The district may not know the exact ingredients used in the preparation of food and beverage items served within the school lunch program and/or by parent and school organizations.  Every effort is made to instruct our food production staff on the severity of food allergies.  In accordance with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act, the major allergen ingredients of milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soybeans, wheat and shellfish are to be identified on food labels.  However, food manufactures are not required to declare these same allergenic ingredients which may be introduced through cross contact.  Cross contact /contamination may occur during harvesting, transportation, manufacturing, processing and storage.  

While these ingredient lists are available, there is no guarantee of the absence of these major food allergens. In addition, based upon vendor availability food products may be substituted with similar brands without notice.  The parent/guardian of a student with anaphylaxis to food is to be responsible for their child’s purchase and consumption of any food product sold or provided by the school and needs to be aware of the potential hazards associated with the consumption of food not provided from the home.

For information pertaining to ingredient labels please contact
Sodexo School Services at 732-462-8400, e. 8870 or 8871.
