As the number of states allowing schools to maintain an emergency supply of epinephrine auto-injectors increases, many states are looking beyond the classroom to other areas where food allergy triggers could be present. In any public space where food is present – such as sports and recreation venues, summer camps, amusement parks, movie theaters – there is a risk for an allergic individual to come in contact with their allergen. Therefore, focus is widening to consider epinephrine stocking laws beyond schools and into other public “entities”.
