Shocking to find out that bananas...

We were shocked when we read the article 12-non-vegan-foods. Our son has an anaphylactic shock reaction to seafood, shellfish being the worst. He loves smoothies but has been experiencing apnea and cyanosis episodes lately. We have been adding bananas to increase his caloric intake, ironically he has been losing weight.
"This one is a shocker!  For those who have a shellfish allergy or who are vegan or vegetarian, yourbananas may be treated with a spray made from shellfish.  Bananas are sprayed with Chitosan, a bacteria fighting spray made from shrimp and crab shells.  It is essential to purchase organic bananas.  If you are allergic, you may have gone your whole life thinking you were allergic to bananas, only to find out you are really allergic to shellfish!

If you are allergic to shellfish, buy organic bananas to avoid eating bananas treated with a shellfish spray!"

We think we will stop all bananas for a couple of weeks, good thing apples and pears are in season.
