Super-Kleer Shell fish warning?


I have found Super Kleer K.C to clear my red wines to be very effective. It contains Chitosan which is a shellfish derivative.
My concern is that someone who might be allergic to shell fish could have a reaction. I do not know what is left behind in the clearing that might cause a reaction nor do I know the chemical science to know if the derivative even straight is safe.
Do you think there should be a warning given on the bottle or to the person consuming the wine?

If this is a concern, I would suggest you contact the company on this. I use it too and have never heard of a problem. Does not mean there could not be one. It is my understanding that a person who is allergic to shellfish might want to be careful handling it but it all settles out during the final clearing. But do check.

LD Carlson, the manufacturer responded to my question as to how it works and if there is any concern. "Hi Mark,
I'm not exactly sure how the two work together. However I do know for certain that there is no problem using the Chitosan for anyone that is allergic to shellfish. The why it is processed destroys any and all proteins that cause allergy problems.

Thanks for posting his reply. It is about what I would expect. However it is interesting that they still put a warning on their label.
