    Workers power wash Ryan Field of peanut debris.

    Northwestern University found a unique way to make its stadium peanut free.

    Crews used power washers to clean the seats at Ryan Field Wednesday to clear it of all peanut debris.

    The step was taken so that people with peanut allergies can enjoy Saturday's game versus the Minnesota Golden Gophers without fear of being exposed.

    Peanut allergies affect about five of every 1,000 Americans.
