Allergen information cards that will help protect the 1-2 per cent of all Australians, and particularly the 3-5 per cent of children, who have food allergies were launched.

Speaking at the beginning of Allergy Awareness Week, Senator Mason congratulated Anaphylaxis Australia for developing the cards.

"There are already strict food standards in place that ensure that foods that can cause severe allergic reactions, such as peanuts, tree nuts (for example, cashews, almonds, walnuts), shellfish, fish, milk, eggs, sesame, wheat and soybeans and their products, must be declared on the label however small the amount," he said.
