Bacteria found in chicken feed used at two Iowa farms has been linked to a salmonella outbreak that prompted the recall of more than a half billion contaminated eggs.

People with food allergies usually react to just one or two specific foods. In children, cow's milk, eggs, and peanuts are likeliest to trigger reactions. Other potential troublemakers include wheat, soybean products, seeds, fish, shellfish, and tree nuts (such as walnuts and pecans). A few foods have an undeserved reputation for causing allergies. Strawberries, citrus fruits, and tomatoes very rarely trigger a reaction, and nobody is allergic to sugar.
