Thanks for this link. Not to appear dense, but I am confused, though, about why the article would be concerning.
I did notice someone must have left a comment making an unkind remark about peanut allergies. That comment must have been removed, as I can see others' reactions to it but the original comment has been deleted.

I think the concern is that the author loves nuts in everything? It doesn't mention allergies so I'm not sure what else it could be. btw my MIL is that way. She puts nuts in everything during the holidays and claims that no one will eat them otherwise. So we quit going to her house for holidays. I'm happier that way anyway.

I was impressed they removed the unkind comment; that's a nice change!
Thanks for clarifying, cfkjc2. I didn't think of that angle. I know what you mean, though--I find similar things frustrating too, like why restaurants don't use peanuts or peanut oil in their entrees or appetizers but yet insist on having desserts containing PB!
Best,

Actually there are tons of articles in magazines about how good nuts are for people (people who they won't kill that is) and also lots of recipes with nuts and for the most part it never mentions allergies. I very rarely see food allergies mentioned in magazine articles.
