Peanut Oil in Potato Chips
Some of the most well known makers of potato chips use peanut oil in their cooking / manufacturing process. This makes for yet another potential disaster for anyone who has a peanut allergy. Our family has been to parties (I'm specifically thinking of a wedding reception) where bowls of potato chips and pretzels sit on the tables, allowing you to devour them prior to the main meal. Considering we don't know the ingredients of the potato chips, we never know if Christopher can have them or if we should even touch them. We do our best by inquiring about the ingredients in the potato chips and making decisions based on the outcome. But if there is ever any doubt, we always ere on the side of caution.
