A nut allergy sufferer rowed with Ryanair cabin crew after they 'refused' to stop selling Kinder Buenos because they told the university masters student that the chocolate treats do not contain enough hazelnut to trigger an allergic reaction. 

Ayah Wafi, 22, had spent a spontaneous weekend in Milan last January when she spotted a passenger with a Kinder Bueno on the flight back to Britain. 

Though she had told the crew when boarding that she has severe nut allergies, Ms Wafi, a masters student at the University of Manchester, was told by the passenger that the 10.5% hazelnut chocolate treat had been sold to her by Ryanair staff.

Ms Wafi, whose allergies are so severe that they can be triggered even by the smell of nuts, has accused a stewardess of telling her that there was such little hazelnut in the Ferrero product that she wouldn't have an allergic reaction. 

Offended but not wanting to cause a fuss, she spent the final hour of her holiday nervously on the lookout for passengers eating Kinder Buenos.  

Now the masters student is calling on Ryanair to find experts to teach their staff 'in more detail' about allergies, and is urging severe allergy sufferers to be wary.   

She has accused a Ryanair stewardess of talking down her concerns, saying that she wouldn't have an allergic reaction because the traces of hazelnut were so small

Ms Wafi, from Birmingham, wants staff to be more 'vigilant' and even suggested Ryanair stop selling products containing key allergens, especially on shorter flights.
