Received a flyer in the mail yesterday, that they are hosting a presentation on how to become a Planters Peanut Vending Machine distribututor. Yup - on of those machines that shoots out a handful peanuts. That's gross - with or without a peanut allergy. Here's a link to the registration.

I don't know what to do! Short of showing up at the event with handouts on peanut allergy statistics, and risking getting into an altercation with the organizers - I'm not sure how I can influence this. There is no phone number or site to go except to register.

Anyone else seen or hear of this?

All I can think is to wonder how long before the peanuts become rancid.

I don't imagine you would become a tycoon like they promise shlepping bulk nuts around. I haven't seen any of them in the last couple of years. About 5 years ago, there was one in our skating rink, and I phoned and explained how dangerous to have loose nuts like that and they were very understanding and changed what it was filled with to some candy.
