College Student 'Who Lit Up a Room,' Dies of Severe Allergic Reaction to Chinese Food

Maximillian Alexander McGlinchey, a 19-year-old Penn State University student, died on June 23, 2018 as a result of anaphylaxis to peanut exposure after eating a meal at a Chinese restaurant in his hometown of Lancaster, Pennsylvania. His is the second food anaphylaxis-related fatality this June in the United States.

Max was diagnosed with peanut allergy and asthma “almost at birth,” says his older sister, Chloé McGlinchey, who works as a registered nurse at UC Health in Denver.

There was a lot of awareness about Max’s peanut allergy with his family, at school and with the bus drivers, and McGlinchey told Allergic Living that his mother Silvia was very careful to communicate and to renew prescriptions for epinephrine auto-injectors and inhalers. Yet, there didn’t appear to be communication with restaurant servers about his allergy.

“Never do I recall it (peanut allergy) being that wherever we went, we asked a waiter, ‘Are there peanuts’ (in this)? Maybe his mom (Chloé has a different mother) or my dad did on the side, and I didn’t hear it. Growing up, that just was not something that we did. We knew he had a peanut allergy, but it was not something that our lives revolved around.”

Should you give your asthma action plan to supervisor?

At work I gave a copy of my asthma action plan to the nurse AND my supervisor. Usually we just give emergency contact and medical info to the nurse, but do you think it was a smart thing to give it to my supervisor as well?


Yes, you should. I am a supervisor and not knowing what is going on when someone has an attack is scary! You could die because someone is uneducated about asthma


yes
