Food Poisoning/Allergy Protocol...thoughts?

rednax8 | Nov 1, 2007 01:55 PM

I have a lethal allergy to sea food. I've had it forever, and either avoid being around it, ordering anything that might have it, or tell the server about it, to relay the chef.
That being said, I realize that I take risks whenever I eat out. Recently, I went to a place where I'd eaten a numbe of times. I told the waiter about my allergy, and didn't think anything more about it. Long story short, wound up in the emergency room with a needle being jabbed in my leg to bring me back from the brink.

So here's my question. Should I have told the restaurant about it? I mean, I did take the risk by eating there (vietnamese place and super yummy).... I'm not about to sue them, I don't want to make anyone feel bad...
