I have returned from my trip to Bangkok. The strongly worded food allergy cards were amazing. First, I asked the waiter if peanuts or peanut oil were used in their recipes. They usually said no. When I showed the waiters the strongly worded card, they paused, went to check with the cook and/or manager, and usually suggested a particular meal to eat. At most Thai restaurants I stuck with dessert. One restaurant was extremely accommodating, cooking my food from scratch with freshly washed pots and utensils. The SelectWisely cards were a life-saver!

Just to let you know that the cards I ordered in March were amazing. I had my son's food allergies to milk, eggs and nuts translated into Thai by you. We used them everywhere we went and couldn't have survived without them. The staff in the resort in Phuket took the cards to the kitchen and managed to provide safe meals for my son. We did have an incident at breakfast and we think the Special K cereal may have been cross contaminated with nuts. My son had a severe anaphylactic allergy reaction so we used your Emergency card to get us to the hospital. The hotel staff got us a taxi immediately, the taxi driver read the Emergency card and got us to the hospital very quickly. The doctors read the food allergy cards and understood what was going on. They treated him instantly. In summary your food allergy cards and emergency cards were a life-saver for us. Thank you very much. It is a great service you provide.

My daughter did great in China with her food choices. She enjoyed the most freedom she has ever experienced eating out in restaurants. Dairy is used very infrequently in Chinese cooking; however, when needed, the food allergy cards were of great help. The Chinese were very intrigued with the cards. Several people commented that the translations were very accurate and precise! Thank you so much for providing this service; it is well needed and very useful!

I have been using your food allergy cards for at least 8 years and am a huge fan. Thank you so much for allowing me to follow my husband on expat assignments to Germany and now China and still be able to eat out and travel extensively. I have bought new cards because I have developed new food allergies but also have purchased them for my daughters and recommended them to MANY expats in both countries - including my nephew who is here in China as well with an allergic son. These food allergy cards give me a great deal of confidence when eating out and the Chinese here in Shanghai have been very attentive to my dietary concerns. Thanks, again!

I just wanted to tell you that the food allergy cards that we ordered worked just great. Everywhere that we went my husband would just show them his card and they took it to the person in charge and they checked to make sure that there was not any cottonseed oil in the products. It seems that Germany does not even use cottonseed oil but my husband said the cards were worth their weight in gold to him. So you see, you have a very good product that you are selling. I am sure it will help many other people in the same situation. You can use this letter as a testimonial if you like. We are very grateful to you. Again, thank you.
