I am hoping somehere knows the answer to this.  I tested positive for an allergy to Sawflower oil.  If I am allergic to this, does this mean that I am allergic to things with Sunflower oil too and also things like Sunflower seeds?
 
Thank you.

Did you mean Safflower? From what I understand Safflower and Sunflower are different plants.
