A friend suffers with a walnut allergy has done all her life its the only allergy she has. Carries her pen and tablets at all times.
Dining out last week she asked the waitress if there were any walnuts in the dish she was having, the waitress went and checked with the chef, the answer no definitely not , so guess what, very soon her face swells up like a balloon and they went to local hospital in case her throat seized up luckily it didn’t. She is still debating whether to take it further re the restaurant and the chef’s denial on walnuts. I saw her three days later and her face was still swollen up. We said yes definitely see the owner .
Re our friend and her allergy attack I was really surprised on asking her if she had spoken to the owner of restaurant re the chef’s denial of walnuts in a meal, no she said, she had decided not to pursue it any further.
