Nuts

Nuts
Am I the only one on this planet who finds the hysteria over the so called "nut allergy" to be a tad errrmmm...nuts?

Cadbury Schweppes was forced for the second time in two years to recall thousands of chocolate bars. A printing problem had led to the omission of nut allergy warning labels from 250g Dairy Milk Double Choc bars.

The Double Choc bars are produced on a production line that is used to make other products containing nuts, and there is, therefore, a risk of contamination.

I am in no way criticising Cadbury, but seriously though...how many millions are likely to die if a Double Choc bar (which does not contain farking nuts anyway) were to be inadvertently eaten by those allegedly with this so called "nut allergy"?

    let's face it, those who have a serious nut allergy know which companies they can buy from.

    Surprisingly, Pizza Hut is on that list...

    You seem to be stating a belief that people with a "nut allergy" are faking it for some unknown reason.

    I have a friend with such an allergy and have seen first-hand the results of inadvertent nut ingestion (can I say that?). An injection (not sure what of) was required, with death a real possibility if not applied.

    As he was unaware of the nut traces before showing any symptoms (face swelling up followed by collapsing in a faint), I think I can probably confirm the phenomena as real.

    Cadburys should have called me, I would have been more than happy to dispose of the chocs in safe manner.

    Ken,
    Shouldn't the warning sign you show on your post be hung outside the Houses of Parliament?
