Thread Name: BS: Whatever happened to salted peanuts?
Subject: RE: BS: Whatever happened to salted peanuts?
"it says 'contains nuts'."

That is a foolish warning. There are people who are allergic to nuts, some to peanuts and some to both. The difference is that nuts (leave it alone, Spaw) grow above ground and peanuts--the peanut, or groundnut or goober is a species in the legume (bean) family--grow below ground.

As Max Johnson pointed out though, it IS a silly warning. However, in a sue-crazy world, CYA is of paramount importance in the minds of corporations.
