 Peanut Allergy Claims the Life of 13-year Old

13-year old Katelyn Carlson died after eating Chinese food. The girl is believed to have gone into an anaphylactic shock after having eaten the food ordered from Chinese Inn restaurant in Niles.

Lab tests on the food have confirmed that the food had trace amounts of peanut products and Katelyn had an acute peanut allergy. Despite making explicit requests that peanuts or peanut products like sauces or oils should not be used in any of the food preparations, the restaurant failed to do so, due to which the Carlson Family has decided to sue the restaurant.
