Manufacturing / lab tests
English term or phrase: Nuts
I'm translating the lab tests on a group of sugar strands from a "confectionery" company. After the ingredients chart, comes this warning:
"WARNING: This product is manufactured on a site that uses nuts."
My question: Are they referring to nuts as in the dry fruit contained in a shell (the ones squirrels like), or the metal piece which fastens onto a screw to secure it, or do they have a predominantly MALE factory :), or are THEY nuts!!! What's the danger in having nuts of any kind around!!! I Don't get it. Has anyone ever seen this warning before!

Vaya Vaya, esta no la sabía. Yo me imaginé que serían nueces (las otras NUTS tenían menos sentido aún) pero no me atrevía a ponerlo hasta saber POR QUÉ. Gracias a todos. Así que la nueces que tanto nos gustan ... alergénicas ..hmmm. Interesante. Ahí van sus KUDOS POINTS.
