The National Peanut Board

It came to our attention yesterday that The National Peanut Board took out a full page ad in USA Today regarding Southwest's decision to stop serving peanuts. The ad is full of inaccuracies and misinformation. 

The PAK board decided that we needed to respond. Please see below our letters to The National Peanut Board and Southwest Airline. 

To The National Peanut Board-

We are writing today in regards to your full page ad in USA Today. We completely understand that you have a product which you want to sell. It is quite obvious that you have an issue with Southwest Airlines and their decision to stop serving peanuts. Instead of taking out an insulting and inaccurate ad, maybe you could have held private discussions with Southwest Airlines.
The second paragraph of your ad is untrue. There are many nut free classrooms in schools today. They are designated as such out of necessity for the health and safety of allergic children. In addition, a person with any food allergy can be contact and/or airborne allergic. You talk about research, but it is quite apparent you have not done yours.
It is a shame that you spent so much money on this ridiculous ad when you could have spent this money on funding more research on treatment and prevention since you alluded to the LEAP study. The LEAP study is where infants who qualify can be exposed to peanuts at an earlier age.
We are food allergy advocates and trust us when we say Southwest Airlines’ decision to stop serving peanuts will not “cloud” the extraordinary work that we do to educate and advocate EVERY DAY.

Dear Southwest Airlines,

We are a nonprofit food allergy support group in Charlotte, NC. We have over 1,300 members and, on their behalf, we would like to say THANK YOU for making a decision to eliminate peanuts on your flights for the health and safety of so many people. We realize that you are facing backlash from some groups including the National Peanut Board lobby, but we want you to know that there are so many people who support and appreciate your decision.

Peanut allergy is one of the most severe, tragically causing several deaths each year. Thank you for taking a huge step to try and prevent a tragedy from occurring on your airline.

Sincerely,

Heather Chait & Randi Eccleston

PAK Coordinators

I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way
of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?
