Hidden Peanut Danger: Secret Strategies to Avoid Cross-Contamination

by Pratyush Anand

Sharing a jar with a friend? Big mistake. A single crumb of another food can trigger a reaction. Designate separate jars (with labels) for those with allergies.

1. Double Dipper Disaster

2. The Kiss of Death

Peanut butter residue on your lips can transfer to others. Wash your face thoroughly after indulging, especially if someone with a peanut allergy is around.

Don't reuse the same spoon for peanut butter and other foods. Wash utensils immediately after each use to avoid accidental transfer.

3. Utensil Undercover Agent

Clean surfaces meticulously. Peanut butter dust settles everywhere. Wipe down counters, cabinets, and highchairs to eliminate hidden allergens.

4. The Crumb Caper

Pack lunches safely. Use separate containers for peanut butter sandwiches and other allergy-free foods. Give them almond butter as an alternative to peanut butter.

Dish towels harbour allergens. Use disposable wipes or separate cloths for cleaning surfaces that have come into contact with peanut butter.

6. The Dish Towel Traitor

Beware of hidden peanuts. Chocolate bars, cookies, and even some cereals can contain trace amounts. Always read labels carefully.

7. The Real Cousins

Sharing food shouldn't be scary. Plan a peanut-free zone at your next potluck. Offer delicious alternatives and keep everyone safe without a single allergic reaction.

8. Picnic Panic Prevented

Make handwashing a priority. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds before and after handling peanut butter.
