“If I give an allergic child something they cannot eat then I know that they won’t be able to make it to school the next day.”
The national food industry association, Livsmedelsföretagen, acknowledges the problem.
“I myself have a daughter who is extremely allergic to nuts,” said the groups CEO, Marie Söderqvist.
“So this should not happen. We should have the right safeguards in place when it comes to labeling.”
