Re: Fourth of July Dracut

Hi everyone! Kathryn here (on John's account), and I'm looking forward to
seeing everyone.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm extremely allergic to soybean oil,
which is found in many prepared foods and in any oil that is just called
"vegetable oil" without further indications of its origins. It would be
super-duper helpful if people could label foods "no soybean oil" if they
are safe for me to consume (or "K stay away" if they aren't!), or to leave
the wrapper of prepared foods available for me to check. I'm often sick for
a couple of days after consuming soybean oil accidentally, so I'd be very
much obliged!

Thanks so much!
