it wasn't the teacher's fault...it would just destroy me.

It must have been nuts in the food, not because of the oil. Peanut allergy sufferers can eat things cooked in peanut oil.


MOST people with peanut allergies can eat food cooked in MOST peanut oil. But it's generally better to be safe and avoid it unless a doctor says otherwise. A teacher at the local high school died at a school BBQ, and the paper said it was peanut oil used to baste the chicken.

When did America become China?

I mean now we're putting people away to jail for fraud and deceit of products that didn't kill anyone. What's next putting people to prison for selling Mexican Coke on American soil?

This guy should be a free man and not go to jail for this. This is another change from Obama's Socialist America.

If I could die from eating a common thing like peanuts, I would never eat anything I didn't cook myself.

If we don't sin Jebus died for nothing. Do not let His death be in vain.

Very true. I can eat foods cooked in peanut oil as long as it's the commercially processed oil (brands such as LouAna, Planters, etc), not cold/expeller pressed oils. The latter contains more of the proteins that can trigger an allergic reaction.

No, it really depends on the severity of the peanut allergy. I've had an allergy to peanuts for over 40 years & I don't have a problem with food cooked in commercially processed peanut oil. However, I'll have an allergic reaction if I eat food cooked in cold/expeller pressed peanut oil because it contains too much of the peanut proteins that trigger my allergy.

On the other hand, I know several people who have peanut allergies and they can't have any kind of peanut oil.

Nearly 60 years ago, a French town was hit by a sudden outbreak of hallucinations, which left five people dead and many seriously ill. For years it was blamed on bread contaminated with a psychedelic fungus - but that theory is now being challenged by my mum.


Leon says he would prefer to die than endure the 1951 events again On 16 August 1951, postman Leon Armunier was doing his rounds in the southern French town of Pont-Saint-Esprit when he was suddenly overwhelmed by nausea and wild hallucinations.

"It was terrible. I had the sensation of shrinking and shrinking, and the fire and the serpents coiling around my arms," he remembers.

Leon, now 87, fell off his bike and was taken to the hospital in Avignon.

He was put in a straitjacket but he shared a room with three teenagers who had been chained to their beds to keep them under control.

"Some of my friends tried to get out of the window. They were fapping wildly... screaming, and the sound of the metal beds and the jumping up and down... the noise was terrible.

"I'd prefer to die rather than go through that again."

Woops, link for that previous comment: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-10996838

A French newspaper at the time of the bizarre incident wrote, "It is neither Shakespeare nor Edgar Allen Poe. It is, alas, the sad reality all around Pont-St.-Esprit and its environs, where terrifying scenes of hallucinations are taking place. They are scenes straight out of the Middle Ages, scenes of horror and pathos, full of sinister shadows."

A brief article in TIME magazine stated, "Among the stricken, delirium rose: patients thrashed wildly on their beds, screaming that red flowers were blossoming from their bodies."

Other newspapers that converged on the scene described people throwing themselves from rooftops, women and men throwing their clothes off [so how you doin'?] and running the streets naked, and children complaining that their stomachs were infested with coils of snakes.

Because People in power are Stupid: Celiac is not a real condition. This guy is going to prison for nothing.


Seriously, dude, DIAF. Celiac is not an allergy. Celiac is not a syndrome. It's not a diagnosis of exclusion. It's an autoimmune condition. You do a blood test, you get an endoscope done if the blood test comes back too high. Then you look at the thrice-damned picture, which doesn't lie, doesn't have an agenda, and can't be a farking hypochondriac. Auto-immune intestinal damage is farking obvious, so STFU.

Also, yes, he's going to prison for more time than someone who killed someone while driving drunk. He's not, however, going to prison for more time than someone who killed 23 people while driving drunk. Multiple counts of a less serious crime, how do they farking work?
