Question Berries from Palm Trees - Harmful to dogs?

Does anybody out there know whether the small, peanut-sized, black/purplish berries that fall from a palm tree are poisonous to dogs? The wind has tossed loads from our tree onto the garden and our Basset hound eats them and we're just a bit concerned.

I dont think so, well the rats eat them and they survive unfortunately.

They are probable similar to a date, so should be no danger.
