hi, is this reaction going to be serious?

Can you tell me what's going on?

Customer: replied 12 days ago.
sure, I have sent some gift boxes with food to clients, and by accident, some of them contain nut snacks.I would like to check if there is any serious threat with this.

There shouldn't be unless a client has allergies to the nuts

well, yes, this is my worry! I don't know about their allergies

Most people that have nut allergies know that and avoid nuts

I know - so my question is, if sending them a pack of nuts among other things can trigger a reaction itself.

No it can't
