It had to happen: peanut butter now comes with a warning that, yup, it contains actual peanuts.

On the other hand, perhaps this isn't as absurd as it may seem. Or, to put it another way, it's good to see that peanut butter is, well, peanut butter and not something made using ersatz-peanut-like substances. That this is reassuring is, of course, also depressing.
