Tesco stands firm on nuts may contain nuts labels
Allergy campaigners had been all up in the retailer's grill recently, about unnecessary warnings on such products as yoghurt, sweet potatoes and ham.
Tesco had argued that the warning labels were only be applied to items if there was a genuine risk of cross contamination.
It's not just loony labelling when you have a nut allergy. Oh no. Many of the campaigners were parents of nut-allergy nippers, and it's no joke when trying to prevent them from death by potentially nutty ham.
New EU rules on allergy labelling are due to come into force later this year, and retailers have started to amend their packaging to suit.
But as many campaigners wonder if it's a 'one size fits all' legal disclaimer which can be pointed out when challenged, is in fact highlighting a myriad of issues that suggest standards aren't being fully adhered to.
And dear God, we can do without another month of weak puns on twitter that happened in the wake of the horse meat crisis.
