  • Description:
    These guidelines, Voluntary Guidelines for Managing Food Allergies in Schools and Early Care and Education Programs (hereafter called the Voluntary Guidelines for Managing Food Allergies), were developed in response to Section 112 of the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, which was enacted in 2011. This act is designed to improve food safety in the United States by shifting the focus from response to prevention. Section 112(b) calls for the Secretary of Health and Human Services, in consultation with the Secretary of Education, to "develop guidelines to be used on a voluntary basis to develop plans for individuals to manage the risk of food allergy and anaphylaxis in schools and early childhood education programs" and "make such guidelines available to local educational agencies, schools, early childhood education programs, and other interested entities and individuals to be implemented on a voluntary basis only." Each plan, described in the act to manage the risk of food allergy and anaphylaxis in schools and early childhood education programs, that is developed for an individual shall be considered an education record for the purpose of Section 444 of the General Education Provisions Act (commonly referred to as the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). The act specifies that nothing in the guidelines developed under its auspices should be construed to preempt state law.

    These guidelines were prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC's) National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion, Division of Population Health, with conceptual, technical, and editorial help from other federal agencies, including the U.S. Department of Education, U.S. Department of Agriculture, and U.S. Department of Justice; other operating divisions of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), including the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and National Institutes of Health (NIH). CDC acknowledges Mr. Pete Hunt (HHS/CDC) for his role as lead author of these guidelines. CDC also acknowledges Dr. Katherine Beckmann (HHS/ACF), Dr. Stefano Luccioli (HHS/FDA), Dr. Scott Sicherer (Mount Sinai School of Medicine), Ms. Marlie Doucet (Research Fellow, Oak Ridge Institute for Science), and Dr. Lani Wheeler (contractor, DANYA, Inc.) for their significant contribution. These guidelines are based on expert panel guidance received in 2010.
