FOOD ALLERGIES

The Salinas City Elementary School District (SCESD) tries to avoid products having peanuts or other nuts as an ingredient, but SCESD cannot guarantee that foods purchased have not been in contact with peanuts or other nuts during manufacturing or that food served in the general lunch program is allergen free.  In response to parental requests that SCESD identify ingredients in the products used by SCESD’s cafeterias, SCESD hereby attaches an Allergen Tolerance Report.  This Report is provided for informational purposes only and is intended to serve as a resource guide, not an authoritative source. It is not a guarantee of all ingredients in all foods. Products stocked by SCESD change due to supplier changes or substitutions.  Manufacturers may also change formulation and ingredient profiles without the knowledge of SCESD.  Significantly, the information provided in the attached Allergen Tolerance Report is not intended to replace the advice of any physician or healthcare professional regarding allergen exposures.

Please note that SCESD is not responsible for and cannot guarantee the accuracy of any of the information contained in the attached Allergen Tolerance Report; this information is presented to SCESD’s Food Services Department through its manufacturers.  This information is neither generated nor assembled by SCESD and, therefore, SCESD shall not assume or accept any liability for errors, omissions or substitutions made by the respective manufacturers.  For students with severe allergies, it is strongly suggested that parents have a marked menu signed by a recognized medical authority for the cafeteria staff to follow or are encouraged to bring meals from home.  SCESD cannot guarantee that a student will never experience an allergy related event while at school.
