FACT: Fish (e.g., trout, salmon), crustaceans (e.g., lobster, shrimp), and molluscs (e.g., scallops, clams) are sometimes collectively referred to as seafood. People allergic to one type of seafood may not be allergic to other kinds of seafood. For example, some people can eat lobster or clams but not fish. It is also possible to be allergic to some types of fish but not others. If you are allergic to one type of seafood, talk to your allergist before you consider eating other types.
