Serving suggestion
delirium pissed off

I was eating some cheese just now -- Sainsbury's Somerset goat's cheese, as it happens -- when I chanced to look upon its packaging. Upon this packagaing was a picture of a piece of cheese lying on a table, cut into by a knife, with a small corner of what was probably a piece of bread just visible next to it. Naturally, this also comes with the disclaimer "serving suggestion" just in case any of us thought that the little piece of cheese no more than about 5cm in any direction and in mostly-transparent packaging actually contained a table as well.

That type of warning makes me want to tear my hair out. I feel sorely tempted to boycott anything which carries utterly ridiculous warnings, from now on. Salted peanuts saying "warning: may contain nuts" are right out, as are anything which "may be hot when heated". Of course, I'm going to have to resist the temptation, in this case, seeing as how the only other alternative is probably to starve.

Peanuts are a legume, so a warning that they may contain traces of nuts is actually useful to people who are allergic to nuts.

I mean, I agree in general, but that's a bad example.

Thank you for spreading the info... this is about the third or fourth time I've seen friends of mine complain about the nut warning on peanuts. Which is one of the few really sensible warning labels.

Interesting. Thank you.
