I don't know why I swallowed that ... um ... NUT

There was an old lady who swallowed a fly Nut.
I dunno why she swallowed that fly Nut,
Perhaps she'll die.

HELLO - I ate this whole bag in the last 72 hours

and now I hear this?

Those who know me well know that I have major food phobias...this just stinks. My mom got a belly laugh out of it when she saw the news though, paused it for me so she could laugh as I watched it. Thanks mom.

ARTICLE QUOTE: Right now, the FDA is advising Americans not to eat pistachios but not to throw away their pistachios either. Basically, people should hold on to their pistachios until the FDA knows more about which products are affected.

Ok, Yeah - sure no problem - I hang on to them all the way to the GARBAGE CAN.

So sad! I'd do the same thing, though. :) Enjoy your nut-free day!

The second I saw the label on the picture, I knew where this post was going....I heard it on the radio last night. Good Luck. Hopefully, you will not be affected! That's too bad, cuz I love pistachios, too!

Oh bummer! I'm allergic to nuts, to this doesn't affect me. But man, I feel bad for you because I tend to be food-phobic as well.

Hmmm. To nut or not to nut. I hope your pistachios aren't affected.

That stinks! It is not fun when your favorite food or snack is sort of recalled but not really. Talk about confusing!
