Caution: These peanuts contain peanuts (please don't sue us)

My daughter bought a package of butter toffee peanuts:

On the back of the package is a warning:

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

This warning is necessary, because otherwise, someone who is allergic to peanuts might buy these butter toffee peanuts without realizing they contain peanuts, get sick, and sue the peanut company for not warning them about the peanuts in the butter toffee peanuts.

Yep. This is the kind of country I live in.


  1. But what about styrofoam peanuts?

  2. Nanny states....

    In a few years we will all have to have a 'protection officer' that chews our food for us while so we don't choke.


What do you think?
