The article reports on the decision of several schools in the U.S. to prohibit school cafeterias from handing out peanut butter sandwiches and students from bringing peanut products in schools. According to PeanutAllergy.com, there were only 13 deaths caused by the accidental eating of a peanut product in the U.S. since 1996. The increased attention in peanut allergies was caused by the highly publicized story of the Canadian girl who died after kissing her boyfriend, who had eaten peanut butter hours earlier.
