It makes me nuts!

EdWonk has been talking about the need for tort reform and stupid lawsuits. I'm guessing lawsuits are what's behind all the new allergy labeling on foods. I think it's probably a good thing that some products are being labeled. I mean, I'm sure there are some foods you wouldn't guess that have wheat or nuts, or whatever. And it can't really hurt the food companies to print one more piece of information on the label. But, I think things are going a little far now. Have you noticed that when you buy nuts the label says "warning. this package may contain nuts or was produced in a factory that handles nuts." Shocking! If you don't believe me, go to your pantry or nearby grocery store and look. I'll wait.
