FDA to label foods that contain crushed peanuts that infants can eat

(WTNH) — The FDA will soon label foods that contain crushed peanuts that are appropriate for infants to eat.

The announcement comes following the release of a study from the Immune Tolerance Network.

The study found that introducing peanut products to kids between four and ten months in age significantly reduced the chance they would develop a peanut allergy.

There is no word yet on when these labeled products will hit the market.
