Nibble Nanny's Nuts

I was hugely gemused to read over the weekend that Nanny had exceeded herself wrt her own stupidity and blind subservience to rules and regulations.

Step forward the Food Standards Agency (FSA), which ordered Booths (a supermarket chain) to withdraw its own brand of Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts from its shelves.

For why?

The bags did not warn that the contents may contain nuts!

Well, OK, to be specific the bags didn't warn that they may contain peanuts; thus posing a risk to those with a peanut allergy.

That's all very well, except that "monkey nuts" is the term used to describe peanuts that have the shell/pod still intact!

In other words the bags did specifically tell people that they contained peanuts!

    A friend of mine bought a packet of biscuits on the train from Edinburgh. It carried the information: ‘These items are manufactured in a nut environment’.

    It would be hard to find anywhere that wasn't, these days.

  2. Please remember- repeat after me - Monkey Nuts aka Groundnuts aka Peanuts are NOT NUTS.

    I'd never have guessed that a bag of nuts might actually contain nuts! I think the real nuts are Nanny and her supporters!

    I am really glad that you have reverted to previous system for replying, Ken!

    1. My thanks to Tonk for pointing out that there was a major problem with the comments function:)

    The FSA.............May contain nuts!
