My daughter (aged 13) currently has hives from eating Old El Paso Crispy Chicken meal kit which contains annatto colour - she ate last night. It is the only uncommon food she had eaten this week and 30 mins after consumption her face was red, swollen, hot and itchy. We had to double dose her with an antihistamine, and after consult with the doctor we have confirmed it is caused an allergy and the only ingredient we can ascertain which she would normally not consume is Annatto 160b. The hives lasted for 3 days on her face and was very itchy. We will certainly not be consuming this product again – Lisa

(The allergic issue including anaphylaxis has long been known. See factsheet with links to many more reports)
