Seafood Allergies

Each year, millions of Americans have allergic reactions to food. Although most food allergies cause relatively mild and minor symptoms, some food allergies can cause severe reactions, and may even be life-threatening.

There is no cure for food allergies. Strict avoidance of food allergens — and early recognition and management of allergic reactions to food — are important measures to prevent serious health consequences.

More than 160 foods have been identified to cause food allergies in sensitive individuals. However, the eight major food allergens identified by FALCPA account for over 90 percent of all documented food allergies in the U.S. and represent the foods most likely to result in severe or life-threatening reactions.

Under FALCPA, a "major food allergen" is an ingredient that is one of the following five foods or from one of the following three food groups or is an ingredient that contains protein derived from one of the following:

  • milk
  • egg
  • fish
  • Crustacean shellfish
  • tree nuts
  • wheat
  • peanuts
  • soybeans

There are many discussions on the topic of food allergies topic found on the web. Some specifically discuss cod liver oil. There may be many antigens that cause allergic reactions. People who suffer from food allergies can react differently to any brand/lot/type of fish oil and maybe even individual packages.

If you or a family member suspects a food allergy please consult your physician prior to using any and all fish oil/ cod liver oil products. There are discussions indicating that if one has a shellfish allergy they should never take a cod liver oil or other products from the sea such as some calcium supplements.  IMPORTANT: Fermented Cod Liver Oil and Skate Liver Oil products are processed in a facility that also processes or stores shell fish, other families of fish, tree nuts, milk products and soy products.

Here are a few specific references found that discuss cod liver oil in relation to seafood allergies.
