Food items containing peanuts can cause severe allergic reactions and even allergic shock to sufferers from a peanut allergy. The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Agency (CAFIA) did not allow a biscuit product with chocolate and hazelnut to be sold in retail because the peanut content was 3,500 times higher than the limit. While the product was labeled “May contain peanuts”, the amount of peanut was significantly over the limit for unintentional cross-contamination during manufacturing
