. 32 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE FOOD ALLERGIES BUT THERE ARE NEW CONCERNS ABOUT ONE THAT’S NOT ON A LOT OF RADARS. MORE THAN A MILLION ARE ALLE RGIC TO SEASAM. Reporter: CHARLIE LOVES TO EAT BUT FOR HER MOTHER IT’S ALSO A MAJOR WORRY EVER SINCE HER DAUGHTER HAD A SEVERE REACTION. WE HAD A DINNER AND SOON AFTER EATING IT SHE BROKE OUT IN CRAZY HIVES. Reporter: CHARLIE HAS AN ALLERGY TO SEASAM. IT’S MORE COMMON THAN FIRST THOUGHT ACCORDING TO A NEW STUDY PUBLISHED IN JAMMA NETWORK OPEN. ONE DOCTOR SAID SHE SEEING AN INCREASING NUMBER OF PATIENTS. PATIENTS WITH THE ALLERGY ARE AT RISK. WE RECOMMEND ALL PATIENTS WITH A TRUE HISTORY OF A FOOD ALL ERGIC REACTION SHOULD HAVE AN EPI PEN. Reporter: THE SEEDS, OIL AND PASTE ARE IN EVERYTHING FROM BEING AGELS TO HUMMUS AND CONDIME IN, EMFS BUT THEY AREN’T ON FOOD LABELS. YOU FEEL LIKE THAT’S OVER DUE I THINK FROM WHAT WE SEE FROM THE MORE RECENT STUDIES THAT IT IS LONG OVER DUE. IT WOULD JUST HELP SO MUCH TO CONTROL THE SITUATION IF YOU HAD BETTER LABELING. THAT’S SCARY TO THINK THAT WHOEVER IS WATCHING HER CAN GIVE HER A PRODUCT BECAUSE THEY WILL LOOK AT THAT WARNING LINE THINKING THEY ARE COVERED AND THEY AREN’T. Reporter: SHE HOPES ONE DAY HER DAUGHTER WILL OUT GROW THE ALLERGY BUT UNTIL THEN THEY STAY AS WARE. IT’S ESTIMATED ABOUT 20 TO 30% OF CHILDREN WHO
