Re: Peanut Butter on Hamburgers...

Back when my power was out for four days I ate nothing but peanut butter sandwiches the whole time. Even I got sick of the stuff by then.

Re: Peanut Butter on Hamburgers...

I think the big issue is liabilities due to people with peanut allergies. Who wants to get sued?

Re: Peanut Butter on Hamburgers...

People with a peanut allergy are going knowingly eat something with peanut butter in it?

Besides most places post "contains nuts" somewhere--even if it's not always easy to find.

Re: Peanut Butter on Hamburgers...

That's true, and if you have a life threatening peanut allergy you won't be eating at a fast food that has peanut butter as an option. You just don't know when some is going to end up on a grill or whatever.

Some people can be so severely allergic that just smelling peanuts is enough to cause a deadly throat-swelling-shut reaction.

I'm like that with homeopaths.

Re: Peanut Butter on Hamburgers...

Pick any food item. Look hard enough and you'll find someone who's deathly to allergic to it. By your logic restaurants should serve nothing.

Peanuts happen to be one of the more common allergies. They are also a ubiquitous culinary ingredient. Proprietors have strict guidelines and regulations that are set by the law. These rules ensure, to the best of their ability, that accidents and cross-contamination do not occur. There will always be mistakes, of course, but completely omitting a common component simply out of fear of legal action is silly. Plus, some of the responsibility must fall on the consumer.

Re: Peanut Butter on Hamburgers...

^True, but peanut allergies seem to be one of the more deadly ones. I really feel bad for kids who have to watch what they touch because they might have a reaction off somebody who ate peanut butter three hours ago and touched a doorknob. It's so sad.

There are planes that don't serve peanuts because of the allergy problems.

And what about people who keep Kosher? Oh man...there's a can of worms!

Sorry for the threadjacking! @__@;;

^It's a crappy situation, sure, but I wouldn't stress to much about it. I've had to be careful about what I eat since I was a kid, one learns to deal with it.

Whose logic? Don't look at me, I only eat at asian places and if you were asian and allergic to peanuts you wouldn't make it out of infancy. I'm just saying I understand if a fast food place that has advertised itself as nut free would choose not to suddenly include a nut product in its menu. Also while fast food places may be strongly procedural in their cooking a regular cafe or restaurant isn't. If you have a deadly allergy you don't even think about eating there.

Not all at once, I hope.

I'll order a burger with ketchup OR mustard OR mayo OR barbecue sauce, but only one dressing per burger.
