May is Asthma & Allergy Awareness Month and we are very excited to be partnering with the Elijah-Alavi Foundation – which encourages diverse and equitable food allergy and asthma resources for children nationwide – to raise awareness of the serious, and exploding increase of Americans suffering from severe food allergies.

We invite you to join us for a Facebook Live Q&A on food allergies with Elijah-Alavi Foundation Co-Founder Thomas Silvera on Thursday, May 13th at 12:30 p.m. MST. Learn about the Foundation’s mission to educate daycares and schools about food allergies and how to treat them in the classroom.

Mulay’s will also donate a portion of proceeds from online sales made between Monday, May 10 – Sunday, May 16th to the Elijah-Alavi Foundation.

Roughly 85 million Americans are impacted by food allergies and intolerances, including 32 million who have a potentially life-threatening condition, according to FARE (Food Allergy Research & Education), the largest private funder of food allergy research in the world. From 2007 to 2016, the United States saw a 377% increase in anaphylactic reactions, sending someone to the emergency room every three minutes!

Mulay’s is very proud to be the first & only meat company to be Certified Free From the “Big 8” food allergens; wheat, soy, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish. All Mulay’s sausages and meatballs are made with 100% antibiotic-free heritage pork, sustainably sourced from 100+ small U.S. family farms. We are also Certified Gluten-Free, Paleo and Keto.

“We understand the importance of allergen-free food and are passionate about helping to raise awareness,” said Mulay’s Founder, President & CEO Loree Mulay Weisman. “Proper allergen food labeling is key to consumer safety. We want our customers to feel confident that when they buy our products, they are purchasing safe, delicious sausage and meatballs that are made using only the highest quality, antibiotic-free Heritage pork, with no fillers, no nitrates, no MSG and no sugar.”
