So I'm making a PB&J sandwich for breakfast this morning. Healthy huh? Well as I'm opening the jar of peanut butter I notice on the side where the nutritional information is listed that is also says "WARNING: May Contain Peanuts" WOW!! You mean my peanut butter may contain peanuts? Who woulda thunk it? Good lord are people so f'ing stupid these days that they don't realize peanut butter is made with peanuts?

Was it smooth or crunchy? I won't eat the smooth. I only eat crunchy. Just thought you would like to know.

It may be a legal requirement.

You can rest assured that that statment on the side of your peanut butter jar is the result of some greedy asshat's lawsuit, and Skippy is now posting the warning to protect itself from other greedy asshats.

I understand that. I mean after all we live in an ultra wussy, uber litigious society, but damn. Peanut Butter may contain peanuts? Is that warning really necessary? If you are stupid enough to eat peanut butter and you have a peanut allergy then you probably deserve to die.

Bingo. No peanut statement = some guy fatally allergic to peanuts = mourning family seeking monetary revenge.

Actually it is some all natural brand my GF bought at a health food store. 3/4 of the stuff in my house is from there. I keep telling her I don't give a crap if something is all nautral or not, but she is little miss organic. Eh, oh well.

Why not? They have beer may get you drunk labels on beer so I guess peanuts in peanut butter was bound to follow.

Reson #1 why I would always be undeemed to sit on a jury....

I'd be demanding that Skippy countersue and seek the death penalty for the plaintiffs being retards.

Well, you should thank her. Unnatural peanut butter (and that's what it is) like Skippy, JIF, Peter Pan, Reeses, are all viciously unhealthy. The agent that they use in that stuff to keep it from separating (partially hydrogenated vegetable oil) is by all accounts worse for your heart than natural heart cloggers like cholesterol.

Reminds me of the commercials for sleeping pills with the warning "May cause drowsiness"
