What do people who suffer from environmental or food allergies need to know?

Restaurants aren't very good about avoiding allergens, even when warned. I know of one case where a patron purchased cupcakes, having told the cupcake bakery not to include any nut products. Turns out they got peanut-butter frosting on one of the cupcakes, and a child had a severe allergic reaction. I have no idea if any action was taken toward the bakery, not that it would have gone anywhere. - Oct 2019
