Cross-contact occurs when an allergen is inadvertently transferred from a food containing an allergen to a food that does not contain the allergen. Cooking does not reduce or eliminate the chances of a person with a food allergy having a reaction to the food eaten. Cross-contact can happen through:

  • Food to food - e.g. nuts on top of a salad (even if taken off)
  • Food to object (cooking surfaces and cookware)
