I am grateful to those who posted allergy information about acai berries on this site. I am experiencing itching, raised blister-like rash and swelling on my face (especially around the eyes), rash in groin,and under my breasts. It started with itchy fingers, but no rash. I was given Brookline dark chocolate acai and blueberry candy bought at Costco. It was delious, and I ate four packets over two days. I had one unexplained diarrhea episode, but thought it was from new Chinese restaurant. Now I think it was from the acai. I have known allergies to poison icy (severe), mangoes, and cashews (mild). I will avoid acai going forward. I think I will let Costco know that they might want to post an allergy alert.
