A supermarket in England is taking packages of peanuts out of their stores because their containers do not say they “may contain peanuts.”
Booths is a grocery store chain; they have 29 locations in northern England. They pulled 300 of the packets off their shelves after a health agency issued an allergy alert.
The alert was issued because the food didn’t have a warning telling the customer that it might make people with allergies get sick.
The containers are labelled as “Whole Hearted Roasted Monkey Nuts.”
“Monkey nuts” is a British nickname for peanuts in the shell.
The allergy alert was issued by the Food Standards Agency (FSA), which is in charge of ensuring food safety in the United Kingdom.
