    Peanut oil can also be used as a lubricant in food factory machinery, so tiny amounts may be present in just about anything ...
    My cousin has a violent allergy, occasionally we play Russian Roulette with him and a bag of Revels -
    His claim to fame is vomiting on Harrod's front door after having cake which was cut with a contaminated slicer.

    from a legal standpoint it must have these warnings to cover themselves from being sued.

    Possibly, but where do you draw the line? I might mis-judge stepping off a pavement and fall over. There are no warnings. We'd literally have streets covered in warning signs!

    @ Little-Miss

    I really thought you meant your parents for a minute there...

    I would be very careful about what I sold mine

    We have a pupil with a severe allergy to dairy products. By her emergency kit there's a list of foodstuffs that might contain dairy products, including - "non dairy products"

    Yes, so did I! I was wondering what you might be selling to them!

    Not to mention the stairs at home, a warning sign on each step going up and down. Warning - steep decline ( 8% ), you may fall and hurt yourself.

    Each sign will have spray painted edges that glow in the dark or when light is reflected off of them so when walking in the dark you still see the signs going up or down the stairs :P
