AllerNote products are food allergy warning alerts designed to provide food service workers with a heightened awareness of the seriousness of your allergy- affording you peace of mind so you can enjoy eating away from home. Two types of AllerNote products are available: AllerNote notes and AllerNote Labels, both available blank for you to fill in your particular allergy. The act of handing over an AllerNote will go one step further in assuring that your explanation will be "taken in hand" and acted upon rather than being ignored. We've found them to be very effective.
AllerNote notes are transferable sticky notes that can be attached, removed and attached again without leaving any residue. They are designed to be given to your server as you explain your allergy issue. The AllerNote is an added reminder to your server and other food service workers of your food preparation needs and health concerns. There are 50 AllerNote notes in each matchbook type pad.
AllerNote Labels are semi-permanent, self-adhesive labels that are not easily removed; they are designed for lunch-boxes, notebooks, laptop covers, tumblers and anywhere else where it would be appropriate to draw attention to your allergy issue.

Any food has the potential to cause an allergic reaction in a person – a response from the immune system treating the food as something to be fought instead of something to be digested. The most common food allergies are to peanuts/tree nuts, seafood (shellfish/fish), dairy, eggs, soy, or wheat, but some other allergies include strawberries, sesame seeds, garlic or rice. Food allergies differ from food intolerances. An allergy is a response of the immune system, and reactions usually occur within an hour. An intolerance is an inability or difficulty with digestion, and responses usually occur an hour to a few days later. Most food allergies develop in childhood when the food is first introduced into the diet, but can disappear as the child grows, but this is not the case for everyone. Reactions run the gambit from swelling, watery eyes, wheezing, or hives to nausea, mood swings or even the most severe allergic reaction - anaphylaxis, which can result in death if not given immediate medical attention. Alerting restaurant staff of your particular allergy with AllerNote notes (in addition to providing a full explanation of your allergy issue) can help them to focus on the fact that your meal must be free from your allergen. Our Generic AllerNote does not limit the user to a food allergy. You can write in “penicillin” or “latex” or whatever in the space at the bottom of the AllerNote, and hand it over in a medical office or hospital setting. The Generic AllerNote is designed to be used by anyone, in any setting, where contact of some type or kind with a substance will cause an adverse reaction.
