: Nut Allergy? Stay Off the Grass!
You're used to checking food labels for allergens, but you'll also want to check ingredient labels when shopping at your local garden center. Did you know that peanut hulls could be lurking on your lawn?
Some materials used for landscaping, including composting materials for your garden, contain peanut hulls -- potentially exposing anyone with a peanut allergy to the peanut byproduct.
Dried almond hulls are sometimes used as a landscaping material as well, similar to how wood chips are used, which could be troublesome for anyone with a tree nut allergy. When you're sprucing up your yard this summer, just be sure to read all ingredient labels carefully.
