  1. I know this is just an April Fools joke (which, frankly, is the most obnoxious “holiday” known to man), but I don’t think it’s particularly funny to joke about our children’s health.

  2. This REALLY needs to be taken down, even if it is a joke. My heart stopped when I read it, especially because the National Peanut board REALLY would like to get the seriousness of allergies down played–it’s money out of their pockets.
    Please retract this post. I understand good humor, but my child’s life is no joke.
