Antibiotics Suspected in Girl’s Allergic Reaction to Blueberry Pie
A girl in Canada experienced an unusual allergic reaction to blueberry pie — she was not allergic to any of the pie’s ingredients, but instead reacted to antibiotic residue in the food, a new study suggests. Shortly after eating blueberry pie, the girl experienced facial flushing, hives and abnormal breathing. She was taken to an emergency room, treated with drugs used for allergic reactions, and recovered.
Although the patient was allergic to milk, an analysis showed the pie did not contain milk. Tests for allergies to other ingredients, such as blueberries, eggs or nuts, all came back negative. Further analysis showed that the pie contained residue from an antibiotic. The doctors tested the girl for an allergy to streptomycin, an antibiotic used as a pesticide on fruit. And, indeed, she reacted to streptomycin in much the same way as she had responded to the blueberry pie. The researchers could not confirm that the pie contained streptomycin specifically, but the results suggest the girl’s allergic reaction was caused by streptomycin-contaminated blueberries, the researchers said.

– They have been adding antibiotics and now specific viruses to our food sources. The FDA allows this, the USDA allows this. I personally have moved further and further to organic everything because of stories like this. We are killing ourselves and we don’t realize it. By 2050, I imagine the number of allergic reactions in our country will have jumped to 40-60% of all people will have something serious they need to avoid on a daily basis. – be well and be blessed, Dr. E
