It's almost like the Mirror published a deliberately misleading and deceptive headline just to get people to click on it. Why would anybody hang out on a site that engages in such juvenile, trollish behavior? Grow up, people.

The peanut is neither a pea nor a nut, discuss.

Aldi recalled its Clancy's Barbecue Flavour Coated Peanuts because they contain cashew nuts

Okay, that makes sense to me...

I do product recalls for a living and ocaisionally I will get a job pulling food because nuts, milk products, gluten isn't listed on the label. The food is fine otherwise. The strangest recall was rotisserie chicken (the kind they cook at the market) because the cardboard box they were packed in (and which the customer never sees) didn't have "gluten" listed as a possible ingredient. I (and my cats) ate a lot of chicken for a long time after that.

If you have a tree nut allergy, but can eat peanuts, this is to inform you that they are probably packaged in the same facility as tree nuts, and may contain traces of them.

Not to worry.  They are well within the FDA's maximum standards.

The last thing I want to see on a label is "may contain nuts".   It should have "definitely contains nuts" or just have common sense win and not have the damn label in the first place.

Fark, I say we take the warning labels off everything and let Darwin do his job for once.

It looks like the packages contain cashews, although whether or not it's an accident or something that's supposed to be there isn't really clear. Some articles make it seem like they're supposed to be in there.

Either way, if the bag does contain cashews then it can be dangerous for people like me who are allergic to tree nuts (as in hives and swelling) but not to peanuts. I can generally eat things that are processed in the same factory since I'm thankfully not that sensitive, but if I eat actual tree nuts I'd more than likely have to take a trip to the ER. I'd like to think that I could tell the difference between cashews and peanuts with just a glance, but when they're covered with coating and sometimes smashed up a bit, it can be hard to tell. I've had some close and uncomfortable calls.

I'm glad I don't have any nut allergies, and I hope that if I have children some day, they won't have nut allergies either.

Wave Of Anal Fury: No, they're seeds.


They are considered 'culinary nuts', but not 'botanical nuts'.

Meaning that, while they're not technically nuts, they're still used like nuts (so the difference is mostly academic).

// tomato ... culinary vegetable :P

I was about to say the bit about the tomato until I saw you already covered that.
So, I'll go with Stuart from Big Bang Theory and what he has to say, "It's wrong to say that a tomato is a vegetable.  It's VERY wrong to say that it's a suspension bridge."

My wife is deathly allergic to cashews and if she were to ingest the smallest morsel of one, she would suffocate from the allergic reaction.  She can eat peanuts all day long - and keeps a jar of peanuts at her desk at work because they are a good low-carb snack.  But a cashew is instant death.

So yeah - it is important to recall peanuts that contain cashews.

People who think that accurate ingredients lists are counter to common sense should at least have the strength of conviction to never pay attention to anything they put in their mouth.

"Sure I'm eating what could be some sort of drug, or plastic bits from a toy, or who really knows what, but they're small and brightly colored, so I bet they're candy.  It's just common sense!"

Make sure you don't vaccinate then. That's how you get them. And autism.

Do you understand that TREE NUTS and PEANUTS, despite looking similar, are two completely different things?

Someone who is allergic to one is usually not allergic to the other.

I do, but that wasn't the point. They use a clickbait headline to get you to click, and you have to scroll to the bottom of TFA to find out just how clickbait-y it actually is.
