Florida School Enforces Tough Peanut Allergy Regulations

Students at Edgewater Elementary in Florida are required to wash their hands and rinse their mouths out before entering the classroom. Teachers also must ensure that desks are continually cleaned with Clorox wipes. The school has banned all peanut products, eliminated snacks in the classroom and prevented outside food at holiday parties. And last week a peanut-sniffing dog was brought into the school.
