Health and safety rules have been ridiculed after a brand of peanut butter was withdrawn because the jar does not warn it contains nuts.

The Whole Earth product is called '3 Nut Butter' and makes plain on the front of the label that it contains walnuts and pecans as well as peanuts.

But thousands of the £2.50 jars, available in major supermarkets such as Tesco, are being recalled because they breach rules which state there has to be a nut allergy warning in English on the jar.

The withdrawal, which was posted by Kent County Council, prompted hilarity and disbelief on social media.

Perhaps it's because peanuts aren't technically a nut. They are legumes.

Another apparent case of clueless and unqualified dolts being put into situations where they are clearly not up to the task  ???

Seeing that kind of nonsense cropping up a lot these days in areas where bureucracies are involved..

Food safety stuffups; poorly applied environmental and wildlife protections; ill-thought-through knife and gun laws -- just some examples cropping up regularly these days.

Even worse when "appearances for appearances sake"and political expediency take priority ahead of actually getting positive results..

Exactly.

Are people who are allergic to nuts also allergic to legumes?
