There’s a peanut allergy alert for “Chocolate to Die For” ice cream.
I don’t think the name was intended to be taken literally 😬
It reminds me of the time I saw a recall of “Toxic Waste Nuclear Sludge” candy, which turned out to actually be toxic. I mean, with a name like that…? (In that case it was lead found in the candy bars).
Though now that I think about it, my first full-on anaphylactic reaction was to an ice cream cake that was allegedly “chocolate, chocolate, everything chocolate” (and turned out not to be).
That’s eerily familiar.
All right, all right! ) Happy now?
From a food allergy alert released today:
Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Inc., is recalling “Chocolate Covered Almonds” due to undeclared peanuts and “Chocolate Double-Dipped Peanuts” due to undeclared almonds. [emphasis added]
I have to wonder: are they just really bad about keeping their ingredients separate, or did they get the labels switched on a couple of batches?
Received the replacement battery for the PowerBook yesterday. It was shipped out via DHL, with a prepaid return label for shipping the old battery back via regular mail.
Last night I drained the old battery, plugged the new one in, and packaged up the recalled one in the box. At lunch today I went to the post office to send it off.
As I was walking up the steps, I remembered the “Does this package contain anything liquid, explosive, or otherwise hazardous?” question that postal clerks are required to ask. If you’re mailing a defective battery that could theoretically burst into flames, how exactly are you supposed to answer?
I figured it would be best not to joke about it.
As it was, I just said it was a laptop battery straight out, so the question didn’t come up.
