Legume Lupin can pose an allergy risk to those kids with Peanut allergy

The legume (bean) Lupin on was in the news last week as a concern for parents of children with peanut allergy. Apparently, this legume was previously uncommon in the US but is being imported and used as an ingredient more and more often. Parents need to add this to their ingredient vocabulary as it is a potential allergen for children who are also allergic to peanuts (also a legume).
