For the safety of the corn allergy population, demand that the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology (ACAAI) remove the following potentially life-threatening claim from their website:
"Most corn-derived products, like cornstarch and high-fructose corn syrup, do not contain corn protein. If you have a corn allergy, you do not need to avoid these products."
Even after I presented the ACAAI with documentation refuting their false claims, they told me this afternoon that they have no intention of removing this statement from their website. Please join me in signing this petition for the safety of the corn allergy community. Thank you.
