May contain nuts

Either people with allergies are stupid, or (more likely) people that make product labels are nuts!

"Ellert Roasted Peanut Puffs, flavoured with 33% real roasted peanuts". Pictures of peanuts on the front. The word Peanut in lettering 30mm high on the front...

Indredients include Peanut Kernels (33%).

So they also put:-

ALLERGY ADVICE
Contains peanuts

and just in case you were not sure...

WARNING
Made in a factory that processes Peanuts.

OMG WTF...

  1. By coincidence I saw this today:

    "Product Description

    "Does Not Contain: Nut, Gluten, Wheat, Egg, Fish, Lactose, Sesame, Peanut, Celery, Mustard, Soya, Shellfish, Milk, Sulphites, Phenylalanine, Oats, Yeast"

  2. Hello,

    I do not know if you can do something about this, yet I am getting spammed like heck for a "MS Outlook patch".

    The hyperlink in question (I think) is:
    http://update.microsoft.com.dessaxzaq.me.uk

    And the full one is
    http://update.microsoft.com.dessaxzaq.me.uk/microsoftofficeupdate/KB910737/default.aspx?ln=en-us&email=ME@MYEMAILADDRESS.com&id=84134371374077171115634539040483941075548

    I appologize if this is not your responsibility... I came here because I tried to follow "me.uk".

    Thank you for your time, and please disregard if you cannot do anything about it.

    Have a good day!

  3. It's like the sleeping pills that say 'May cause drowsiness', it's stupid.

  4. I only published that comment because it is so funny. Why would anyone come to my blog and thing that a comment on a post about nuts would make any sense in relation to a spamming issue!

  5. He's probably a septic and doesn't understand .uk but generous application of a cluestick will probably help.

    Meanwhile back on topic, I've seen with my own eyes the children's cough remedy that says you shouldn't drive or operate heavy machinery.

    I haven't seen, but can well believe, the M+S sponge pudding that warns "contents may be hot after heating".

  6. Reading the little leaflets that come with medicines can throw up some nice ones too. Like the painkiller (ibuprofen I think) that has a known side effect of "may cause headaches".
