Jennifer Davis and her daughter Danielle are trying to get a federal law passed for a universal allergy plan in the U.S.

Their biggest supporters are the Food Allergies Anaphylaxis Network, a nonprofit organization.

The way current allergy systems work depends on the schools and the locations of them.

With a federal law being passed though each school will follow the same set-up, making for a safer environment.

The Food Allergy and Anaphylaxis Management Act was passed by the House in April and is now waiting in the Senate.

According to the FDA, food allergies cause 150 deaths, 30,000 emergency room visits, and 2,000 hospitalizations each year.
