After reports that an Israeli died during a flight between Europe and the US after eating food to which he was allergic, Prof. Aharon Kessel, chairman of the Israel Allergists Association, called on all airlines immediately to stock Epipens for injection to counter anaphylactic shock from allergens.

“You must not allow passengers to be in danger because there are no Epipens on board,” he said on Wednesday.
