A FOOTBALL coach suffered a life-threatening allergic reaction after tasting an Indian takeaway containing peanuts — 10 years after his sister died from eating a curry.

Steven Obertelli went into anaphylactic shock soon after tasting the chicken tikka masala he ordered from his regular curry house.

The 29-year-old had told waiters at Westhoughton Indian Tandoori Takeaway that he was allergic to nuts — but chefs used a new ingredient in the curry, unaware that it was ground peanuts.

The case came to light after the takeaway owner was landed with a bill for thousands of pounds in fines, court costs and compensation.

The severe reaction, in May last year, came 10 years after Mr Obertelli’s elder sister Kate, a nail technician, died after suffering a fatal reaction to peanuts.

In July 2003, the 21-year-old died after eating an Indian takeaway from a Chorley business. She had also told waiters she had an allergy.

Mr Obertelli, who has eaten curries from the Market Street takeaway since he was a youngster, said: “As a family our only previous dealings with a serious allergic reaction has been a fatality.

“It isn’t right that every time you go out for a meal you play Russian roulette with your life.

“Restaurants think you are being fussy when you say you have an allergy but it is not somebody being picky — it is something they really can’t eat.”

Shortly after tasting the curry Mr Obertelli had problems breathing. He felt his throat closing and his lips swelled.

He used his EpiPen — an injection device for anaphylaxis — and was taken to hospital by his parents.

He then suffered a second reaction when the medication wore off and stayed in hospital overnight.

Mr Obertelli, who is a coach at Burnley Football Club, asked his wife, Emma, to freeze the takeaway so it could be tested.

Bolton Council’s environmental health officers found that the chicken tikka masala and plain naan bread contained ground peanuts — despite a nut-free meal being requested.

Officers also uncovered cross contamination and found that takeaway owner Alkus Ali was not aware that the new ingredient he bought contained peanuts.

Ali, aged 54, of Westend Street, Oldham, admitted two counts of selling food not of the nature, substance or quality demanded by the purchaser.

Bolton magistrates fined him £500, ordered him to pay £5,000 court costs and pay the victim £2,500.

A Bolton Council spokesman said: “This was a very serious incident.

“It is very important that food business operators and handlers take food allergy seriously to avoid making someone very ill.”

Lynne Regent, chief executive of the Anaphylaxis Campaign said people with a severe nut or peanut allergy should try to avoid Chinese, Thai or Indian takeaways.

You'd think there'd be some kind of testing kit these days, like strips of litmus paper that you can dip in your food which reacts and changes colour if peanuts are present.

You can get testing kits for all sorts of allergens including peanuts.

I have no idea about how reliable or cost effective they are.

If i had such a sensitive allergy I would be tempted to look into them. The sensitivity of some nut/peanut allergies is such that you are putting you life in others hands each time you buy ready meals, takeaways or prepped food. I think id be eating home cooked!

So as a restaurant or take away are you better off saying that you can't confirm whether their are peanuts in the food? Unless they making everything from scratch (and I wouldn't be expecting a takeaway to do so) theres no way of knowing?

That's the way I would look at it if I was in that line of business. I'd rather lose the £5 curry sale than risk being dragged through to courts for thousand s of £'s.

What's to say that the carrot picker at the farm wasn't munching KPs finest just before he packed my baby carrots?

Too right he should sue them! What should he have done? Accept a written apology, a handshake and a free meal?

Regular customer or not, this restaurant nearly killed him!! He's already lost a sister (and his parents a daughter) to the exact same type of mindless actions. At some point somebody needs to take responsibility. Let it be a lesson to all restauranteurs... If you can't confirm all the ingredients in your food (in particular nuts/peanuts) then just say so. It's then the responsibility of the customer to decide if he or she wants to take the risk..

Sorry to sound harsh, but if I was in his position, I wouldn't just be saying to the waiter in a parochial curry house "Can I have a nut-free meal, please?" and then rely on his and the chef's judgement as to whether or not any of the ingredients contained traces of nuts.

It's a risk I simply wouldn't take.

Especially if my sister had already died in almost identical circumstances.

If you like curry, buy the ingredients yourself and cook one at home, where you can personally guarantee your safety.

It's not rocket science.....

I accept your points, but I have been assured over a number of years that the takeaway that I asked for NUT FREE meals, in the past this has been fine. If they felt they couldn't do this they should have said "No".
With regards to . . .

"£2.500 for an overnight stay in hospital the Curry house publicly humiliated sorry it aint worth it."
Can you actually put a price on a person's life; a person that is a husband and a father?

"fancy suing a takeaway you have used for years ! I am stunned this is where theres blame make a claim gone mad "
The reason i wanted the Environmental Health to investigate the takeaway is because my life has been in their hands everytime I have ordered a meal from them which they guaranteed would be NUT FREE. People shouldn't be allowed to promise things without following through that could cost someone their life!
Also, the takeaway nor Mr Ali have been sued. There has been no action from myself against them other than to assist Environmental Health with their investigation into the matter. The Magistrate ordered the compensation payment it was awarded in my absence and wasn't requested.

I've not heard of a testing kit but this is something I will look into, thanks for highlighting this. With regards to eating home cooked, this is what happens most often, but having a food allergy shouldn't stop people form eating out or socialising. If a restaurant or takeaway cannot guarantee that the food can be prepared as requested then I for one wouldn't be offended but would thank them for their honesty and be happy to see people more concerned about another human beings health than their bottom line/profit margin.

Steve, I appreciate the points you are making on this issue, but sometimes, you just have to accept that certain things in life will always be unavailable to you because of the inherent risks involved.

If I couldn't be 100% certain a meal served to me in a restaurant was safe and free of nuts, I wouldn't eat it - simple.

And I wouldn't rely on the say-so of a waiter, I'd need hard evidence and proof before potentially risking my life.

It's harsh, but nobody ever said life was fair.

Anyway, glad you've made a full recovery and I wish you well for the future.

(Any chance you can have a word with Sean about loaning Jutkiewicz to us this season? It's not like you lot need him.....)

The article should state it is a takeaway it isn't an 'eat in' curry house.
My meal wasn't subject to cross contamination nor did it have 'traces' of peanut, it was made with an ingredient (Ground Nut Powder that contained a large amount of Peanuts, to be precise their was 340 mg / kg of peanut protein in my meal. Only around 5 or 6 mg / kg is enough to cause a severe reaction.
With regards to "Especially if my sister had already died in almost identical circumstances." and "it's not rocket science" does this mean that anyone who has had a family member who died in a traffic accident no one in that family should every travel by bus/car?

I have stood in the takeaway and watched them make the meal previously, I always made sure I went to pick up the meal as to eradicate the risk of a delivery driver giving me the wrong order. Maybe I have just had too much faith in mankind!?
