(Sacramento)- Tomorrow, June 26th Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan (D-Orinda) will hold a press conference at Camp Arroyo to highlight AB 1532 and the dangers of deadly food allergen contaminations at summer camps and restaurants. Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan has introduced AB 1532 -The Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Act, this legislative session in honor of Natalie Giorgi, a 13 year old who tragically passed away due to a severe reaction to a peanut allergy while at a summer camp. The bill seeks to require that all food handlers receive a simple certification in safe food handling practices for major food allergens. Natalie’s parents, Louis and Joanne Giorgi, who reside in AD16 (Danville), created the Natalie Giorgi Sunshine Foundation and have become relentless advocates for food allergy safety. Assemblymember Bauer-Kahan, Louis and Joanne Giorgi and other food allergy safety proponents will gather to speak about Natalie’s story and AB 1532. Representatives from The Taylor Family Foundation, founders of Camp Arroyo in Livermore, which has been at the forefront of food allergen safe practices will also be in attendance.
