Warning, warning!


Soo...be on the safe side and heat it up on the stove?

Maybe if one is so lacking in common sense, one should be protectively banned from even walking through the kitchen?

I recently bought peanut butter with one listed ingredient: organic dry roasted peanuts. But of course there was the necessary warning: **Contains peanut ingredients.

Now I know food allergies are a serious thing and I by no means dismiss this as a problem.  Just that I suspect anyone who has had an allergic reaction is not going to pick up a container of peanut butter and say, "Oh, it doesn't have an official warning, maybe I'll give this a try."

  1. Oh Olga thanks for the morning giggles!! This is so funny, yet sad. I guess because we are so damn litigious that they feel they need to do this. But as you said if they need to have this printed before they know it has peanuts, perhaps they are ones who need to wear a helmet in the house. :-)

  2. Ridiculous isn't it? I thought that hot coffee lawsuit years ago was a travesty of judgement.

  3. I think lawyers get jobs to make sure this stuff appears on products. But then, look who Americans have elected to Congress and the White House!

  4. Hmmm...I wonder if they suggest it should just be heated up to lukewarm temps? I agree, some people should perhaps avoid the kitchen.

  5. As sue happy as we have become, it is sad that every little thing has to be spelled out for the dimmer sorts out there.

  8. Yes, I agree completely! The things they choose to warn us about. They really do think we are all stupid and have no common sense. Too bad the ballots didn't come with warnings.

  9. At least you saw the label and reacted. Now how many just never read any label? I find gluten free on butter wrappers. I'm glad no starch was added to butter lol. Humorous yet a bit sad that it has come to this.

  10. Labeling by lawyers. Unfortunately I sort of understand it. I did a lot of technical writing over the years and when ever I left out the obvious some brilliant jackass would demonstrate that it was only obvious to me.

  11. I recently made a food label discovery that surprised me. On a pack OK croutons n candy from Dollar Tree, under the bar code- not in ingredient section, it says ,
    "Produced with genetic engineering"!
    They are sneaking in there on the label where you don't expect it, n on cheap food. Don't know if I want that Butterscotch anymore!

I appreciate readers' comments so much. You don't even always have to agree with me.
