Video: Food Allergies

This video covers food allergies and intolerances, common food allergies and the responsibilities of Food Handlers when it comes to food allergies.

Australia has some of the highest food allergy and intolerance levels in the world. 

Even trace amounts of a food allergen in the wrong meal can cause a life-threatening allergic reaction. 

This video, extracted from the AIFS Food Safety Supervisor course, covers common food allergens in Australia, signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction and food allergen labelling requirements under the Food Standards Code.
