TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the public health law, in relation to
requiring food service establishments to post notice relating to the use
of peanut oil

PURPOSE: This bill would require food service establishments to give
customers notice when peanut oil is used order to provide those with
allergies notice of such use.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

section 5 requiring all food service establishments, as defined by the

ities and when combined with those having pre-existing allergies,

customers of food service establishment's use of peanut oil by means of
signs, printed material or other written communication.
