Yesterday, I was in a restaurant. I ordered a meal that contained a plain sweet potato side. When I got it, the sweet potato had gravy on it. The menu did not say anything about a gravy. My friend and I called the waiter over to identify the gravy. He told me it was brown sugar and graham crackers. I was not convinced, so we asked another waiter. He said the gravy had walnuts/pecans. Mind you, I have a severe tree nut allergy. It all happened literally within a span of 2 minutes; I may have unwittingly contaminated the rest of the meal with the fork I had used to examine the gravy before I knew what it was. I got through some of the meal before the start of itchy lymph nodes in my neck. I got sick, not to the point of hospitalization. Should I just leave it alone?
