Just finished a salad with cold roast lamb. The pack of celery sticks was labelled celery sticks of course,but underneath this it said "Allergy advice. Contains celery" I could not believe it,when did anyone hear of someone suffering an attack because of eating celery? drum drum drum drum drum

It is not quite as funny as you think - I once had a colleague who had to avoid celery - it would cause a rash to develop on her face and neck.

I suffer from a cucumber allergy. If I eat cucumber I get severe indigestion. I cannot eat a sandwich that has had cucumber in it. Even if I remove the cucumber the juice it leaves behind will affect me.  Surprising but true - I can eat Gherkin without a problem.

Having said that - the label is a bit stupid - but in this age of com.pen.sation businesses have to protect themselves from stupid claims.
