Will imitation crab trigger a shellfish allergy?

In brief: No

Imitation crab meat is made from fillets of Alaska pollock.
As long as you don't have a history of fish allergy you shouldn't have a problem. You should be careful however, because some manufacturers that produce these products also manufacture shellfish products in the same facility which could cause cross-contamination.
