Not sure if you remember me, but I had ordered Japanese food allergy cards while still in Ohio. We have been in Japan since early Feb. and you had asked if I would let you know how the cards are working…..I have to tell you that they have been a SERIOUS benefit to us here!!! I carry them everywhere and am able to not only use them in restaurants, but also when shopping at an off-base grocery. Even on-base, there are many Japanese who work the restaurants and their English is not very good at times. The quality of the food allergy cards is excellent and we are so thankful to have them. Thanks for putting out such an awesome product!!!

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.

We wanted to let you know how grateful we were to have my husband's food allergies translated into Spanish and Italian. We used your Italian food allergy cards constantly on our trip, as there were numerous occasion when English was not spoken. They were also a tremendous 'ice-breaker'... in one friendly Italian restaurant, the waiter (after he read all of the allergies) threw up his hands, said 'vino' and brought a bottle of wine saying that's all he could have!

I want to send you some feedback and thanks! We had a business/vacation trip to Germany in April, with our 2 year old who has peanut allergies. While we attempted to speak German when possible (we really don't know it), the food allergy cards were very handy. When the waiters didn't understand our German, we gave them the chef card and they easily helped us determine any peanut issues. Your cards allowed me to relax and feel confident that my child was eating safe foods in a country where I didn't know the language. Thanks so much!!

I have dealt with you in the past and wanted to let you know that your gluten free translation cards are fantastic! We were in a busy street in the middle of Istanbul and wanted to have lunch on our way to visit Topkapi. I showed your gluten free card and ended up being shown by the owner by way of pointing what I could and could not have. When my meal came, it looked so good our friends ordered the same lunch. It also worked in Rhodes, Greece as the owner advised me they put flour in their rice which is most unusual for me. Thanks to your cards we are able to travel wherever we wish and have absolutely no problem with my gluten free diet. In fact, I feel that we are given superior treatment as the owner normally becomes involved and the cards are taken directly to the chef to confirm that the food is all right for me. I have told many people of your business and I hope they are using it to their advantage as I do.
