Owen's Law - Food Standards Agency
The UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has backed calls for “Owen’s Law”, which would force restaurants to publish allergy information on their menus.
Professor Susan Jebb, Food Standards Agency "I will write to ministers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. The board would like to see them take this forward on a four-country basis.
In today’s discussions, it was clear that the board feel that we should set an expectation that food businesses like coffee shops and restaurants provide allergen information in writing as well as having a conversation. To maximise the likelihood of this happening, written information should be a legal requirement, rather than just guidance."
Allergy Menu will ensure you meet the new legislation, and also ensure that your allergy information is live and accurate.
We, his family, are calling for a change in the law surrounding how allergy information is displayed and given in restaurants in the UK. We hope that a simple change in labelling and staff training will prevent any future needless deaths of people with food allergies.
