Caution for Peanuts for Infants 

9/7/17:  Caution for Peanuts for Infants - More Research for Authorization

A single study resulted in a 'qualified' claim that feeding peanuts to infants may reduce peanut allergies, but the FDA recognized that this qualified claim is less than an authorized claim.  The authorized claims carry extra weight including "significant scientific agreement among experts in the field."  In other words, the results of this study were published, but there is not yet confirmation with the leaders of the food allergy world.  The study of the 600 infants only provided enough insight to trigger additional research and studies by the National Health Institute (NIH) and National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).
