    Because if you have a life threatening allergy you never bother to familiarise yourself with what triggers you!

    I remember the first time I saw "May Contain Nuts" on a bag of nuts. I thought it was a joke.

    If you are allergic to peanuts and stupid enough to eat them because they didnt warn you that it contains peanuts, then you deserve to die from your allergic reaction. Its not like the peanut plants have signs on them in nature saying warning if you are allergic to peanuts, don`t eat these. We are preventing Natural selection from happening and its letting stupid people breed...

    To be honest, I would not know that "Monkey Nuts" refers to Peanuts, and might think it is a different variety of nut altogether.

    That, or Monkey Testicles

    You mean someone was stupid enough to pick up a peanut, open the shell and eat it without realizing it was a peanut?

    Usually stupid makes me laugh but that`s just sad really.

    Over the content of peanuts or the lack of simian testicles?

    Wait what ?.. They recalled a shipment of peanuts (the cartooney kind with the shell still on them), because they had forgot to print "may contain peanuts" on the packages ?..

    Is it just me, or does anyone who dies from this printing error deserve his/her fate ?..

    "Monkey nuts?"

    That`s what peanuts are often called in the UK, referring to peanuts in the shell. I understand you couldn`t say that in the US.

    To all of you bashing this, I have a friend to whom peanut dust may be lethal without medication, if he had only as much as opened that bag he would have had an allergic reaction.

    I hate it when I buy a bag of monkey nuts and find peanuts inside. It`s getting harder and harder to find a reliable source of testicles these days.

    If you have a peanut allergy and you do not know that peanuts in the shell not only *may* contain peanuts, but actually *do* contain peanuts, then you not only deserve to die, I think it should pretty much be mandatory.

    Make a mistake blame someone else and sue them for it.

    to Tiredofnicks: if I (or pretty much any mildly intelligent person) had a peanut allergy and wanted to buy anything at all that contained the word "nuts", even without a warning label I would turn the package over and reach the ingredients label. Ingredients: Peanuts, salt.

    @Tiredofnicks, this is a BAG FULL OF PEANUTS!!! Why in the world would someone with a deadly peanut allergy open a bag full of peanuts??? He has to be told that peanuts may contain peanuts? How is he not dead already?

    I agree with all the comments about how stupid this is... but think of it this way: laws must be uniformly enforced. What are you supposed to do when you have a law mandating that nut products must have a specific label and one brand doesn`t have that label? Regardless of how obvious it may be that there are indeed nuts inside, it is still a violation. To allow it would be unfair to their customers and to their competitors who do comply.
