I saw a news story on Twitter about this yesterday (through @kfatweets and @allergistmommy) and just as I was about to post, NIAID emailed me this morning. Have a look at this press release:

The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, is seeking public comment on draft Guidelines for the Diagnosis and Management of Food Allergy.
