Petition to Demand that the ACAAI Remove False Statement Re: Cornstarch/High Fructose Corn Syrup

PETITION:
Demand that the ACAAI Remove False Statement Re: Cornstarch/High Fructose Corn Syrup

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.

Argo Cornstarch Oral Challenge to Test Hypothesis Presented by the ACAAI
 [Conclusion: If you are allergic/intolerant to corn, do NOT consume cornstarch. I suffered a significant allergic reaction as a result of this oral challenge.]


NO PHYSICIAN SHOULD EVER
DECLARE THAT IT IS SAFE TO CONSUME
ONE'S ALLERGEN OR DERIVATIVE
OF ONE'S ALLERGEN

STRICT AVOIDANCE IS ADVISED


"Patient education: Food allergy treatment and avoidance (Beyond the Basics)," Scott H. Sicherer, MD, FAAAAI, UpToDate, April 25, 2017
"People with food allergies can have serious or even life-threatening reactions after consuming certain foods. The most important strategy in the management of food allergies is to avoid eating these foods."

  2. A year after mailing them a certified letter, they finally redacted their blatantly-false statement regarding cornstarch; however, we continue to appeal to them to redact their equally-false statement regarding corn syrup. Thank you for your response.
