Odd that KP did not sell similar quality under their own name.

A hangover from Yahoo Groups where they were very insistent you limited quoting previous posts.

Not really. With a finite amount of "best quality" nuts available, after you have the very best to M&S, and the next best to Sainsburys, all you're left with is moderate quality nuts. I assume the "mediocre" (small or otherwise appetising) nuts go into peanut butter.

The same is true for potatoes re KP and M&S and Sainsbury's for potato crisps.

There are also many fatalities from shell fish allergies, not sure how that compares with the peanut problem.

Latex is another problem and can build up after many years of use, as in medical staff start having problems withsevere skin problems.

As for saying that it didn't happen years ago, well maybe it did and the peanut allergy deaths were classed as sudden unknown fatalities, unexplained deaths before it was proved people could die of an allergy.

Wow. Italy has only just given a choice of tomato sauce instead of Bolognese sauce and chicken instead of pork for a few muslims. They have an idea of gluten free but a vegetarian diet has never existed here. They are centuries away from letters home about peanuts.

I don't need to explain much as you're already on record on having previously "thought like me" are you not? You got selfish when your situation changed.

I'll repeat my question for you ...

where is the scientific proof regarding these allergies? why are they so common now? there is no explanation, its all fluff. .....

I see your point. All the parents are sadistic and the kids are masochistic because unless there is absolute scientific proof, they are just crazy.

Keep your cat indoors from now on OK. My kids are allergic to cat hair, I don't have scientific proof, or a reason why, I'm just crazy, but you MUST keep your cat inside and off my land forever understand? or are you not emphatic towards my kids?

I'm gonna take a wild guess that cat hair doesn't cause anaphylaxis in your children, but if it did I think you'd wind your neck in on the matter of peanut butter.

As there hasn't been a case of ebola at Auntie Bob's hospital presumably that disease also "fluff" without scientific proof?

If that is what you want, then try to get a city ordinance passed but schools have a responsibility to try to keep kids safe. I don't know how bad cat allergies can get but I know they are common and if the school had a cat day without informing parents, I suspect there may be some irate parents.

At least one, "raising his concerns".

I was counting down on five fingers on when you would bring up Ebola.

I'm asking questions and not getting answers, you offer selfish opinion, parlor talk and fluff, of which you seem you enjoy.

previously a PB & J sarnie was fine. And it it should be now IMO, no right testicle required, got a problem with that then YOU deal with it, capisce?
