Allergy: Molluscs

Molluscs and their derivatives can be found in many products, including these shown below:

Molluscs include: mussels, oysters, squid and octopus.

Mollusc allergy symptoms can be quite severe and there is always high risk of cross contamination as they move through the supply chain.

Found in: Ethnic food, Sauces and Soups.

As crustaceans and molluscs (oysters, squid, scallops) contain the same type of proteins some people may react to both groups of foods. Symptoms range from itching and swelling of the mouth and throat (oral allergy syndrome) to life threatening reactions.
