What is a Seafood Allergy?
What is a Seafood Allergy?

Seafood allergy is the most common food allergy in the United States. Approximately 12 million Americans suffer from food allergy, with 6.9 million allergic to fish and/or shellfish.

Seafood allergy is usually a life-long allergy and can cause life-threatening reactions. A seafood allergy occurs when the immune system mistakenly interprets the proteins in a product containing fish or shellfish as a harmful substance. When a person with this allergy comes in contact (touching, breathing or eating) with seafood, the body produces antibodies to fight the harmful substance, and this triggers an allergic reaction.

The most common reactions include rash (atopic dermatitis), redness and swelling around the mouth, hives (urticaria), asthma, stomachache, cramping, diarrhea or vomiting, asthma, and in extreme cases anaphylaxis. Reactions can occur within minutes or several
hours after consuming the allergen. Learn More
