Jenny from Multiple Food Allergy Help reports "Propofol anesthesia has been linked to reactions for people with egg and soy allergies!! If you or your child is having any kind of surgery- BE SURE TO MENTION THIS!

Some on line sources suggest Amidate is an egg free anaesthetic, please talk to your anesthesiologist for up to date information.
