LONDON, Jan. 12 (UPI) -- A British chocolate maker said a new warning label will inform consumers of milk content in milk chocolate, even though "milk" is in the candy's name.

Cadbury said the famous Cadbury Dairy Milk chocolate bar -- which lists milk first on the ingredients list and explains that the bars contain "the equivalent of three quarters of a pint of fresh liquid milk in every half pound of milk chocolate" -- will soon bear an additional message reading "CONTAINS: MILK," Sky News reported Monday.

Too hilarious. Well, Cadbury has to protect its milk chocolate behind from our knee-jerk, litigious society that cannot comprehend that milk chocolate may actually have milk in it.

hey you think that's bad?
my first job was at a bakery. i had a lady call one time saying she had been to a party over the weekend where they had one of our cakes. she wanted to know if there was any dairy in it---(buttercream frosting). well anyone that has ever baked knows there is obviously dairy in cake.
well i told her that YES there was dairy. she asked to speak to the manager just to make sure.
i mean come on people----why would i even lie about something so trivial and obvious!

actually for this, we can thank the hypersensitive, sue happy parents of kids w/ food allergies.

some new "warnings" coming to a store near you:

-Planter's Peanuts: WARNING MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS!!
-100% Whole Wheat bread: WARNING MAY CONTAIN WHEAT!!!
-Soy milk: WARNING MAY CONTAIN SOY!!!
-store brand dozen of brown eggs: WARNING MAY CONTAIN EGGS!!!
-platter of shrimp cocktail: WARNING MAY CONTAIN SHELLFISH!!


(I mean no offense to those allergic to certain food items, I'm just joking around )
