Clam is closely related to quahogs and cockles. The Manilla clam, also referred to as littleneck clam or carpet shell, is a hard shell clam cultivated on a very large scale in, for example, Japan, and then frozen whole and exported widely. It is commonly used around the world, for instance, in clam sauce for pasta or just steamed. This clam is closely related to quahogs and cockles and cross-reactivity to other bivalves cannot be excluded.

Occupational asthma and food allergy caused by clam have been reported. Copyright Copyright © 2006 Phadia AB. Source: ImmunoCap, ImmunoCap
