    NUT Allergies........and Resort's obligations.

    Someone posted on another forum...asking about the Holiday Inn's "nut policy"

    Apparently the poster's child has a nut allergy and this person was asking about folks' experiences with the nut policy at the resort.

    I wonder, what can a resort do to keep "nuts out?"

    We've been on numerous flights where there is a person with a nut allergy. The airline gate agents have made announcements about the importance of not bringing any nuts onto the flights.

    How would a resort handle this?

    or

    Really, is this a situation that a resort has to address?

    addendum.....the person just updated the question. She is mostly concerned about food cross contamination.

    Good question. I would think it would be difficult to keep a resort nut free. It’s such a common problem but many of us (since we are not affected) don’t give it much thought. I wonder if there are any resorts that are agreeable to going nut free.

    I would think the poster should contact the resort directly. Are they eating all their meals there-an AI? How do they normally handle dinners out?

    Some people have severe nut allergies as Andrea pointed out about the flights(I've seen it too) and all they have to do it smell it to have an life threatening issue. Some are only allergic to specific ones-I've seen it all in my school-who can't have peanuts, who can't have tree nuts, etc. We had one kid in the school who had to eat lunch in the nurses office everyday.

    yes, the person in the original posting said that she/he contacted the resort but did not get a reply.

    I recommend that they call instead of email.

    I don't think a resort can do much.

    If the allergy is that severe I'm sure the mom is used to having to prepare food or be very specific in restaurants, etc.
