How the hell is this the OPs fault? The waitress is a moron. She said there were no peanuts in the food, she should have known peanut oil counts and if she wasn't sure, she should have asked. To the OP, that sucks. I'm alergic to peanuts, I compeletly understand. I'm sorry the waitress was a moron. You should sue. Please do. I know people who would have died if that happened to them. Ignore the morons who say you deserved it, they clearly don't understand what it's like to have medical conditions like food alergies.
Umm what the hell? Yes peanut oil can give someone with a severe allergy a reaction. You're an idiot. @OP: That sucks. My sister has a class 6 peanut allergy and I'm always afraid something like this would happen to her. If she didn't have her medication with her she'd die. People are such idiots. FYL
Highly refined peanut oil does not contain peanut protein. Less refined peanut oil does. You generally can't tell from an ingredients list how refined the peanut oil is, so if you've got a peanut allergy, you are safest avoiding all peanut oil unless you know from experience that the particular item containing peanut oil is safe for you.
Two sides here, people. Every single Chinese food recipe I've ever looked up contains peanut oil. If OP's allergy is that severe, it IS partially on her for not properly researching her life-threatening allergy. OP is wrong in this situation, too. That being said, the waitress is (of course) a fucking moron. I just don't think she deserves ALL the blame.
What a Bitch! Unless she truly didn't know. Now she is sitting at home wondering what baby oil is made of.
That was stupid of her, but you should know as a peanut allergy sufferer that most Chinese places cook thei food in peanut oil and been more cautious.
I'm sure OP meant the dish she ordered didn't contain peanuts...not that the restaraunt was peanut free. Anyways, just because your dish doesn't have peanuts you shouldn't risk it being cooked near other dishes that are. It is for this reason that my brother who is allergic to several nuts (not peanuts) does not eat at chinese restaraunts ever. Sorry the chinese waitress didn't realize that peanut oil counts just as much as actual peanuts
That suucks, I know the feeling of having a peanut allergy reaction, feels like you're about to die. And I agree, most Chinese restaurants do cook in peanut oil, so you've gotta ask a lot. I always ask, lol, some people ask me why I always ask, but shoot, I don't wanna die yet, lol.
It's not the restaurant's health problem, it's hers. She knows when she goes to a restaurant that they are not planning their menu to take her allergies into account. She also knows that the waitress will be busy and is not a medical expert. So really: if she wants to eat out, she needs to keep in mind that the oil could also be made from peanuts. She needs to tell the waitress that she wants a dish without peanuts - because she is allergic to them, not just because she doesn't like peanuts. She also needs to check explicitly with the waitress about the cooking oil, because the waitress has hundreds of other things on her mind.
I also know since I have a severe allergic reaction if I eat any type of nut. when I went on a trip to Cyprus with my school I had to go to pizza hut while everyone else (50 people) went to this fancy Chinese place and I had to wait till we went back to the hotel to eat(03:00)
That really depends on which question she asked. If she asked "does this dish contain peanuts" than she has no basis for her lawsuit, because the truthful answer was no. Just as if you ask at Mcdonalds if the apple pies are fried separately from the french fries, the truthful answer is yes, even though they use the same grease for both, because they aren't fried together. If she said, "i'm allergic to peanuts and I need to make sure this dish does not contain any trace amounts of peanuts" then she has basis for a lawsuit
