1) my child reacts to thresholds well below 20ppm.  So FDA guidelines, labeling and this analysis are pretty meaningless when it comes to managing exposure.

2) regarding manufacturing lines:. She got sick after eating macadamia nuts with sea salt.  Then i saw there was a little tiny D on the ingredient line, and I called the manufacturer to ask why they were listing dairy.  Their answer?  "We run everything on the same line, which includes the coated nuts, and don't really clean it very well."  So you cannot assume that the cleaning between lines actually gets rid of the level we need to manage.

For the typical analysis your article may make sense.  For the super sensitive, not really.
