Death by Quorn......well could have been!!

Sounds a little dramatic doesn't it! I know, but the bloody thing could have killed me, I tell you. Last night I had invited some friends over for fireworks and chilli, and treated myself to a little quorn sausage butty before getting ready. I am allergic, but after the doc told me to take antihistamine for 2 weeks to break the reaction to mossy bites, I figured it would also stop my reaction to quorn. Which it did for a while.

Butty scoffed, off I went to walk the dogs. 10 mins into the walk I had a sneezing fit and realised things weren't good! I rushed home, eyes slitty, and nose feeling like I'd shuffled a bag of marshmallows up it! Thankfully I got to my pills before my throat started closing off as well. Scary how quick it happens.

Imagine the end being due to a quorn sausage. Gotta admit, lots if comedy value in it. However, lesson learnt, quorn is off the menu again...forever. Hopefully the swellings will have gone down for the NEC!

I eat Quorn all the time, and love it, but have just become allergic to penicillin, and was in a similar state to your Quorn allergy. It was very frightening.

I crumbs you poor thing. I prefer the caldran(not sure how you spell them) sausages, much more flavour. Can you eat those? My daughter can't eat wheat so sadly when she is around Quorn is off the menu.

Glad you are ok. I don't realise queen was something you could be allergic to.

Hahaha, sorry I typed quorn but my spell checker changed it to queen. Hope the thought of being allergic to the queen makes you smile. Anne x
