Dining Services has announced new signage will be posted throughout dining facilities as a result of new requirements for U.S. manufacturers to label sesame, the ninth major allergen.

 Some manufacturers may have reformulated recipes to add sesame to products that were not previously a source of sesame. The changes impact those with sesame allergy concerns. If you have a sesame allergy, please ask your healthcare professional if you can consume products that include this ingredient. Immediate questions, please reach out to Campus Executive Chef John Soder at john.soder@cafebonappetit.com

As the global supply chain continues to experience unprecedented disruptions, guests with food allergies are encouraged to frequently request and review package labels.

More information from FARE (Food Allergy Research and Education) on sesame allergy can be found here: https://www.foodallergy.org/living-food-allergies/food-allergy-essentials/common-allergens/sesame. Guests should always consult their healthcare professional for individual advice.
