The worst one is the warning on the side of peanuts.

**Warning! May contain nuts!**

Smarty-pants :p

I think they put that because nut allergies are more common than legume allergies. People with allergies to tree nuts are likely to also be allergic to peanuts but not necessarily other legumes e.g. beans, peas etc.

I just hate the fact that companies have to make things so idiot proof because society has such a mix of idiots and people who try to get over on every little thing (cue Darwin awards)

It's more to do with lawsuits being filed over stupid things.

They have to be over cautious about everything cos they're all scared to death of being sued.

Exactly. But there are 2 types: idiots that sue because they're idiots. And idiots that sue because they're trying to find a way to get a free ride.

Aha but even though peanuts are not nuts that doesn't mean the packet doesn't contain nuts.

The conveyor belt they process the peanuts on might also be used to pack Macadamia's. Think about it. ;)
