BLF client's story featured in Snack SafelySnack Safely, a publication dedicated to advocating for those with food allergies, recently highlighted a significant case handled by The Button Law Firm, shedding light on the challenges faced by children with severe allergies in daycare settings. The lawsuit revolves around a distressing incident at Allen Knowledge Beginnings daycare center that left a 3-year-old girl's life hanging in the balance due to negligence.

What Happened at This North Texas Daycare?

According to the article, Danielle Levy, the mother of the toddler, took legal action against the daycare, contending that caregivers knowingly served her daughter fish sticks, despite being informed of the child's life-threatening fish allergy. This disturbing pattern occurred on two separate occasions within a mere four-month span, leading to a severe anaphylactic reaction in July 2022.

Snack Safely shares that during the second incident, the toddler was discovered in a critical condition in a bathroom, exhibiting symptoms such as a swollen tongue, lips, and face. Shockingly, the daycare center and the caregiver failed to promptly contact emergency medical services or adhere to the girl's emergency allergy plan, as required by the state. Levy had to initiate the call to 911, and first responders administered life-saving measures while urgently transporting the child to the hospital.

Investigations Uncover Daycare Negligence

According to the article, the lawsuit claims that despite Allen Knowledge Beginnings positioning itself as a food allergy-safe facility, the daycare failure to uphold this commitment. An independent investigation conducted by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission Child-Care Licensing Division and the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services revealed significant violations of state laws. These included exposing a child to a known allergen and the caregiver lacking a background check and proper training for emergency responses.

This incident highlights the need for increased awareness and diligence in ensuring the safety of children with severe allergies in daycare settings.
