Teal pumpkins bring food allergy awareness

Teal is the color for food allergy awareness  and homes with those pumpkins will offer non-food or allergy-safe treats on Halloween night.

The teal pumpkin project was launched last year by the non-profit group Food Allergy and Education research  as a way to help kids with serious food allergies enjoy trick or treating with their friends.

Experts say it’s not hard to find safe treats.

Most grocery stores sell candy for egg, peanut and tree nut allergies.
